Still selling

easonThe Little Book of Dublin has established itself as a bestseller in Dublin and abroad to both visitors and denizens of the city alike.
It is now like an old friend encountered everywhere in Dublin bookshops.
A friend said: ” There is no bookshop that I go into that I do not find copies of your hardback on sale.”
Long may it continue.
Thank you

Dublin Folk Tales

8728 Dublin FTales CVR.inddSupplies of a reprinted Dublin Folk Tales are with the distributors.

Dublin Folk Tales was the first published of the Irish county folk tales series from The History Press Ireland.

It consistently goes in and out of stock in retailers.

This time, it went out of print. It’s back now and will sell alongside my Little Book of Dublin

When you see it, turn it face out, for the jacket alone sells this book.



Media coverage

Thanks to Dave and all the crew at  PhoenixFM for the chat and interview on the Little Book of Dublin and everything else to do with Dublin and its environs.

News coming in that people who already bought the Little Book of Dublin, and have read it, are passing it along to friends and family members with their commendation.
Long may it continue; the original viral phenomenon: “I read this book, it’s great, here it is for you to read.”
You cannot beat word of mouth among readers for a title to be successful.
I thank you one and all.

Success at last.
The launch of The Little Book of Dublin gets almost a full page of coverage in the Lucan Newsletter
And pictures.
Heady fame.
I thank you.
And my people thank you.

Many thanks to the Liffey Champion for the coverage in this week’s newspaper of the Chapelizod launch of The Little Book of Dublin and its United States launch in September.

Go maith.
