Well, I've been dropping enough hints that I had projects on the go. This is the first one.
I take little credit for the idea. Four friends got together and decided that the internet provided the perfect opportunity to publish excellent fiction. They are incredibly committed to supporting and promoting creative excellence in the written word. I asked to join the party because it's such a fantastic opportunity and I'm a sucker for a challenge.
Thus, Unthank Books was conceived. The ethos behind the company is to take the risks publishers used to take on unusual novels: writers who were finding their feet; writers who had something interesting to say. We will publish novels that are prepared to take risks; challenge their readers; novels that have something interesting to say and interesting ways to say it.
The inaugural novel is TOUCHING THE STARFISH by Ashley Stokes.
It's an interesting vision of the creative writing world. Having lived through that world, it made me laugh and cringe, usually at the same time. It is writing at its most inventive. If you're up for something different (and no, that's not me being polite), follow the link. We are a print on demand publisher, so the book you order is for you and you alone.
I hope you enjoy.
PS: If you like what you see, can you please pass it on?
I know, I know, it's a shameless plug.
PPS. The Facebook Page, be a fan. Go on, you know you want to!
