There seems to have been quite a lot going on in the world while I have been away from my blog, at least according to Bryan Appleyard: naked cleaners, invading skyscrapers, prime minister’s plane overshooting, and an earthquake in Dumfries. However, with great respect to Bryan and his informative, engaging blog, the best news I’ve read so far is that Books, Inq. has been made the Small Press Exchange pick of the week. Congratulations, Frank.
The Small Press Exchange aims to provide authors, booksellers, publishers, librarians and "general book enthusiasts" (aka "readers"?) with the resources they need. As well as providing industry news and directories, the site also allows people to make connections to other members via social networks.
