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.

We do what with submissions…?

There’s been a flurry of submissions this week from hopeful writers, which is always lovely to see and gives us a warm feeling that an author would entrust our little company with their pride and joy. It’s why we try and do things differently…

Being small isn’t so bad…
