In the process of doing some promotional work for Stephen Meader’s Lumberjack, one of our currently discounted hardcover titles, I came across a vintage review of the book by the New York Herald Tribune, which was written before the newspaper ceased publication in 1966. A little throwback, and the review still holds up some 50 years later!
“This is the sort of book, rare today, which is equally enthralling to adults and children. Dan Garland is a very real and very human boy and his adventures and experiences are completely absorbing. This really is a grand book and one it would not be possible to recommend too highly.”
It may be a little early to be thinking about Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. After all, I still haven’t dragged out a single Easter decoration with five days to go. A record, I believe. However, I am in planning mode for our spring book sale. With 44 Stephen Meader titles to choose from, I thought it might be fun to give our fans a say in the selection. So readers, which titles would you like most to see included in our next book sale?
Receiving notes like this one makes my day. I love that Stephen Meader’sbooks delighted so many readers as children and that their republication brings back the joy all over again. We love our customers!
“I would also like to thank you for your efforts to bring these books back.
I’m 44 and remember reading Bulldozer when I was six. The first big book I
ever read and loved it!” ~J.R.

A wonderful thing about one of the courses I’m currently taking is the ability to apply the lessons to my real-life business. Including the birth of this blog. I feel that over the past two weeks I’ve been immersed in a sea of social media marketing basics and I really look forward to the time when the application of these tools feels a bit more familiar and I’m not longer treading water, but familiar and fluent with the strokes.
That said, I am pretty giddy for having successfully launched and linked our latest Valentine’s Day promotional book sale to our company Facebook and Twitter pages (and right now on our blog!) as additional outlets to our email marketing promotions. Basic? Yes. But there is an undeniable thrill with just getting into the water.
We are excited to create this space that’s not only an extension of our website as a place to showcase the entire beautifully republished works of Stephen Meader fiction, but also a place to share ideas, news and musings related to a love of books and reading. Welcome and stay tuned!
