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.
…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:
Phew, what with lockdowns and school holidays, we were a little MIA for a while there! Did you miss us?
We’ve recently set up a new store on Click it Local, a great online resource that brings the high street to you!
It’s official… they’re nearly here! Our next two titles are due for release over the next couple of weeks and we can’t wait to release them out into the world!
Yippee! We are now being stocked by The Great British Bookshop, a lovely online bookstore where you can now find our dyslexia-friendly titles, with more to follow.
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. Waterstones and other bookstores have managed to tell the editions apart and list them successfully… so what is it that Amazon finds so tricky to fathom?
