Transworld has partnered with the Sun to host the first Jack Reacher Week, promoting books featuring the character by Lee Child.
The partnership will see coverage in the Sun newspaper and online on its website, with the editorial and promotional campaign running next week (6th to 11th July). Coverage will include a major interview with Child, additional features based around the 19 Reacher books, and a review of the Jack Reacher back catalogue.

Stanfords relaunched the Dolman Travel Book of the Year prize under a new name this year, doubling its prize money to £5,000, and also creating a new award for travel writing.
