Here at Bloomsbury we are in the midst of open call madness. To date, we’ve received about 50 proposals but judging from the 2012 open call, almost 80% of the proposals come in during the last 48 hours before the deadline. You’ve got less than 1 week until the March 3rd deadline. I love what I see so far.
-This week we’re sending Ethan Hayden’s brilliant treatise on language and communication disguised as a 33 1/3 on Sigur Ros off to production. We’ll publish “Sigur Ros’s ( )” in late august.
-Advance copies have just come in for Liz Phair’s Exile in Guyville…so look for lots of coverage on that leading up to its May publication. Pre-order here.
-March 13th marks the publication of the expanded edition of Carl Wilson’s 33 1/3 on Celine Dion. It’s called “Let’s Talk About Love: Why Other People Have Such Bad Taste,” you can pre-order here.
-Bloomsbury will be at the International Association for the Study of Popular Music from March 13-16 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Come say hi.
-Check out the February issue of the Believer magazine…we’ve got a nice ad inside the back cover.
