Author ScorpiusBooks

Happy to support indie…

It’s very nice sometimes to see our books available in places we never knew existed, especially when they are independent bookstores, like Antigone Books in the US. This small little bookstore has been around since 1973 and has recently been… Continue Reading →

Well, it’s official…

I’ve fallen out with Amazon! 

I don’t think it’s hard to tell the difference between an ebook, a paperback and a large-print (dyslexia-friendly) paperback. They all look different, different sizes, etc. The dyslexia edition has a huge sticker on the front stating what it is.

Ah, the joys of progress!…

Armed with coffee and a panini, I had a full diary this morning (along with the added addition of homeschooling) and what do I find as I enter the office?

When Teddy Bears reach new heights…

Two recent pieces of news from Scorpius towers, with our eyes now firmly fixed on 2021’s exciting list…

Can I open just one…?

We had a nice delivery from the printers yesterday of Darkness Forbidden paperback and dyslexia editions… it was like Christmas had come early!
