Someone asked me how we came to be called Scorpius Books the other day and it has quite a simple answer really.
I’ve been up to my eyebrows in tasks this week, what with it being the end of the month and all. Marketing, editing, emails, reviews, printers, distributors… phew.
A while ago, Writing.ie featured a guest blog post by us here at Scorpius on our dyslexia-friendly editions and the feedback we had from that was amazing.
‘ve been clearing out the office lately (trying to get some more organised storage in here) and in a box of random personal bits and bobs, I found one of those ‘name meaning’ cards I must have had for years and completely forgot I had.
…it provides a great balance between the satisfaction of long term planning and short term delights. I love planning (I’m a bit of a nerd like that and I’ve made my peace with it!).
…This is one of our favourite things. Retribution Darkened arrived from our new printers this morning after a painful process of removing it from the system of our old ‘they who shall not be named’ printers, who, quite frankly, were awful!
Well, we’re back in the office and raring to go! There’s something refreshing about a new year and a new start – I’m not one for resolutions (does anyone keep those beyond two weeks?), but I do like to set goals and work towards them (which hasn’t been easy during a pandemic!), so here’s hoping 2022 helps me meet a few more of these:
Since Ebay decided it was aparently a security risk letting us sell our books on their site (don’t ask!), we’ve joined forces with two new online marketplaces, EbuyGum and Swipegreen.
I’m having a cheeky day off today (much needed after being a little run down lately), and decided to get in to the Halloween spirit a little early with a spooky re-read.
