Each book we publish has a dedicated page on this site full of extra information.  We’re not a large imprint, but we like to think we are mighty. We publish about 15 books a year, voice-driven fiction and non-fiction – all  great stories told with heart and intelligence. 2018 marks our seventh year of publishing and we couldn’t be prouder of all our wonderful authors on the road so far.

2018 has been a year filled with some truly brilliant books, featuring exciting new voices and some familiar favourites.

New voices . . . The year began with two debut novels: the first from Sarah Haywood, whose prickly protagonist Susan Green charmed us all in The Cactus, and the second Sally Magnusson’s The Sealwoman’s Gift, based on a true incident in 17th century Icelandic history and now a Zoe Ball Book Club pick. Non-fiction highlights include Aaron Gillies’s hilarious (and actually useful) anxiety survival guide, How to Survive the End of the World (when it’s in your own head) and Alice Vinten’s gripping memoir of her time in the Met, On the Line, plus The Sunday Times bestseller Natives by Akala, a searing polemic of race and class in modern Britain . . .

Familiar faces . . . we joined Sir David Attenborough for further adventures in Journeys to the Other Side of the World, while Susan Calman returned with her Calmanifesto of happiness in Sunny Side Up. Author of The Rosie Project Graeme Simsion partnered with wife Anne Buist in a tale of blisters and second chances in Two Steps Forward and Queen of Up-Lit Ruth Hogan published her second novel, The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes . . . 

Coming this autumn . . . look out for Frieda by Annabel Abbs, a beautifully-crafted novel of the woman who inspired Lady Chatterley’s Lover. Join bestselling author Helen Russell on a round-the-world trip through happiness concepts in The Atlas of Happiness, and don’t miss the milestone of cultural history that is Cunk on Everything, aka the definitive guide to everything you’ll ever need to know ever . . . plus, there’s the third instalment of Riad Sattouf’s Arab of  the Future . . .

Looking forward to 2019 . . . the incomparable Ruth Hogan is back with her third novel, Queenie Malone’s Paradise Hotel, a story of family and friendship and hidden secrets. Babita Sharma explores the making of modern Britain in The Corner Shop, plus new novels from Therese Anne Fowler, Peter Hanington and Kirsty Wark . . . watch this space.

Every book we publish is one we want to press into readers’ hands and say, ‘You must read this!’ We hope you feel the same.
