Good to see another fresh through the Maitai just prior to Easter. It's been opportune the way the rain has come this year, keeping the river clean and clear flowing for us all to swim over summer...and that includes the dogs and the koura!
Having Booker long-lister Anna Smaill on our Page & Blackmore Readers and Writers' programme is the cherry on the cake.

Great to see the Marlborough Book Festival notching up from last year with ten great sessions at some of Marlborough's loveliest wineries.
Good outcome - we do the media work for the Brook - and those are my grandchildren, on the left.
Recent media stats make interesting reading. The year's newspaper stats show an industry in freefall (Waikato Times down 17%) - while a Herald story on Radio NZ's drop off in listeners also shows 25% of people aged over 15 don't listen to any radio and half of young males aged 15-24 years don't listen to the radio at all. Peter Sinclair will be rotating - in his grave. Shows us you've got to be canny in getting your message out there, and you know where to go for help with that!
NIce to get some thanks from a client.

Grahame Sydney Paintings 1974 - 2014. This stunning book will be fresh off the press from Craig Potton Publishing just in time for Page & Blackmore Readers and Writers. Grahame will be in conversation with publisher Robbie Burton. This is our top seller after Elenor Catton. So make sure you get your tickets before the earlybird price ends on Sunday.
The bets are on as to how long Eleanor Catton’s session at the Nelson arts festival will take to sell out. She heads a line up that also includes Grahame Sydney, Tim Wilson and Sarah-Kate Lynch. More at www.nelsonartsfestival.co.nz
