Enamel Roundup

There have been another couple of reviews of Enamel coming through from other blogs around New Zealand. Most notably from my two favourite Helens! (After Aunty Helen that is!)

Helen Rickerby did a lovely wee review. And so did Helen Heath. Helen H. called it a yummy wee number. Thanks Helen and Helen!

I've also noticed a few other people spreading the news through aggregators and other sites about publishing and writing which is very lovely. We were also lucky enough to get a spot on The Wellingtonista. Thanks guys!

Sales are going well on Trade Me. Better than almost anywhere else. So if you haven't gotten a copy yet and you want one go here.


Review 2

Another lovely review by Meliors Simms, another of the poets in Enamel.
