The Bookseller: 'Small Press of the Year' award 2019
We made it! We can't believe that we've made it through to the regional finals for the Bookseller's 'Small Press of the Year' award! Thank you so much to everyone that worked with us, supported us, and published with us last year - you are the reason that we had such an amazing 2018 and have been able to apply for this award. Well done to everyone that has made it this far too - we're very excited to be listed with so many amazing UK-based publishing houses. We cannot wait to see who makes the national finals... but we're very proud to have made it this far!
Book launch - February 2019
We had such a brilliant time seeing everyone at our book launch on the 9th February - thank you so much to everyone that came! We enjoyed some excellent speeches by our authors as they presented their new books. Thank you to Trevor Farrell, Steve Dyster, Steve Driscoll and Judy Brulo for coming to talk to us about your latest publications - a special congratulations to Trevor Farrell for the publication of your wonderful debut poetry collection! We were even visited by two of our other authors; Hector and Laura! We couldn't resist the chance to take a photo of our youngest and oldest authors together:
Updates from Moscow
We've recently received some festive updates from our colleague in Moscow, Luba, who works as a guide in the city! She has kindly sent us some amazing photos of central Moscow throughout December and January, and we'd love to share them with everyone. Head over to our Facebook page, @northstaffordshirepress, for even more photos, and check out our latest edition of the Henson Herald as well for an article about the photos, written by Luba herself. We can't wait to receive the next updates to share with you, but for now, please enjoy these photos!
