…and we also have two new books for the littles ones by Pip Bird and Nadia Shireen!

The 9th edition in the Naughtiest Unicorn series by Pip Bird. this is The Naughtiest Unicorn in a Winter Wonderland:

It’s time for wintry fun with Mira and Dave the Naughtiest Unicorn! And this time they are going on a very special quest to see the magical winter lights! (Although Dave is more interested in the hot chocolate and chips.) But what lies behind the snowy mountain peaks – could there really be a terrifying YETI lurking there …?

We also have the eagerly awaited Grimwood by Nadia Shireen:

Laugh your head off with this fully-illustrated new series from award-winning Nadia Shireen. Perfect for readers age 7 to 107, fans of Dog Man, Roald Dahl, Mr Gum and David Walliams, and anyone who loves to laugh.
 
Fox cub siblings Ted and Nancy are on the run from Princess Buttons, the scariest street cat in the Big City. They flee for Grimwood, expecting to find refuge in the peaceful countryside.  Instead, they are met with thieving eagles, dramatic ducks, riotous rabbits and a whole host of unusual characters. Grimwood is…weird. But when Princess Buttons tracks them down, Nancy and Ted and the animals of Grimwood must unite in a mind-bending race against time…
This memorable, distinctive and warm-hearted comedy series will have kids begging to read more.

Happy publication day to three of our wonderful clients! First we have The Ash House by Angharad Walker…

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children meets Lord of the Flies in the exciting debut from Angharad Walker.

A new boy arrives at the Ash House. He can’t remember his name – or why he’s been sent there.

Given the name Sol, and troubled by a mystery pain that no medicine can cure, he joins the gang of children living in the shadows of the secretive house.

Soon, however, there’s more for him to face: the darkness that descends with the arrival of the Doctor…

HUGE Publication Day for JULA!

Happy happy happy publication to six of our wonderful authors!

Sarah Moore Fitzgerald and her middle grade rags to riches novel All The Money in the World.

Amanda Block’s beautiful debut The Lost Storyteller celebrates the power and resilience of imagination.

Notes on Rape Culture – a searing and powerfully written exploration of rape culture and surviving sexual violence, written by Catriona Morton host of BBC Sounds podcast “After”.

Arrowood and the Meeting House Murders – the gripping fourth instalment in the private investigator William Arrowood series.

Pip Bird’s

And the fiction debut from 
Sunday Times bestselling author Cathy Rentzenbrink, Everyone Is Still Alive is funny and moving, intimate and wise; a novel that explores the deeper realities of marriage and parenthood and the way life thwarts our expectations at every turn.

My Mess is a Bit of a Life by Georgia Pritchett – out now in hardback and paperback!

Multi-award-winning television writer and producer Georgia Pritchett knows a thing or two about anxiety. From worrying about the monsters under her bed as a child (Were they comfy enough?), to embracing womanhood, (One way of knowing you have crossed from girlhood to womanhood is that men stop furtively masturbating at you from bushes and start shouting things at you from cars. It’s a beautiful moment) worry has accompanied her at every turn.

This memoir is a joyful reflection on just how to live – and sometimes even thrive (sometimes not) – with anxiety.

Happy publication day to AJ Pearce and Xanthi Barker!


Every bit as funny, touching and cheering as AJ Pearce’s debut, Dear Mrs Bird, YOURS CHEERFULLY is a celebration of friendship, a testament to the strength of women and the importance of lifting each other up, even in the most challenging times.

Xanthi Barker’s debut publication WILL THIS HOUSE LAST FOREVER? is a heartfelt and wholly original memoir about the pain of having to come to terms with a parent’s mortality, the way grief so utterly defies logic, and about learning to see the flaws in those that we love, and let them go.

Happy publication day Jacqueline Roy
