Well it's no secret, but I feel a lot better admitting to it now I'm back from holiday and the first draft is safely in!
In a nod to convergence, Ash Rattan of Searching Finance, the economics and finance publisher, first got in touch via Twitter to suggest we meet in a more traditional publishers' forum in July. And, ready as I was to indulge in a traditional West End literary lunch that spilt late into the afternoon, I was equally impressed that our discussions required nothing stronger than coffee and that agreement was reached within a few weeks.
I could be wrong, but somehow I doubt an agent and several belts of the Bordeaux would've helped much in that process.
Anyhow, it seems fitting that the book of the Pragmatist blog should be published not only by someone who publishes an array of people for whom I have a great deal of respect, but who also disintermediates a few links in the supply chain along the way.
I hope you will enjoy the read in due course.
