Happy New Year!

Ahhh, 2009!
I hope everyone has had a great holiday and peaceful New Year. As you'll have read on Paul's last blog, there's been a few changes going on at Tonto Towers in recent weeks. Never fear... it is business as usual. Tonto continues and will still be publishing, will still be looking for authors, will still be promoting existing authors. Paul and I will no doubt still be working together from time to time on various projects.
So really, it isn't quite like when The Jam split in 1982, or as shocking as when Whitey left the Paul Weller line up last year.

And just to keep spirits up - there's going to be a party! Not just one in fact, but two in one! On Thursday January 29, 7pm, we'll be having a double launch party for Nik Jones and Sarah Shaw with '9987' and 'Make It Back' respectively. Regular blog readers will know that Nik and Sarah were the winners of our New Novelists competition last year. Nik was mentored by Caroline Smailes and Sarah by Wendy Robertson.
The books are officially released on 19 January.

The launch will be held at the Opera Bar in The Gate, Newcastle. There will be an opportunity to meet the authors and get books signed on the night (and importantly, everyone will be able to buy Paul that farewell drink they promised).

Look forward to seeing you all there.
