Rainbow Awards

To our great astonishment - we thought they were due next weekend! - the Rainbow Awards have been announced today. The competition was clearly pretty tough this time, but nevertheless Manifold Press has taken three Honourable Mentions in the One Perfect Score category - for the following books:

Chris Quinton: FOX HUNT

Congratulations to all three authors; clearly all your hard work paid off in the end!

Statistics for November

Our best-selling author for November was Jane Elliot, with THE DEVIL IN DEAD HORSE galloping ahead merrily on the Press website and ABOVE ALL - uh, 'above all' our other books on the distribution sites.

We're a little disappointed not to have seen any reviews of our new titles so far, but clearly this is a very busy time of year for people, and it's not all that easy to find the time to sit down and read a book, so we'll try our hardest to be patient.

Meanwhile, the annual Rainbow Awards will be announced next weekend; we did rather well in them last year and we're hoping that something similar may occur this time - fingers crossed.

Our average response time during November was respectable enough at four hours and 46 minutes. In fact only one order took longer than 12 hours to fill, which was due to a temporary computer glitch at our end, so on the whole we think we're doing fairly well!
