The full set!

I'm always thrilled to receive my physical copies of the Furrowed Middlebrow titles from Dean Street Press, and even though I've already seen the covers and the intros and (obviously) read the books long before they're released, opening the box with the actual books always feels a bit like Christmas.  It never gets old, and I always have to pinch myself a bit to believe that they're really "my" books.



So now that I've previewed all the titles over the past couple of weeks, here's a glimpse of the full set of new, World War II-themed titles. And here also is a thank you for all the wonderful support the books have been getting from readers and bloggers and reviewers, and all those reading the books and recommending them to friends and relatives and, indeed, total strangers through the magic of the internet!



Before too long, we'll have an announcement of another set of Furrowed Middlebrow titles (three authors, eight titles), tentatively set for January release. I think you'll be pleased...  In the meantime, I might be posting a bit less for a time, while I push ahead more intensely with a major update to my author list, including nearly 150 new authors (some of whom I've already sampled, with varying results), and revised, expanded, and/or corrected details for hundreds of the 2,000 authors already on the list. That's my main mission for the next couple of months, and then we have a holiday to Philadelphia, Boston, and Vermont coming up in October, so I have plenty on my plate!



Meanwhile, enjoy the new books (and the older ones!) and look forward to more coming soon.

  10. Is the best way to purchase thru Amazon? I have been picking and choosing downloads on my kindle. Oh how I wish I had space for a shelf or two of the actual books. They are lovely. Congratulations on a job well imagined and executed.

NOTE: The comment function on Blogger is notoriously cranky. If you're having problems, try selecting "Name/URL" or "Anonymous" from the "Comment as" drop-down (be sure to "sign" your comment, though, so I know who dropped by). Some people also find it easier using a browser like Firefox or Chrome instead of Internet Explorer.

But it can still be a pain, and if you can't get any of that to work, please email me at furrowed.middlebrow@gmail.com. I do want to hear from you!
