At a certain point in life – let’s just call it early middle age – birthdays can feel somewhat understated. With the exuberance of coming of age at 18 and 21, the growing up marker of 30 and the landmark 40 firmly under your belt (this writer’s certainly), personal celebrations get a little more routine. At the same time, other people’s birthdays start to become far more interesting as they grow up or hit some of the milestones mentioned above.
Next month, we are publishing a fantastic new course book for National 5 English. In this blog post, Dr Christopher Nicol, one of our bestselling authors, suggests some ways of improving your pupils’ prose fiction.
Last month, we added to our Advanced Higher list and published a new Study Guide for Advanced Higher English, which is our July book of the month. We now have six Study Guides at this level and are delighted to have many more in the pipeline. Our Advanced Higher English Study Guide has been written by two experienced authors, Dr Christopher Nicol and Dr Sandra Percy, who are subject experts in this field of study.
We are a small, but perfectly formed, team of six and we manage every part of our publishing process from right here in Scotland. We have a wee office in Edinburgh where all the commissioning, editing, publishing, and marketing takes place and a warehouse in beautiful Fife.
