    "I have had to learn the simplest things last."

    Mon, 16 Nov 2020 09:52:32 Permalink
    There’s been a lot of chat, pro and con, on industry listserves and chatlines, about the efficacy of the platform on which Boston Virtual Book Fair has been presented. The VBF dashboard can be confusing to non-Biblio users, and the time lag between post and appearance, as well as the occasional disappearance of entries are daunting. The reason for all this confusion is a simple one. The Biblio platform is confusing. At least when it comes to setting up virtual book fairs – because, as colleague John Kuenzig has pointed out, it was designed to do something else entirely. Continue Read More

    Four Book Fairs in Five Weeks - 14 March 2017

    Tue, 14 Mar 2017 08:31:33 Permalink
    It’s been a busy month, but we’ve now returned from New York, and things should be back to normal by the end of the week.This year we decided to do both California book fairs and follow those up with the two New York satellite-shadow shows.  Gail and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results; we sold well into the low five figures at each of the first three book fairs and did very well in the fourth. For the first time in a long time, customers--to include average collectors--weren’t timid when it came to buying.  What did they buy?  Well, Read More
