Our Talented Authors & Their Websites

The Magic Oxygen Bookshelf

We are so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with such a smashing bunch of authors and playwrights.

As well as producing most excellent books and plays, many of them are what you might call ‘hot bloggers’ too!

Sue Hampton, Chris Hill, Elizabeth J WalkerLeslie Tate, Izzy Robertson and Heather Godfrey are some of the most prolific ones, so if you’d like to get to know the people behind the publications, take a look at our carousel of talented scribes, click on their pictures and see what they’ve got to say for themselves!

If you like what you see, don’t forget to subscribe to their websites and be among the first to know where they’re appearing and what’s coming soon.

Come & Fall in Love With Our Amazing Authors on Sat 14th Feb

 

If you’ve been keeping an eye on our social media, you’ll know we’re all  getting a bit excited about Valentine’s Day… We are going to be sharing the love of 8 brand new books, so hot off the press they aren’t even in the shops yet!

On the 14th February, you are all cordially invited to our Meet the Author gig, one of the pinnacle events of the Lyme Literary Festival which we’ve helped to put together. The doors will be open at The Hub on Church Street in Lyme Regis from 11am to 2pm and you’ll be able to meet all of our amazing new authors and a few of our existing ones too.

With an absolute plethora of content and literary activity going on that day, you must ensure you have it marked in your diary. Tickets are just £2 on the door and fully redeemable against book purchases. You’ll also get a delicious cake for every book bought too, a perfect treat to enjoy as you snaffle off to a comfy chair to dive into your new books!

Between now and next Saturday, have fun hopping around on our funky widget – click the titles and see where they take you!
