Due to a cold, I was out of the office recently, which meant I missed our birthday… Yes, ladies and gentleman, Scorpius Books turned 3 at the start of June,
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.
I was pondering this over the weekend so thought I’d post it for no other reason than it may help someone. Here, for what it’s worth, are some tips for brand new book publishers or booksellers…
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!
Darkness Forbidden has picked up some fine reviews over the last couple of months (of course, we would say that, but hey: judge for yourselves…):
Maybe we should branch out into book holders… hmm. Is there a need for such a thing?
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.
