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.
The pavements have suddenly become carpeted with conkers where I live (among the slushy leaves and crushed acorns), which can only mean one thing… Christmas is on its way! Eeek!
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…
Phew, that’s Marketing Week over and done for another month! I think I’ve drunk enough coffee to sink a ship!
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?
Sometimes I sit here in the office, staring out the window at the horizon (I think it’s called procrastinating!), fighting against Imposter Syndrome…
