A second impression of De Batavier was ordered from the printers on October 14. Of the first impression a limited number of copies are still available from booksellers.
By now several book reviews of De Batavier (The Batavian in Dutch) have been published. These are listed on the blog: http://tedpoletbooks.blogspot.com/. Even though the last two book presentations weren't well attended due to the holiday season, and the last one being thwarted by very hot weather and a large festival in town, there is excellent news. My publisher has received a big order for 115 copies of De Batavier, from
NBD Biblion, the main procuring agency for Public Libraries in Holland. By now about 85% of the first impression has therefore been sold within five months of its publication.
I have been interviewed by a local newspaper, Leidsch Dagblad. Publication was on April 24th (click for image).
Another presentation of De Batavier took place on April 13, 2019, at De Kler booksellers, Breestraat, Leiden.
De Batavier was published on 16 March 2019 and formally launched on 23 March 2019, in the presence of dozens of people.
Formal launch of De Batavier: 23 March 2019.
Lecture and book signing, De Kler Booksellers, Leiden, 13 April, see agenda on homepage.
