Today on the blog we have a guest post from Allister Thompson, editor of Metal on Ice.

Allister:

The Metal on Ice project was many years in the making. Author Sean Kelly has been a friend of mine for over twenty years — in fact, we were in a band together for several of them. Well, we still are, because the band never officially broke up!

Wow, it’s Hallo-week already, and tomorrow the streets will be filled with ghosts and goblins galore. There’s nothing spooky about our media highlights though, so take a break from carving pumpkins and practicing your zombie walk to hear about what our authors have been up to this week!

Chances are high that you heard, saw, or read about a Dundurn author this week—they were everywhere! So let’s jump right into our weekly highlights, starting with the exciting news that Is This Your First War? Travels Through the Post-9/11 Islamic World won the Ottawa Book Award for Non-Fiction on Tuesday.

After a little over a month as Dundurn's intern, I am realizing that there is never going to be a week where our authors and staff aren't busy, so I will refrain from saying it's been another busy week here from now on. Take it as a given! With that said, our weekly media highlights are gathered together once more, so take a moment and catch up on what we've been (very) busy with. 

It’s time for another update from DundurnHQ!  thumbnail

Once again it has been a busy week, with our authors receiving award nominations and getting some awesome media attention and our staff keeping busy both in the office and overseas at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Speaking of Frankfurt, check out our booth, doesn't it look great? That's our VP Beth Bruder between appointments, surrounded by Dundurn books and posters. Beth and our Director of Sales and Marketing, Margaret Bryant, are keeping very busy meeting with publishers, rights agents, and book sellers from around the world.
