Finding My Books

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 16, 2017 in Publishing |

After weeks of dismal weather, trying to get things in order here and many hard decisions, the future is beginning to look as if a ray of sunshine could appear any time soon. I certainly hope so. I’ve been asked a few times, by mail, about the books my small press publishing company brought out […]

Gender: Let Books Be Sexist

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 16, 2016 in Publishing |

Books are good, and we should promote them for children as much as for adults, of that there can be no doubt. They help educate us, tell us about society – not only our own – and can form our lives as much as take us into other worlds. Coloring books are, apparently, a thing […]

New Year: New Prices

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 2, 2016 in Publishing |

The first orders of the year are in and, since the post office was open today, out. Normally a cause for celebration; receiving orders for books on the first day of the year is a good thing, as is, of course, receiving orders for books on every other day of the year. It does, however, […]

The Making Of A Bestseller?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 27, 2015 in Publishing |

Now and then I do a quick check to see what I have in stock and what needs to be replenished, something I am sure everyone in the business of selling things does at least once a year if only to balance their books! And during my small inventory I discovered, to my delight, that […]

The Book Talk

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 10, 2015 in Publishing |

I’m having a little rush of reading German crime thrillers at the moment, although I’m not sure why. For many Germans, Swedish crime is the way to go, with literally dozens of translated books coming out each year from names many English-speaking readers will not recognize. Not that anyone is likely to know many of […]

Before You Start Self-Publishing

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 29, 2015 in Publishing |

There was a time, not so long ago, when I thought it could be worthwhile concentrating on self-published books; reviewing what is available; getting to know new authors; seeing how things are done. It was one of my many experiments, not one which I regret, but one which certainly opened my eyes to the hidden […]

Careful With Those Page Breaks!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 23, 2015 in Publishing |

Despite the fact that I haven’t written any reviews recently, I am still doing my fair share of reading whenever I get the chance. If there is a spare moment, it is filled with a book. Today I finished the most enjoyable Leaving Berlin by Joseph Kanon, a work which goes to prove that the […]

Still Working On Books

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 11, 2015 in Publishing |

It may seem to some that the publishing front has been very quiet recently, but there is plenty going on in the background. I’m hoping that we will have the next title – tentatively called ‘Thoughts On Three Virtues: Love, Faith, Hope’ out at the end of this month, although there are still textual edits […]

Biography: The Most Important Attributes

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 28, 2015 in Publishing |

I grabbed my usual copy of Philosophie Magazin from the kiosk while waiting for the bus and leafed through it with great expectations. The June / July issue is about food, and food, while not something I write about a great deal, is one of my interests. It is fair to say that I, along […]

Publishing: And The Bad News Is…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 3, 2015 in Publishing |

I thought everything was going so well and, to a certain extent it was and is. My publishing plans are still on target, nothing has changed there; we have new titles in preparation for this year; the accounts for 2013 have been cleared and approved. But every silver lining has a cloud, and my tax […]
