Welcome to Two Roads & Happy New Year

2016 is an exciting one for Two Roads. We’ll be five years old this year (which must mean some kind of book anniversary, but we’re not sure what) and it seems like a minute ago we were just starting out; what a great time we’ve had so far.  

2016 is also another big year for our publishing with some terrific débuts and new directions for us.  In the first few months in fiction we’re publishing three extraordinary débuts. In January, Guinevere Glasfurd’s  The Words in My Hand – a truly beautiful novel set in 17th century Amsterdam. In February, Janet Ellis’ The Butcher’s Hook – a dark tale of Georgian London and in April Peter Hanington’s A Dying Breed – a contemporary suspense novel set in the compromised world of news reporting. Three extraordinary stories from three new talents.

We’re also looking forward to publishing some great non fiction. In April we’ll publish the first volume in Riad Sattouf‘s award-winning graphic memoir The Arab of the Future. In May, the heartwarming story of Arthur – the dog who crossed the jungle to find a home by Mikael Lindnord is sure to appeal to dog lovers everywhere. Also in May, comedian and writer Susan Calman‘s terrific account of living with depression, Cheer Up Love.  Just a few of our highlights that we’re proud to be publishing. Follow the links to find out more.

This website is where you can discover our writers and learn more about their work and what we do; each book we publish has a dedicated page (click the drop-down menu on the toolbar above) full of extra information.  We’re not a large imprint, but I like to think we are mighty. We publish about 10-12 books a year, both fiction and voice-driven non-fiction – all strong narrative and great stories with heart and intelligence.

And yes, there is other stuff. You can go behind the scenes by reading our blog; interact directly with us on Facebook, Twitter , Instagram and Pinterest; and sign up to our newsletter on the right-hand side of this page for even more news, advance reading copies, giveaways and competitions.

But, most importantly, we hope that whenever you come across a Two Roads title you’ll recognise our love for  stories… voices… places… lives… and discover a page-turning book you love reading and want to recommend to your friends. It’s what we believe makes Two Roads truly special; we hope you enjoy what you find here.

Lisa Highton,

Publisher
