End of the Week Round-up #2

17th September 2021

This weekly email and most of the other information that I’ll be releasing through this channel will be free, but to access the indie publisher information pages readers will have to be paid subscribers. You can still become a paid subscriber even if you have no need of the publisher information and a subscription helps me keep this project (and other projects) going, helping with domain and hosting costs and other outgoings.

What have I been up to this week?

A week of reading, quite a lot of which I can’t talk about for quite a while, but really enjoying the short story form once more.

I’ve been collecting information for this newsletter as I float around different social media platforms, including some open submissions and events.

There is a basic A-Z list of publishers/presses onto the About page for the newsletter and it will be here that you can always find the information on indie publishers and presses.

These are various bits and pieces I’ve found whilst working away on social media.

What’s happening next week?

"Pinky: Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight? Brain: The same thing we do every night, Pinky - try to take over the world!"

As it’s gearing up for the festive season (Halloween) it’s going to get really busy at work so I’ll be writing the next update as I go along through the week to try and keep on top of it.

There are still several books staring at me from the shelf to the left whispering ‘read me, us before the others’ and at least two of them seem to be winning.

Remember if you have any news or offers you would like included in the newsletter please email me at contact@bigbeardedbookseller.com and I’ll get it on ASAP.
