I was recently asked by UCAS if they could distribute my latest book Going to University: the Secrets of Success and I felt extremely flattered. I confess I had always thought of UCAS for university entrance and the clearing house process rather than for them maintaining an online catalogue of books they like and handle + a catalogue that goes out to, I was told, over 8,000 establishments.
I hope that this will spread the word about the book. It seems just about impossible to get reviews in the press unless one is already a name or perhaps knows some journalist personally!
I have sent off the first consignment to UCAS and am now sitting with my fingers crossed.
Ah! Here's the URL for the UCAS online catalogue:
UPDATE JULY 2010: Prospects Educational Resources, who supply a lot of schools, have also asked to handle it for me. Double yay! And UCAS have got back for another 80 copies. I shall go and open a beer......
