Buddhism and other such rubbish!

Gavin is a stand-up comedian, and has put together some of his material into a laugh-out-loud book. As well as selling it through online retailers, he offers signed copies at his shows, and has had a great response to his musings on those who profess to be experts on every subject under the sun!

Oslo

This is a delightful story about a whale whose tail looks like a Wellington boot. Stephen wanted copies to sell and distribute himself initially to gauge feedback – and he has had a great response to his children’s tale (and tail).

The Long Purr

A delightful tale for cat lovers everywhere. Michael provided the illustration for the front cover, and we used this as the basis of the cover design. Once the book was published, we set up and ran an advertising campaign on Amazon to boost exposure and sales.

Feathers & Furs 2

This is the second, beautifully illustrated book that we’ve worked with Paul on – a follow up to Feathers & Furs, a delightful story that connects young children with many different animals, and will hopefully set them up for a lifetime. A colourful treat!

Floral Design and Blossom

The design of this book was fundamental to the project, as clearly a book about how to create stunning floral displays and arrangements has to look good! Rita’s designs are a beautiful mix of classic and contemporary, and she shows, step-by-step, how to create these with just a few key ‘ingredients’ and a dash of […]

Maybe just this once

We were delighted to work once more with this husband and wife team – he does the illustrations, she does the words. Their first book was a children’s novel. This time the illustrations took centre stage, in a delightful and enchanting book for younger readers.

A heart beats within

This is the magical and touching story of a rocking horse told in his own words. He vividly describes the pain and joy of possessing a heart as he journeys through 80 years of his life. His adventures take him on a colourful and riveting ride. Beautifully illustrated by the author and her friend, this […]

A Touchy Subject

A humorous look at life in the secondary school classroom from the point of view of an experienced supply teacher expressed through a series of letters to her absent colleague, Cassie. The characters at the school – and there are plenty of ‘characters’ – and the author’s own family, really come to life through her […]

The Fall of a Warrior

It’s gratifying to see the 5-star ratings rolling in for this debut from Scottish writer James Cook. The first in a trilogy, The Fall of a Warrior focuses on three separate stories that are seamlessly wound together, set in a fantasy world and featuring swords, heroes, and adventures aplenty.

Property Accounting with Sage

There aren’t many books on how to perform accounting for property managers and property investors, and  this book explains the basic principles needed to correctly record accounting information relating to property. It uses worked examples for setting up and recording information in the popular Sage 50 accounting package, and is the first in a series […]

So your child is a complete arsehole

What a fun project this was. The book began as a novelty Christmas present for the author’s parents (an unusual apology!), but turned into something bigger – recollecting all the drama and incidents of childhood, and what a pain in the backside your child can be – from the adult perspective once they achieve a […]

Jagged on the Inside

This is a hard-hitting, semi-autobiographical book about a woman looking back at her life thus far. It details some of the most traumatic events in her life – the jagged years – including the death of her mother as a child, abuse, neglect and betrayal growing up, and her decline into major depression. Jagged on […]

Grit and Silver

Partly based on the author’s earlier life and encounters, this magical realism novella follows three women growing up in poverty in the Peruvian Amazon of the 1990s, then caught up in cocaine trade and communist terrorism. Their partners are a soldier and drug producer, an illegal logger, and a terrorist leader… They experience life on […]

Nosey Nora

This beautiful illustrated children’s book was a personal project to raise funds for pancreatic cancer, but book sales have far exceeded expectations and Michael sold out of his first 500 print run within weeks. Local radio, Premiership football players and social media played a big part in promoting the book, with the result that lots […]

Sensual Sorcery

Stella Ralfini has a successful career as a women’s empowerment teacher and is a mine of knowledge when it comes to natural health and beauty. At 72, she credits her homemade recipes using essential oils and everything else supplied by nature for the quality of her skin, her body shape and good health. Sensual Sorcery […]

The Organisation

The Organisation is a fantasy set in a make-believe world of wooden sailing ships, horse-drawn carriages and soldiers in red tunics and tall hats. Although it is a fairy tale it contains no magic or talking animals and is not meant for young children. It is intended for grown-ups, particularly ones with inquiring interests in […]

Colour-blind

A memoir with a difference – a life that began in Durban, South Africa, growing up ‘colour-blind’, unaware of being classed as ‘mixed blood’ until Ken tries to get an apprenticeship – only available to ‘whites’ – and then decides to seek pastures new in England, where he still resides, finding the joy of colour […]

Abigail’s Secret

The appeal (and success) of this book lies in the way the author’s historical research has been woven into a wonderful tale of secrets, romance, relationships and most of all the way we can never fully escape the past. Set over almost a century, Abigail’s Secret has an enduring charm.
