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 we like to think we are mighty. We publish about 15 books a year,  voice-driven fiction and non-fiction – all strong narrative and great stories with heart and intelligence.

VOICES …  Everyone’s Strictly favourite Susan Calman is back with her second book – The Kindness Quest – she’s on a mission to restore the nation’s kindness and get us all dancing for joy … Aaron Gillies, aka @TechnicalllyRon on twitter, has written a hilarious and actually useful anxiety survival guide, How to Survive the End of the World (When it’s in Your Own Head)…and Akala’s searing social commentary, Natives, examines the state of race and class in Britain today

PLACES… the beautiful Paradise Gardens records Monty Don and Derry Moore’s travels through six countries and some of the world’s most stunning Islamic gardens … Melanie McGrath’s Pie and Mash Down the Roman Road covers a century of life and love in the East End through the windows of G Kelly’s Pie and Mash shop  Walk the Camino with Two Steps Forward, a novel of mid-life and second chances by husband and wife team Graeme Simsion (author of The Rosie Project) and Anne Buist … and look forward to more adventures with Sir David Attenborough this autumn, as Journeys to the Other Side of the World takes us all the way to Australia via Madagascar and New Guinea…
