  • There have indeed been a lot of these annualist books in the past five or six years, concedes Graeme Neill of the Bookseller magazine.

    "Publishing is like any form of the art. Where there has been a success, a hit will come out of nowhere, other publishers will look at it and follow it."

    And there is something about these year-long ideas that entices publishers.

    "It is like pitching a movie in one sentence," says Neill. "It's interesting to talk about and it makes for very readable, straightforward copy."

    –I just had a brilliant idea! I'll read one annualist book a day for a year, blog about it…book deal here I come!
