The Private Life of the Diary . . . out and about

Dear Unbounders,

Thanks to Unbound's wonderful publicist, Amy Winchester, The Private Life of the Diary was reviewed by The Times this Saturday and was the leading non-fiction title.

It is also a 'Recommended' non-fiction title with Waterstones, spied front of house at Waterstones, Oxford. I'm tweeting and Facebooking to make sure everyone knows that it is possible for an independent publishing house, and one that produces 'elegant' books (so Roger Lewis in The Times says, a man who is not easy to please, I hear), to gain coverage. Plenty of it too!

I would recommend Unbound to anyone who has a good book on the hard drive.

Thank you for all your kind support.


Warmest wishes


The jolly Times review is below (which stubbornly refuses to sit up straight).
