Shiny New Books is LIVE!

The four editors (Annabel, Victoria, Harriet, and me) have just had our final Skype conversation, playing around with menus and links to reveal all the pages that lay hidden on the Shiny New Books site, and (enormous drum roll please) SHINY NEW BOOKS IS NOW LIVE!

Please head on over and start to enjoy!  You don’t have to read it all in one go, of course – we’re hoping it’ll be the equivalent of the quarterly review magazine in print – that you dip in now and then over the course of three months (although we will have updates before the next issue in full).

I hate to sound like an overly proud parent, but we really are proud of it.  It’s been such fun putting it together, as well as quite a lot of hard work, but all our discussions about the logo and the site and… everything – they definitely all feel worth it now.

Over the coming weeks I’ll be linking to some of the reviews, particularly the ones I’ve written which qualify for A Century of Books (!) so I hope that’s ok with everyone.  First things first, I’ll mention that there’s a competition in the first issue (on the homepage) which I’d love to enter if I could…

If you wrote for us, or sent us a book which we’ve reviewed, we’ll be in touch as soon as we can be – and we’d love to hear from other bloggers who’d like to write for us (see our Review For Us page).  For now, I’m off to work… and I hope you enjoy it all!
