After a pause of sorts

Opening Chapter has been ticking along in the background for a few years while we’ve pursued other projects.

But after a few months of working on the foundations, the walls and roof of this publishing house are finally taking shape.

We have two new releases coming up very soon. Cheats and Liars by Derec Jones will be available in a few days, while Ticket to Paradise by Elizabeth Morgan is being launched at the Chapter Arts Centre at the end of September.

Over the next few months we have at least three new titles to release including a lovely vegan cookbook.

And, we are now actively seeking submissions for new titles – please see our submissions page for more info


Cheats and Liars

We’re gearing up for a busy few months here. At the end of September we will be launching a major new novel by Elizabeth Morgan, more news about that in a couple of days.

Before that we are launching Cheats and Liars, the new novel from Derec Jones, more on that soon too.

Here’s a sneak preview of the book cover

Listen…beauty and ugliness and a poetry of both…

Listen…the wheel is whispering…can you hear?
