Cool World depicts a disturbing dystopian world ruled by the young. Two teenagers, Joshwa and Mree, are forced to take on the fearsome Head Boy and Head Girl and redeem their fallen society. 352 pages of edgy angst. Definitely NOT for children.

Yet To Arrive…


Image Our next firm title is set for release later this year. The Strange Encounter of Sally Shakespeare and Toby Tinker is a thoughtful and unusual story for the 10-13 age range. Similar in a way to Train Ghost, it brings together two very different lives. The cover for this book is being designed by students at the University of Lincoln. Release date: October 2013. ISBN: 978-1-908577-40-5. We also have planned a wonderful story set in Africa by new author Catherine Cowell. More in the next issue.


Star Games was reissued in mid-November 2012 with a sparkling new cover by artist Felix Leone. In the wake of the Olympics, this is a timely reminder about the nature of competition and the bonds of friendship.

Dedication

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.
