Since our blog has been kind of quiet, I thought I would take this opportunity to fill you in on what Manda's been up to in the new year! We've started off 2012 with lots of new catalogues and books rolling in, which is always exciting! You can view a full list of the wonderful publishers we represent and their latest catalogues here.

On my lunches I've been perusing The Walking Dead graphic novels from Diamond Book Distributors. These are a great holdover while I wait for Walking Dead season 2 to continue on TV. My bedtime reading currently consists of Paul Torday's The Hopeless Life of Charlie Summers from Orion Publishing, a great read from the author of Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.

Ellen Warwick has been anxiously preparing our exhibit at the CGTA for the end of January. She is currently reading Greyhound of a Girl, written by Roddy Doyle, from Abrams Books. This book is about a 12-year-old girl who is coping with her dying grandmother, a mystifying read for any adolescent who has lost a love one.

Mark Wilson is excited about the January release of The Knowland Retribution, a first in a series, it is available in Canada through Ingram Publisher Services. This book inspired a new Fox TV show, The Finder, which is a spinoff of the popular show Bones. The new show starts this Thursday (Jan 12th, 9pm on Global) so if you're one of those people that must read the book before seeing the movie/show - run out and get it now!
