Happy, Not-So-Happy

Happy Publisher

Writing the story of Gary the Lovelorn Giant.

The pinging noise my inbox makes when an illustration arrives from one of our artists.

Receiving letters from our little fans.

Smelling a new edition.

Seeing our mags on the shelves of happy stockists.

The moment when that idea for a new magazine won’t let you sleep properly until you launch it.

Not-so-Happy Publisher

Only doing four issues a year.

That week in between sending files to the printers and getting issues back.

Emails from subscribers moaning they’ve not received their edition, THIS MONTH. We’re quarterly.

Another bookshop closing down.
