Moose on Radio 2

Last night was a first for Bluemoose Books and author Mark Radcliffe as his new book, GABRIEL'S ANGEL got a two minute slot on the Maconie and Radcliffe Show on BBC Radio 2, Monday 14th June 2010. For an indie publisher and first time author to get any coverage on a radio is great, but to break through onto the national radio airwaves means we're getting the message that we're publishing great books that engage and inspire the reader to a bigger audience. Stuff like this happens all the time for the supposed big metropolitan publishing houses, but for indies like Bluemoose its a brilliant platform. And we thank those who had enough vision to see what a great book it is.
Mark will be appearing on more radio after the publication of GABRIEL'S ANGEL on July 24th 2010. Will update you as and when.

He will be signing and reading from GABRIEL'S ANGEL at the following Waterstones.

The award winning author Christopher Brookmyre has said some wonderful things about Mark's book.

'I thoroughly enjoyed reading Gabriel's Angel. I thought it was seductively melancholy without being miserable, its philosophical deceit leavened with a delicately measured humour and its characters - both in this world and the next - as engagingly flawed as they were tenderly wrought.'

Here's the quote for the jacket.

' You might think you'd rather die than go through therapy, but what if death was no escape? Gabriel's Angel is the perfect antidote to the glib platitudes of emotional quick-fix culture: tender, astute and very funny.' Christopher Brookmyre

Enough said. Until tomorrow.
