We were the 1st trade publisher in the UK to produce dyslexic-friendly fiction for adults (there’s many indie authors out there doing it already which is brilliant! ).
I don’t say that we’re the 1st to show off or to wave my hands in the air saying ‘look at me!’, but to highlight the issue that publishing has a very long way to go to be truly inclusive and accessible.
This post is to thank all those authors who so kindly think of Scorpius Books when looking for a publisher to submit to. We have to apologise…
Well I wasn’t expecting that! I’ve been invited to speak at the Bookseller’s Futurebook conference in November about our dyslexic-friendly books!
More dyslexia friendly books heading off from the printer to their new homes (both bookstores and readers alike). We’re on a roll, ladies and gentleman!
Having fried my brain during marketing week, I just wanted to shout out a huge thank you to all those individuals and bookstores who ordered our books over the last month, from ebooks to our dyslexia…
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:
