Book News: part 21

The first fiscal year as new "manager" (that I never planned) is complete. In fact, the very thought of being a manager some times nauseates me. I so do not feel like a manager.

One of the perks of being in this current position is developing a wonderful manuscript for a well-loved columnist of a national magazine. Also, the position allowed me to do the book design (i.e. font choice, page/chapter layout, etc.), publish it (even visit the print house where it was manufactured), and distribute it to adoring readers.

Some of you have figured out who the author/essayist is. For those of you who do not know, here's who the essayist is [Link]. You may also purchase the books here [Link].

Essay Collection: A has been distributed more than 8800 copies.

Essay Collection: B has mailed over 4100 copies in the last 10 months. One reader of this collection recently wrote: "...an amazing writer. And amazon doesn't have the one..."

I'm working on that little detail. Amazon has listed Essay Collection A [here] but the inventory is not currently available. Essay Collection B is available here [Link].

A 2008 Executive Weekly Planner has just been made available [here] as of this last weekend and is already receiving promising orders. This was a big challenge for me due to the fact that it is the first book I've designed exclusively using InDesign CS3. It is also a unique product to print and requires more attention to detail.

A Childrens' Book is scheduled to go to press in the next couple of weeks. This is bound to be a fun book for kids of all ages. It's a whimsical exploration of the story behind word origins like "cookie," "potshot," and others.

So forgive me if I haven't responded to your emails in months. I'm the only one managing the development, production, promotion and distribution of these book titles.
