    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.
