Happy New Year from Dave and Kate at ideas4writers!
We’re already hard at work on the new books we’re planning to bring you this year.
Dave is engrossed in Chapter 6 of his novel, Brassica Park, which features the characters Stan and Martha Bean. You may have seen them having little adventures in the 35 volumes of our ideas collection. Now they’re involved in a book-length adventure that will not only change their lives but several other peoples’ too. The writing and publishing industry features quite heavily, of course. (Stan’s publisher is pure evil!) Dave has promised a short teaser next month.
Meanwhile Kate is looking after our non-fiction department. She’s currently preparing The Date-A-Base Book 2017 for printing – the ebook version is already on sale. And she’s downloading the source files for the 2018 edition, which they’ll work on together once Dave has finished Brassica Park.
The Date-A-Base is our annual collection of forthcoming newsworthy and notable anniversaries. It’s hugely popular with writers, journalists, TV and film companies, event organisers and all sorts of other people, who get to see thousands of things that will be making the news in months, or even years, to come. That gives them plenty of time to research and write their stories and articles, and prepare them for publication or broadcast, to coincide with the anniversaries themselves.
The Date-A-Base Books are the subject of this year’s New Year Giveaway. If you buy either the 2016 or 2017 edition during January, you can also choose one of the 35 ebooks* in our ideas collection as our gift to you. If you buy both editions then you can choose two books from the collection!
All you have to do is email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) once you’ve placed your order, and tell us which book(s) you want as your gift.
If you’ve already bought the books earlier this month, you’re still eligible.
This offer is valid until midnight (UK time) on 31st January 2016.
*Only the 35 single-category books in the ideas collection are included in the giveaway, not the 5 multi-category volumes.
