The press releases went out over the last two weeks, and we've had incredible press coverage so far. A huge thank you to authors Amy O'Connor, now living in Cork, and Peg Prendeville, who lives on the Limerick - North Kerry border, for their help in sending out press releases.
An article in the Tipperary Nationalist praised Amy's talents and involvement in 'Lights on the Horizon'. Amy also has a poetry collection called 'A beautiful complexity', which was published in 2019 and is available for purchase here.
Limerick-based Peg Prendeville was featured in the Limerick Leader, as well as the Weekly Observer.
We were also very grateful to be featured in the Irish Tatler Gift Guide (scroll to #85).
This Friday was another busy day, and it turns out Friday 13th wasn't unlucky for us, after all. We had not one but two publications: Jackie Keogh interviewed Niamh in the Southern Star, and Gráinne McGuinness did a feature in The Echo.
The Southern Star was kind enough to feature author Louise O'Neill, who kindly supported Lights on the Horizon with a beautiful endorsement:
Lights on the Horizon’ is a moving, poignant snapshot of life in the middle of a pandemic. This collection of poems, stories, and photos will be something to treasure when we look back at this time in years to come, wondering how we survived.
Further press coverage over the coming weeks will include the Irish Times, interviews on radio, and a mention in the Daily Star Gift guide, which is out on 28th November - the same day 'Lights on the Horizon' will hit bookshops.
If you're a bookshop, or shop of any kind, and want to get involved in selling 'Lights on the Horizon', get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Niamh (Publisher) on: 083 870 6768.
