What’s in a name?

Someone asked me how we came to be called Scorpius Books the other day and it has quite a simple answer really.

So many things…

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.

Did you miss it?

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.

Who knew?

‘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.

I love publishing because…

…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!).

Brown paper packages tied up with string…

…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!

Happy New Year!

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:

New places to shop…

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.

Those bears are back!!

Yay… the third outing for those loveable bears is out today!

It’s nearly here!

Only one week to go until The Boffee Bears to the Rescue, the 3rd adventure in the series, is released!
