The book

Tremendous excitement and relief today as I got word that my book is now printed and available for purchase. This book, Event TV, is basically what my PhD thesis was all about. I am thrilled that it is in print. The publisher is PostPressed, an small, committed academic press in Brisbane, who distribute their publications online through e-content management. I am delighted that there is a student price which is ten dollars cheaper than the RRP. I am also just basically delighted that they agreed to publish something that most likely will never sell 10000 copies, that they believe in publishing academic work from young researchers in small volumes. John Knight, the editor has a strong belief in the traditional values of academia and for that PostPressed should be celebrated. If you are interested the link is here.

(For some reason blogger won’t do the link properly so you’ll have to copy and paste if interested) There is a table of contents as well as the reviews/comments that appear on the back cover. I am extremely grateful to Geoff Danaher, Jennifer Elsden-Clifton and Jason Jacobs for writing such lovely things about my work and letting me use them. Apparently, now I need to organise a book launch. Who knows about such things? Not me, but I think I am going to have to find out.

    Nice reviews and how very exciting!! I loved Felix the Cat when I was small. I know the words to the song: I shan’t bore you with them.

    I would love to see the words to Felix the CAt…I wrote about him as an image!

  3. Felix the cat, the wonderful wonderful cat.
    Whenever he gets in a fix he reaches into his bag of tricks.

    Felix the cat
    The wonderful, wonderful cat
    You’ll laugh so much your sides will ache
    Your heart will go pit-a-pat
    Watching Felix the wonderful cat

    There could be more, that’s all I recall…Perhaps 2Paw knows if there are, and has a better memory than me!

    Congratulations on the book, it sounds great and the reviews so good. The table of contents is a great idea, showcasing the book to the world. I hope it does well for you! And I can still remember the intro part of each Felix cartoon on tv on a scratchy old black and white tv, sometime in the 60s…loved him!
