not because they tell us that dragons exist, but

Buy Our Latest Title Sam Rogers' Happiness Manifesto

Recent News

front_90

We are delighted to publish what many are deeming, ‘A life-changing read’. It was penned by Sam Rogers who was a vibrant soul in his early 20’s.

He was a dreamer, a philosopher and a literary philanthropist. Fuelled by passion and a driving force to show people there is another way to live, Sam self-published a book called, The Happiness Manifesto.

He used to stand outside banks with a cardboard sign saying things like, ‘Dare to Imagine’ and he gave copies of it away to astonished passers by, trading books for smiles. Dialogue would ensue and they’d end up discussing what really matters in life, as Sam shone new light on their thinking.

In 2014, Sam lost his life in a tragic accident. His father, Tom, wanted to re-publish Sam’s work so it could continue to spread its positive message, as the remaining original copies were distributed to friends and family at his funeral.

Spotlight On: The Essential Oils Companion For Mindfulness

We are delighted to shine a spotlight on the first of a series of books by Heather Godfrey.

Whether you’re a novice user of oils for relaxation and meditation, or someone who keeps hearing the message that they can help soothe your mind and ditch your anxieties, this is the perfect title for you.

Mindfulness is unquestionably Zeitgeist; that said, it is an ancient practice steeped in Buddhist philosophy. Many of us are on a quest to unlock the secrets as to why ancient civilisations prized oils and aromatherapy so highly and in this book, Heather guides you right through the minefield that is mindfulness.

She breaks down complex, mystical terminology into bite sized chunks of digestible information that can help you address a variety of issues that may be troubling you, including stress, a racing mind, loss of mental focus, depression and more besides.

Heather’s stunning photography breaks the text up beautifully and her writing strikes a perfect balance between talking technical and showing you precisely how to treat specific ailments.

All in all, this really is a brilliantly researched one-stop guide to chilling out, naturally!

Subscribe to Heather’s website to keep an eye on where her workshops and talks are taking place – incidentally, they book up very quickly – and for news on when her next title in the series will be published.

Featured Author: Leslie Tate

We are delighted to kick off our Featured Author section by introducing you to the incredibly creative, enigmatic Leslie Tate.

He writes ‘Lit Fic’ about the ups and downs of modern relationships and freely admits his writing is ‘adapted from life’ but says that the characters soon take charge, sending his stories off in unexpected directions.

Leslie began writing his début novel, Purple, 10 years ago. In its first printed version, the book told the story of Matthew Lavender at university in 1969, hiding his lack of sexual knowledge behind a super-cool front. What followed inevitably was a coming-of-age tale where Matthew had to learn about women.

Purple changed and broadened out as a result of two life events. “The first was moving to Berkhamsted,” Leslie explains, “to live with my wife, Sue Hampton. I learned how to write novels from the inside by reading and editing hers.” The second was completing a Writing Masterclass with the University of East Anglia. “I beefed up the novel on that course,” he said, “weeding out 12,000 words but keeping the main idea, and adding a first-person narrative told by Matthew’s gran, Mary.”
