Hawkwood publishes a growing range of challenging fiction supported by a growing number of readers.
To all those who have bought our books and kept things going for four years, a big thank you together with good wishes for the holiday season and the new year. Keep the faith.
In this newsletters are outlines for the year 2011 including a historical action adventure and the next two books in the Fantastic Construction Kit series.
And it still isn’t too late to buy…
Our Christmas book is a story about loss, love, hurt and healing. If you’d like something different when the festive season arrives, try this moving tale of Philip King and his extraordinary gift, a magical cabinet full of wonders, but decidedly picky in how it uses its power. When no present on Earth can make him happy again, it will take one not from Earth to do the trick.
The Fantastic Galactic Construction Kit
by Sarah Lee Hope
When I was five,” said Nancy, “I got a second hand pair of socks, when I was six I got a second hand pair of gloves, seven a second hand doll, eight a rubbish second hand hat, nine another pair of socks and last year a second hand dress. I’m a second-hand girl, Philip.”
“But this is a first-hand tree, isn’t it? No one has ever had a present like this, not in the history of everything.”
Hawkwood Books is a small but defiantly hopeful publishing venture aiming to produce quality fiction for young people.

As ever, difficult to say when exactly this will be, probably in February 2011, but will definitely focus on The Millennium Stones, at least as definitely as anything can be in life.

Book dedications have always intrigued me, but so far I’ve never seen a website dedication. Perhaps this is the first. As it says in The Last Garden, “So special, so loved, so missed.” This little dedication is For Ana.
