Dear Subscriber

Welcome to our September 2008 newsletter 25. Below are three items:
1. Fresh Light on Dumyat
2. Loyalty discount
3. The Cowal Way

Reminder 1: if you see yellow tabs above, such as Scotland, Ireland and Worldwide, you can click them: we hope you find this useful.

Reminder 2: should you wish to unsubscribe for any reason: visit or scroll down to click the Unsubscribe link at the foot of this email. We don't want to lose you, but we deffo don't want to impose on you.

1. Fresh Light on Dumyat

We are delighted to announce a fresh edition of Rennie McOwan's wonderful adventure novel for children Light on Dumyat.

It's being launched on Friday 19 September, but we are releasing it in advance. This classic story has new relevance in an era when many children seem overprotected and lack self-reliance. You'll find extracts on our web pages, together with reviews of previous editions. At only £6.99, it makes an ideal gift for anybody with reading age 9 years and upward.

2. Loyalty discount

We've decided to recognise the loyalty with which some of you have supported our maverick publshing enterprise over the years. The new loyalty scheme, unlike any previous discount, requires no minimum spend. It gives you 10% off all our books, for ever. If you have bought at least three books direct from, or if you have given us valued feedback for a new edition, or if you have posted on our forums several times, or any plausible combination of these, please just ask us for the code. Don't be shy, we'd really love to hear from you!

To claim your discount code, please email with Loyalty in the subject line. Once you have this code, enter it at step 2 whenever you order. Remember, p&p is free in UK with no minimum spend, and this is a permanent offer, valid even if you're reading an archive version of this newsletter.

3. The Cowal Way

In July I revisited Cowal, to discuss a possible 2009 guidebook to cover this wonderful walk in the rugged Cowal peninsula. It's accessible from Glasgow, and runs 57 miles (92 km) from Portavadie to Inveruglas. You probably haven't heard of either place (blink and you'd miss them), but when you find that direct ferries link the Cowal Way with both the Kintyre Way and the West Highland Way, it all starts to fall into place. Here's the missing link that could create the ultimate long-distance walk: Mull of Kintyre to Inverness via Kintyre, Cowal, West Highland and Great Glen Ways anybody??! Anyway, we will soon be announcing our Cowal Way guidebook. Meantime, you can click the link for a sneak preview.

With best wishes from the team at Rucksack Readers, and thanks for reading
