I’m Fresh Talent!

GlasgowComaScale Apr15I was really pleased to hear the other day that when the paperback of The Glasgow Coma Scale is released in a few weeks, it’ll be part of WH Smith Travel’s ‘Fresh Talent’ promotion. A dozen titles are chosen to be featured in some or all of the company’s shops in train stations, airports, hospitals, etc; in our post-Net Book Agreement world, where debut authors can find it a struggle to be given shelf space or prominence in bookshops which tend to concentrate, understandably, on pushing more proven talent, this is a really great initiative, and a thrill to be part of. The paperback (pictured at left) will be out in WH Smithses from 27th June, a few days ahead of the official 2nd July publication date. I’m looking forward to seeing what other titles it sits alongside in the ‘Fresh Talent’ bay!
