Thank you for visiting.   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. 2019 marks our eighth year of publishing and we couldn’t be prouder of all our wonderful authors on the road so far.

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.

Stories . . . Ruth Hogan’s third novel, Queenie Malone’s Paradise Hotel, is an uplifting story filled with the magic of friendship and long-hidden secrets . . . William Carver returns to his trickiest story yet in Peter Hanington’s second novel A Single Sourceset in the midst of the Arab Spring . . .

Voices . . . there’s something infinitely soothing about a Gretchen Rubin book, and her latest, Outer Order Inner Calm, is no exception – it will help you declutter and organise to make more room for happiness . . . Janet Ellis is back with How It Was, a darkly compelling novel in which 1970s nostalgia clashes with suburban ennui . . .

Places . . . Kirsty Wark has written another brilliantly atmospheric novel, this time set on the shores of Loch Doon – watch out for The House by the Loch this June . . . the nation’s favourite gardener Monty Don and renowned photographer Derry Moore, the duo behind the highly acclaimed Paradise Gardens, are back with a moving, very personal exploration of the finest Japanese Gardens . . . 

Lives . . . Therese Anne Fowler paints a glittering portrait of Gilded Age New York in A Well-Behaved Womanthe story of Alva Vanderbilt, social climbing and excess . . . Babita Sharma explores the making of modern Britain in The Corner Shop . . . 

Looking ahead to 2020 . . . there’s so much to look forward to!
