My book Trains, Tunnels, Bridges: Icons of Our New Zealand Rail History is No. 3 on the Whitcoulls New Zealand non-fiction top seller list this month. Cool.
It’s one of two books of mine released in the last six weeks. Bee Dawson’s book The New Zealand Woman is No. 1 on the same list, and good on her. I met Bee a few years back at a Random House publisher party, and she’s an excellent writer.
That No.3 spot for Trains joins the general profile that my other new title, the Bateman Illustrated History of New Zealand, has been getting in the stores.
Needless to say, I’m rather pleased by this news.
