This week at Valley Press, #79: 'Forever, Soon'
Just a quick one this week, as we've been busy putting I Was Britpopped – the first ever comprehensive guide to the Britpop movement of the 1990s, if you missed the memo – on bookshelves around the country, and more importantly in readers' hands. You can see a shot of the authors in Waterstones Leeds above (one of the very best branches); head here to see it officially filed under 'music', and here to see an impressive display in Waterstones Camden. Job done I reckon.
In other important news: we've organised a fantastic launch event for Helen Cadbury's poetry collection Forever, Now. Join us on Tuesday December 5th, from 6.30pm at York Explore for poetry, music and a general celebration of these wonderful poems, which have already come to mean a great deal to people, even before ink has hit paper. (If you can't make that date, don't worry: we'll be doing another in the spring.)
Previously, we've listed this book as being released in 'November', but with the event now in the diary, I've decided to push the release back so no-one has a copy before December 5th. Apologies to any pre-orderers who are watching their letterboxes anxiously, waiting for the book to arrive – it'll be worth it!
