Today Little Brown launched two very exciting things. The Finishing School tumbler feed blog. That includes sample material, as well as DVD extras about the Academy, forthcoming lessons, and . . .
As a rule, I’m a little nervous about book trailers, but I’m quite chuffed with this one. It’s rather adorable and has a kind of Edward Gorey (like the credits of BBC Mystery) meets Monty Python’s cartoons.
The fan site reported on this before I was even awake this morning! Nicole is on it, By George!
