What we do for authors

BLOCKBUSTER OR BUSINESS BOOK: We’re happy to stick a hopefully helpful oar in at any stage so, whether you’re thinking of dipping a cautious toe or planning to plunge headlong into the literary pool any time soon, call and have a chat.

FACT OR FICTION, BUSINESS OR BEST-SELLER: We can help with editing, shaping, sharpening up, proofing and offering constructive criticism and there’s nothing we love more than getting involved in a book project.

. . . AND IN CASE YOU’RE WONDERING, yes, we have also trodden the bumpy path to publication and have the scars and tee-shirt to prove it.

“Beautifully written, this book will grab readers on a visceral level. Stella is both heroine, victim and villain, and one of the most compelling characters I have encountered in some time.”

For the Love of Books

“With the author’s deadpan humour and observational wit, I read this book with a huge smile on my face, eagerly following Stella through her various exploits. A truly fabulous series which I hope has at least one more book to come, I need to know what happens next! 5 stars.”

Tracy Fenton. TBC Founder

“Imagine a John Wyndham character strayed into a Val McDermid novel, to get an idea of these quirky books. Unusual and compelling. If you want to try something a bit different, I’d really recommend.”
