Happy New Year folks, and welcome to the shiny, sparkling, brand-spanking new blog of Quattro Books! (I can just hear your oohs and ahhs of excitement! Really, you’re too kind…) It’s about time we got one of these rolling – I’ve been sitting on this blog thing for an embarrassingly long time, but I guess it couldn’t hatch until 2012 (or until Quattro’s John Calabro started taunting me of how I’d never ever do this.)
hQ is intended to be a one-stop hub, the “headQuarters” for the latest in Quattro and Quattro author news – and then some. Don’t be surprised to check in (it will be updated on a weekly basis! Another blog for you to bookmark!) and find interviews, rambles, guest blogs, book excerpts, fun videos and other miscellany from the collective mind of Quattro! Swing by for Quattro news and get an earful (er, eye-ful? ) of other literary musings and happenings in Toronto and beyond.
Soon to come will be ‘Wednesday Weigh-In’: weekly reflections on working in the publishing industry from the Assistant Publisher, with guest features of Quattro interns, staff and, if we’re lucky, the publishers themselves. Alliteration begs me to make sure this does get uploaded every Wednesday, so I will try my very best.
So, without further ado, I christen this boat, er, blog, the ‘hQ’!
