Noir Publishing hit the news again this month with both regional and national press coverage in The Hereford Times newspaper (issue dated Thursday November 2nd 2006) and The Bookseller magazine (issue dated 10th November 2006). Both featured the signing of worldwide TV star Austin J Stevens with "The Last Snake Man" due to be published May 2007. Publishing News magazine is due to complete a trio of news coverage in the coming month.
Dont' call me "shorty" hissed Sheila - well, you wouldn't would you if the Sheila in question is a 16 feet long Burmese python ready for feeding time! Anyway, thanks to some fine wrangling from Tom Wheeler & guys at Rainforest Reptiles in Hazelfield Garden World, Newent, Noir Publishing lived to fight another day. The reason for all this madness? Why, promoting the signature of one Austin J Stevens, intrepid wildlife explorer, adventurer and star of recent Channel 5 TV series, ready to unleash "The Last Snake Man" upon our shores in May 2007. This lavish coffee table book will include details of Austin's many adventures over the years, as well as dispelling some of the mystique that surrounds the reptile kingdom. With photographs culled from some 600 images taken through the Stevens' lens, this will be a must for all extreme wildlife, animal and reptile lovers everywhere.
Look out for regular updates on both the book's progress and that of Austin himself, currently somewhere on expedition in Borneo - gee that guy gets around !
