Many in the publishing industry fear that electronic media are threatening to replace printed books. A recent post on The Literary Project illustrates how, by working together, new media can offer valuable support to traditional books and even help promote their sales.
According to Gemma Noon of The Literary Project, 'You have to love twitter. Less than an hour after I sent out a random tweet along the lines of 'anyone know a debut crime novelist who might like to be interviewed?' than a couple of people tweet back Leigh Russell's name at me.'
You can read the interview that came about as a result of those tweets on http://theliteraryproject.blogspot.com/ on March 19th.

More exciting news - Recently helenmhunt of Bookersatz kindly sent me some interview questions and that interview can be seen on Helen's own blog Fiction is Stranger than Fact
And as if that's not enough excitement for one week, here is a photo a reader sent me from Kinokuniya, a bookshop in Bangkok, where she bought a copy of CUT SHORT. I hope you enjoy reading it, JJ, and thank you for the pictures!
