The Deixis Press Weekly - Issue #50
Fifty issues! FIFTY. I mean, ok, yeah, there should be a lot more than fifty since this is apparently a “weekly” newsletter, but for someone who is often not, *ahem*, the epitome of a completer-finisher, that’s not bad.
I can’t stay long, friends. Just hopping into your inbox to say three things:

Have you listened to Your Most Avid Reader yet?! It is SO GOOD—and, if like me you’ve got a short little span of attention, you’ll be delighted by the tasty little bite-sized episodes. HERE IS EPISODE ONE; no more excuses, now:
Nutsford House have announced their Residential Tutored Writing Retreat, held from September 12th to 17th, 2023. Imagine writing your next masterpiece nestled in a beautiful 1920s house on the edge of the scenic Exmoor National Park—the perfect serene and rural location for all your creative musings.
The retreat will be run by Alice Little - an accomplished author, Oxford University tutor, and former Writer in Residence at Wytham Woods, near Oxford. Prices are set at £695 for your own private room or £595 for a shared twin room, and the retreat is fully catered. More info here!
I’m telling you about this because I know James and Amanda (who run Nutsford House) very well, and they are absolutely lovely and, crucially, not a couple of psychotic weirdos trying to lure authors to a remote location where nobody can hear you scream. PLEASE PASS THIS INFO ON TO YOUR AUTHOR FRIENDS (you can leave this whole paragraph out)
3. WHAT WE LEAVE BEHIND is out tomorrow!
To celebrate, on the press website I’m running a deal where you can buy any two books and get £2 off your order. Use the code TWOBOOKS at checkout and let the magic unfold. Yes, you read it right. That's any two of our books (but if you want this discount on, say, 4 or 6 or 8 books, you’ll need to do multiple orders, I’m afraid). Now, I’m not saying this will work on merchandise, but feel free to try if you're feeling a bit cheeky.
Right, back to the salt mines,
and oh your nights are so long
I literally have no idea
