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 […]

When Was The Last Time You Saw This?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 9, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

In some ways this is a trick question, but when did you last see someone reading a book? When did you last see someone so engrossed in what they were reading, printed on paper, that nothing else mattered? Believe it or not, and despite all the dark predictions for publishers of real books, the times […]

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 […]

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 […]

New Books: The Art Of Satire?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 2, 2015 in Publishing |

Whilst it may be reasonably quiet on the Internet front it certainly isn’t so behind the scenes, and this is one of those times when I am relieved to be working with other people to keep my small publishing venture alive and kicking. My co-director has laid a new proposition – in the form of […]

Working On Two Fronts

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 15, 2015 in Publishing |

Every single time I promise myself I am going to cut back, going to relax, take a little more leisure time, I look back after a few days and realize that I’ve done the opposite. In theory I am relaxing right now, working on my degree course and steering clear of the Internet. But only […]

Finally, May I Present…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 14, 2015 in Internet, Publishing |

It seems almost as if it were yesterday that I first thought of writing and publishing my own works and, coupled with it, publishing monographs and short stories from other authors too. In truth it is considerably longer, and since then a lot of water has passed under the bridge. My publishing company has five […]
