  • Who is the Doctor wins Silver Medal!
  • imageAnd now for some news I’m really proud to share. Who is the Doctor has won a Silver Medal in the Independent Publisher Book Awards!

    You can see the results on the Independent Publisher website. We’re in the “Popular Culture and Leisure” category (that’s Category number 62, a long way down…). We lost out to a book about Michael Jackson and a book about Batman. I don’t know what that says about the state of popular culture or not. It’s a real amazing honour: 2500 books were entered and only 300 odd books were awarded.

    I wasn’t aware we were nominated for this (the kind folks at ECW press nominated us; our fellow ECW books Fifty Sides of the Beach Boys: The Songs that Tell Their Story and Walking Into The Ocean also won) so this is kind of like finding a winning lottery ticket on the ground. It’s wonderful, wonderful news.

    Best of all we actually get a real medal! Sadly I won’t be able to go to New York for the ceremony, but when it comes in the mail, I’ll show a picture of us wearing ours!
