Our catalogue also includes the award-winning novella The Mesmerist’s Daughter by Heidi James, The Naming Of Cancer (a fourteen-poem chapbook by Scottish Book Trust Award-winning poet Tracey S Rosenberg), and A Week With Beijing by prolific author and academic Meg Eden. We also produce a number of free pamphlets.”
