Arcane Publishing was at The Secret Vintage Fair at Colchester Castle last Saturday. It was the first time I Am a Muse was made available to the public at the special price of £6 (instead of £7.99) and this was pre-publication!
Arcane Publishing was sharing a stall with Matt ArtPix, Arcane Publishing's very own in-house designer!
We are thinking about keeping this discount for all the events we will be attending.
Granted, people don't go to a vintage fair to buy books. But these events are well attended - this particular fair was a massive success and the venerable castle was absolutely packed! - and are an ideal place to do a bit of advertising - and we think the book fits well with the vintage and handmade ethic. Constance Blackwell's The Pleasure Gardens is a club night that pays tribute to vintage!
The Book of Thoth will be even better for these types of events - set in the 20s, with time travelling, Victorian jewellery, a manor house full of history, alchemy labs and strange antiques...
So... The fair... Quite a few people read the poster, some others picked up a flyer, a few took a flyer away with them, some others put the one they were looking at back on the table when I told them they were free and they could keep them... Thank you to the people who were brave enough to buy the book!
Please do send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org!
I will add a review/feedback page on the Arcane and Miss Gish website as soon as I get anything to put on there...
So what's next?
We are looking at getting payments via paypal. We will put the details on the PURCHASING OUR BOOKS page on this very website very soon.
Then from 15th April, I Am a Muse will be available to buy from The Book Inn in Leigh-on-Sea. I will be trying to get the book into a few other bookshops, but it will take time... We are working on it!
Arcane Publishing will be attending a few more events in the forthcoming months, sharing a stand with Matt ArtPix. We will post more details about these on this blog and on the PURCHASING OUR BOOKS page.
Arcane Publishing is a small independent imprint with a passion for beautiful books.
