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.

I love publishing because…

…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!).

Brown paper packages tied up with string…

…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!

Happy New Year!

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:

Aaannd we’re back…!

Phew, what with lockdowns and school holidays, we were a little MIA for a while there! Did you miss us? 

When scorpius rules the world…

Sometimes we sit around poking at the holes in our socks, dreaming of the day when we earn a living wage and can afford giant ads on the sides of London buses…

Well, it’s official…

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?

Doing things differently…

A huge thank you to writing.ie for featuring our guest article on our dyslexia-friendly titles. This amazing site for writers and readers is a veritable font of knowledge for anyone interested in books from any angle… You can read our little interview here:
