Waterstones launch

Here are some photos from the launch event for the anthology, held at Waterstones Piccadilly on April 6th. Thirteen of the authors were present, as was our editor Rufus, friends, family and a smattering of industry folk. Our numbers were periodically swelled by various poor lost souls looking for a poetry reading – indeed some even claimed our event was ‘more fun’.

All photos were taken either by Bill (Theresa’s husband) or the super-talented Kate Bulpitt.

The anthology will be launched at Waterstones Piccadilly on April 6th, where the authors will be signing copies available to buy on the night. Attendance is limited, so do get in touch with us or tweet using #unwrittenrulesbook if you want to come / reserve a signed copy.

Kate Hamer, Tim Glencross, James Hannah and Annabelle Thorpe (we hope) will also be happy to sign copies of their novels at the launch.

If you can’t wait to get your hands on a copy, it is strictly speaking available to purchase via Amazon in print and as an e-book now.

 

Exciting news…

We’ve been somewhat quiet of late, but we have some exciting news.

We have had a lovely cover designed for us (by the very talented James Bates):

And even more excitingly, we have a proposed launch date – April 6th. Leave a comment or get in touch if you’d like to come along to the launch (London only, I’m afraid) and get your hands on the exclusive (and sure to become a collectors’ item) hardcopy edition.

Much more soon!

Unwritten Rules

They tie our lives together.

The only way to learn them is by getting them wrong.

But just because they’re not written down doesn’t mean you won’t be judged by them.

Welcome to the anthology of stories where hidden forces are at play.

Welcome to The Book of Unwritten Rules.

…would you have known them?
