Win a signed print of MAGGIE BLUE and watch the recorded interview here!

It was never the intention that we would publish Anna Goodall’s magnificent novel, MAGGIE BLUE AND THE DARK WORLD, into a pandemic – we were anticipating a launch in a local indie bookshop clutching warm glasses of white wine. But the beauty of a Zoom event became evident – last night we spent an hour in the company of Anna and the multi-award-winning and all round lovely person, Kiran Millwood Hargrave, for a fascinating conversation about the book, writing styles, how indie publishing differs from big corporation and editorial methods, amongst much much more.

We loved watching – and in case you couldn’t make it live, here is a recording of the event to listen to in your own time. The readings by Anna are simply amazing too – she’s destined for an audiobook career!
