The only thing I love more than writing is wandering around bookshops, and the only thing I love more than wandering around bookshops is reading books. So it was only a matter of time before I launched a newsletter covering all those pursuits.
I originally envisaged Terry Freedman's Books Bulletin as simply a means of keeping anyone who was interested up-to-date with my book writing activities. However, I realised that it would also be a useful vehicle for sharing news of any interesting-sounding books I come across, and any interesting bookshops I wander around in.
It's going to be a monthly publication, at least initially. The first issue, which you can access by clicking on the picture at the top of this page, contains the following articles:
- Welcome to this Bulletin
- Review: Waterhouse on Newspaper Style
- Books I've come across
- Bookshops I like: Hatchards
- Progress report (about the book I'm working on)
The next issue will, I hope, include details of how to grab hold of a sample chapter of my (by then) completed book, and how to get the chance to have a free review copy.
Here's the sign-up form for this newsletter: subscribe.
