Regular readers here at TNPS know it’s not uncommon for TNPS to miss a day or two due to erratic internet connectivity here in West Africa, but this month the disappearing act was a little longer than usual, hence this brief explanation.
Malaria is a major contributor to mortality rates across the continent, and while most cases are not too serious, my third bout with the mosquito-carried parasite was far more severe than the previous two, but self-evidently not as bad as it might have been.
Thankfully I’m now in latter-stage recuperation and back at the desk, such as it is, and eager to catch up on what the industry has been up to while I was laid up, semi-comatose and had no internet access.
Thanks to everyone who reached out privately or on social media to see if all was okay as the TNPS radio-silence went beyond the expected internet downtime. I’m still working the backlog of personal and industry-related emails and will respond to all this coming week.
Expect TNPS to resume its normal coverage of the global publishing industry from tomorrow, if the internet gods are willing.
Best wishes for your recovery!
I had noticed that you were absent and hoped you were well.
I enjoy reading TNPS and share your posts often on my blog. Supply chain problems and Covid have reinforced that we live in a small global world. You are doing great work!
Much appreciated, Maureen!
