A different kind of ultrasound

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

The New Rope String Band asked us to update their web site with the news that one of the group – Vera – will be taking a break for maternity leave. The announcement takes the form of a short video clip, used in the New Rope String Band’s performance at The Sage Gateshead 28/4/07.

Michael Jecks longlisted for Crime Novel of the Year

Friday, May 18th, 2007

Another success for a client of ours: Michael Jecks has been long-listed for the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year, for his book The Death Ship of Dartmouth. There’s a page here where you can vote and, we hope, propel him onto the shortlist and the prize itself!

Not one of ours

Wednesday, May 16th, 2007

Given that publishing is all about disseminating information, you’d think that publishers would love the internet. Book publishers produce easily-posted items for a niche market which is scattered worldwide: a web site is the perfect way of selling to that market. And many small publishers know this, and make use of it (and I’m not just talking about our clients!).

So why do the big publishers so often have terrible sites? The design may be attractive enough, but they are so often a nightmare to navigate, and months (at least) out of date.

I was looking for information about a forthcoming publication from the French publisher Belfond: I didn’t find it…

  1. Roger Says:
    Belfond have repaired their site now, though the information on it is still woefully out of date.
