Exposure: Sinking To A Despicable Low

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 3, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Many will already have caught this story, which hit the news media and the world of literature yesterday: Claudio Gatti, an Italian ‘journalist’ claims to have discovered the identity of the writer Elena Ferrante, and has had no reservations in revealing it. I do not doubt for one moment that many will view this revelation […]

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 […]

Photography: Recycling The Old As New

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 28, 2016 in Photography |

The labor market is improving. How long have Americans waited to hear this piece of good news? Well, to be honest, not all that long since there have been regular reports that employment opportunities are growing and that the job market has seen a substantial turn for the better. At least in some areas. Perhaps […]

Truth In Journalism

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 5, 2016 in News & Opinion |

One of our local newspaper groups has decided it is time for a completely new look. The newspapers they produce haven’t changed in several decades, aside from the art of production, so they need to draw some attention to themselves, remind potential customers that they are there and, of course, protect their place in the […]

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 […]

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 […]
