Tag Frankfurt Book Fair

Another year, another Frankfurt Book Fair and Lisa, our indefatigable Publisher, was once again in Germany spending her days walking up and down the halls of the Fair, meeting agents and  foreign editors.

She did have time to snap a few pictures though, so here’s an insider’s view of the Fair, just for you guys!

The Hachette stand at the Frankfurt Book Fair: lots of busy book people around

 

 

Can you spot the cover of SOIL, a brand new novel coming from Two Roads in 2015?

 

 

A quick stop at a (very German) food truck: editors need their energy!

In the run-up to Frankfurt, most book editors are swamped with manuscripts and agents trying to close a deal quickly to make an announcement at Frankfurt. Getting lots of manuscripts isn’t necessarily a bad thing, the opposite being too awful to contemplate…getting the time to devote oneself is the difficult bit. I’ve often thought the answer is to go to a book retreat for a week.

It could be variously furnished to accommodate modes of reading: iPads, eReaders, Kindles, old fashioned double- sided print outs, profligate single sided photocopies (my personal eco-sin) to be read on: sofas, myriad cushions, armchairs, hard upright chairs, floors, beds, desks with endless tea/coffee/biscuits (plain digestives please) fruit of a non drippy kind.

Personally, no distracting music, but this is a book spa so others may not feel this way. Not that other editors (all reading the same manuscripts and stealing my digestives) desirable.

Will have to ponder the viability of this idea.
