Slow News Day

The interview I did for the Yorkshire Post has finally been printed today. It's a nice interview (software expert :-) ) and has a massive photo on page three of the paper.

The Yorkshire Post is a cross between a local and a national paper and already it's having an effect. I've had two orders today from Yorkshire (which I guess are as a result of the story) and both local radio and TV stations are interested in running the story.

That's a great result as far as I'm concerned, and it may go further yet!

Excellent writeup.

Thanks, Yehuda.

I was very happy with the story, and I'm delighted that it's led to both more press interest and a couple of sales. I've nearly sold out of Border Reivers now, so I can start to concentrate on It's Alive!

Mate, what have they done to your head in that photo?!? I swear they've stretched your forehead to make you look like the archetypal 'boffin'! :)

"Yorkshire's most promising boardgame designer" Wow, good write-up!

I have to agree with Mal though; you do look a bit sinister...

Jack said...

No they didn't modify the photo - I've actually had a brain enhancement operation since you last saw me. Check out 'World's tallest forehead' in the Guinness Book of Records - 30cm!*

Well Done Jack! Haven't read the article myself (unfortunately I don't read the papers much) but will try to find it on the web.

Cheers!

Hiya Hugo,

There's a link in the post to the online version of the story.

Cheers,

Jack

BTW, meant to say "Congratulations!" rather than just joking about your forehead! It's good to see that someone's recognising all of your hard work. Maybe your bank manager will order a copy of It's Alive now too...? :)

I've got three orders now from the paper story, none from the bank yet. But I'll take in a finished copy when I've got one to show my bank manager ;-)

Cheers,

Jack
