GGBP have announced Top Secret and Antonia Forest’s The Attic Term on their website. They will be published in late February 2022.

There’s an interesting article by Liz Filleul about GGBP in the current issue (Nov 6) of People’s Friend.

I read the article. It’s nice for GGBP to have an article for their 20th anniversary. Clarissa says that when they started GGBP they had no business plan and did none of the things they should have done. Interestingly I think that is nearly always the way with successful businesses and successful business people. The people with an elaborate detailed business plan don’t actually manage to even start the business a lot of the time as they’re waiting for everything to be perfect whereas people with no business plan who just go ahead and start the business without waiting for everything to be perfect are generally much more successful. Ann and Clarissa really are two in seven billion. I don’t know how they manage to run GGBP in addition to everything else they have going on. They both have health problems and Clarissa has another full time job. She has just taken on another parish at her own suggestion. I always think they don’t realise how marvellous they are.

Yes, it's great what GGBP do in reprinting the CS and many other books/series. If they have that much going on (and health problems), perhaps it is totally unfair to criticise them, as I have done in the past, for not doing ebooks.
