Our Xmas Present to You!

To say thanks tattu-cover-midrezo all our readers and contributors for your support in 2016, we’ve just published Attu, a short story by Richard “Unbearably exciting and witty” Major about a playboy President who announces the end of the world. It’s a mix of black humour and political satire with a hint of romance – the ideal antidote to too much Festive Good Cheer (or anxiety about soon-to-be President Trump).
Attu is available as a free e-book over the Christmas holiday. Just click here and download from the Kindle store in the usual way, but you won’t pay anything and you get to keep it. You can tell all your friends too – but the discount only lasts until the end of Boxing Day, so hurry!

Last chance…

A gentle reminder that IndieBooks’ order deadline for deliveries before Christmas will be midday tomorrow. For those deliberating, use code CMAS20 for a 20% discount on all our titles! (Excluding charity title, ‘From Syria With Love’).



Hidden Gems of 2016

The week is off to a good start at IndieBooks after seeing Latitude North included in yesterday’s Guardian article “Hidden gems of 2016: the best books you may have missed”.

Charles Moseley’s Latitude North (Indie Books £20) ventures even further towards the pole, following a lifelong passion for the icy landscapes of Greenland and Spitsbergen. Moseley draws on his expertise as a literary scholar to weave the history and myth of the northern lands into accounts of his own travels. The result is a lyrical treasure chest of anecdote and insight.

So if you are one of the unfortunate people who did miss Latitude North, order today from our website to get it before Christmas!

Tune In Now

IndieBooks’ Richard Major is talking about his debut novel, Quintember, today at 4pm on BBC Radio Cambridge. Richard is one to watch – next from him we can expect not only the sequel, but also some dystopian tales for the Trump era.

Make sure to tune in, as he is as interesting in real life as you would expect from the book!

Richard has degrees in history, literature and theology, and gained a DPhil at Magdalen College, Oxford with a thesis on literary philosophy after the Reformation. He has since taught there and at universities in England, Italy, America, Australia, India, Slovenia and, most recently, Hungary. For some years he worked in New York as a journalist and commentator. He now lives with his wife and two children in Africa.

Listen here.
