In The Black

by admin - 23:37 on 22 July 2011

It's taken a while, but today a significant milestone was reached. The Bumper Book of Black Isle Snappery is in profit. Whoopee!

Almost 750 copies have flown off the shelves since the first was sold four months ago – something we might have managed even more quickly without the Norman-inspired dramas.

We've been ahead twice before, after selling out our first two small print runs, but immediately ploughed the takings back into more books. Now we owe nothing, even to ourselves, for a handful of sales this morning took our income past the magic mark where we could recover our start-up stake. There's even a few pounds left in the kitty.

Even better, we've more cash to collect and 650 Bumper Books still to sell. So don't be shy – Christmas isn't far away and they make the perfect present.

Pine Marten Update: No sightings for three days. She's a tease.

Can I add a bit in?

Thanks to everyone who had gone out and purchased a book and to all the outlets who have helped us sell this amazing amount of books. We very much appreciate it. To those of you who have yet to buy a copy...

What are you waiting for?
