A PLACE CALLED WINTER in Bestseller List
April 2, 2015
There were celebrations at Tinder Press HQ this week as it was announced that the delightful Patrick Gale had hit the Sunday Times bestseller list with his first full historical novel, A Place Called Winter. A stonking publicity campaign organised by our very own Georgina Moore saw Patrick whisked around London for the entirety of the week, leading on to a programme of events that will number 50 by the time the campaign is over.
Tinder Press was incredibly proud to be able to publish its first of Patrick’s novels, especially one that has provoked people’s emotions quite so strongly. Reviews such as ‘his most powerfully moving novel yet’ (Independent), ‘utterly heartwrenching’ (Sunday Mirror) and ‘the overwhelming emotion in this fine book is one of tender, life-affirming joy’ (Sunday Express) reveal the strength of feeling that Harry Cane’s journey of self-discovery incites in readers.
A generous gift of Camel Valley sparkling wine, freshly delivered from Cornwall by the author, came in very handy and needless to say, didn’t last long. Three cheers, Mr Gale.
