It’s been a busy week at Blair. B.O.Q. author N.P. Simpson is on tour, we’re getting ready for the release of Bearwallow, and the 2014 IPPY Award winners included three Blair authors and two books from our distributed lines. And that’s just a small sampling of all that’s happening at Blair.
- The IPPYs!—Met Her on the Mountain, Long Gone Daddies, and Porch Dogs all took home Independent Publisher Book Awards, as did In the Garden of Stone (Hub City Press) and Astoria to Zion (Lookout Books)
- Throwback Thursday–For our first #ThrowbackThursday, we threw it way way back, to Mr. Blair in the 1900’s, looking both dapper and adorable in an…ascot? Bow-tie?
- World Book Night–Okay, okay, we know World Book Night was weeks ago, but we got this adorable picture of our Designer Debbie and Business Manager Margaret up online a little late and it is just too cute!
- Uncovering quotes from Ron Rash–While looking for great lines from our April sales titles, we discovered a knockout from Ron Rash’s 2011 collection, Waking. Rash, better known for his prose, can even break our hearts with a dozen words.
- Dapper display in Wilmington–Pomegranate Books in Wilmington, NC, did a bang-up job of displaying the latest title from local, award-winning press Lookout Books, who just added another accolade with an IPPY win for Astoria to Zion.
See you next Monday for more Byte-Size Blair. Until then, we’ll leave you with this final thought from Publicist Trisina’s dog, Oatmeal:
