 MARTIN HUGHES GAMES BACK WITH AUTUMNWATCH


Evenings drawing in...and that means that Autumnwatch's presenter is off getting very cold and wet in preparation for the new series which starts at the end of the month. (He's currently in Estonia checking out migrating Bewick swans.) Martin's hilarious memoirs of his years behind (rather than in front of) the camera making wildlife programmes are being published in the Spring by Constable. We've just seen the cover (brilliant) and the in house lawyers are just giving it the OK....

 SEX ON EARTH


Early copies of JULES HOWARD's first book have just arrived - covered with early praise and a splendid jacket. It's the launch title for Bloomsbury's new natural history list SIGMA. Publication in late October with lots of national PR lined up for Jules and US publication in early November.

 MULLIGAN AND VAN EMDEN EACH OVER 500,000 COPIES SOLD!


Royalty statement time and ANDY MULLIGAN author of TRASH (the movie world premiere in Rio tonight!) has sold over half a million copies worldwide of his five published children's novels. In a time of falling sales and universal publishing gloom this is phenomenal number- and this is before the movie effect.


And RICHARD VAN EMDEN, the UK's foremost historian of World War One has now sold 622,000 copies of his various works, most recently by Bloomsbury. He can rightly claim to be one of the top three bestselling historians writing currently.


These are staggering numbers for authors without TV exposure, national newspaper columns or other celebrity. Word of mouth and talent and effective publishing still make the book business tick.

 SLIDESHOW LAUNCH AT WATERSTONES HAMPSTEAD


100 people gathered last Tuesday evening to hear author Marjorie Ann Watts in conversation with Amanda Craig and to buy signed copies of the memoir of a wartime childhood in London and Cornwall.

The discussion was enthralling -and covered the relative freedom of children in the 1930s, the problem of the current rich 'ghettos' in London where local workers can no longer afford to live, the  author's experience of wartime London and description of her grandmother who founded PEN. Splendid reviews in the Spectator and Camden New Journal.

AUGUST, 2014

 TRASH FILM PREMIER ANNOUNCED


We finally have a date for the UK release of Stephen Daldry's film of Andy Mulligan's international bestselling novel TRASH. January 30th 2015. We've seen an early screening and it is thrilling - incredibly faithful to the book but with transformative ideas and a great script by Richard Curtis.


Andy's new novel WORK EXPERIENCE, another high-octane thriller but this one set in the UK is published by David Fickling Books the same month.
