Marketing Your Editing & Proofreading Business
Marketing Your Editing & Proofreading Business
by Louise Harnby
Edition: Paperback

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Everything the modern proofreader or editor needs to know about marketing!, 7 May 2014
Louise Harnby is a highly experienced proofreader with a strong background in publishing and also marketing. She is also an engaging writer with a friendly, inviting style that will draw you in rather than scare you off – which is important because this book is quite long considering it focuses on one aspect of being a freelancer (longer than her previous book, in fact, which was more of a general introduction to running an editorial business). Marketing Your Editing & Proofreading Business is jam-packed with invaluable insights from Louise and her colleagues – read it, apply it to your own editorial business and you won't go far wrong!


Crap Dad Jokes
Crap Dad Jokes
by Ian Allen
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better jokes than the first book!, 4 May 2014
This review is from: Crap Dad Jokes (Hardcover)
I've bought both of Ian Allen's joke books, and in my view this one has far funnier jokes than the first one, The VERY Embarrassing Book of Dad Jokes. That one has loads of really old jokes in it, which is fine as that's what it advertises itself as, but for me Crap Dad Jokes actually has some superb jokes in it that a) you won't have heard before and b) are laugh-out-loud hilarious. So whereas both books have self-deprecating titles and forewords, and both have lots of painfully bad jokes in them, Crap Dad Jokes is actually a genuinely good joke book on the whole - I'd say it's on a par with The Biggest Ever Tim Vine Joke Book and Peter Serafinowicz' Billion Jokes Vol. 1 - at least in terms of value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little earphones - better than the new in-the-ear style!, 2 Oct 2009
These earphones are brilliant - like all Sennheiser earphones they are built to last, and the sound is superb. Personally I prefer these old-school style earphones to the new Sennheiser ones that go right in your ear. They feel less claustrophobic, and it's not always a good thing to be able to hear absolutely nothing else around you - like when you're crossing roads!

These earphones are really cheap on Amazon too, so take my advice and buy these bad boys - you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars MASTERPIECE, 26 Sep 2004
This review is from: Flashlight Seasons (Audio CD)
This is the finest album I have heard this year. A mate of mine saw them live in London last year and told me I had to see them, the songs are so intense and beautiful on this record and I can only imagine how good it sounds when played in a cosy venue. It would probably cease to be that cosy, actually. The beauty of Nick Talbot's lyrics stems its preoccupation with darkness and death- it really does, as another reviewer stated below, conjure images of bare trees and dead birds. The music is stark, stripped down acoustic folk with one of the most original accompanying voices I've ever witnessed. The overall result is wintery, melancholic and deeply haunting. I have to catch them live, I HAVE TO!!!
Buy this album immediately, you won't regret it. Congrats to Warp Records for signing something so different, too!
