One of my fave publishers turned one and they are just growing up so fast! 🙂 To celebrate this milestone, Fahrenheit are giving away a subscription to their Book Club, which means the winner will receive all the books published in 2016, 50+ books in case you were wondering!!! More on this in a bit!
Fahrenheit Press is the brainchild of Chris McVeigh. And to be fair, he’s a bit of a rebel… Here’s some info from their website.
About Fahrenheit Press:
“Hot Punk Publishers”
That’s what they’re calling us and who are we to disagree?
The brains behind Fahrenheit Press have worked in the publishing industry for over 25 years and we figured it was time we created the publishing company we always dreamed of. We shoot from the lip and we call it like we see it – if that rubs people up the wrong way we can live with that.
Fahrenheit Press are a brand new publishing house founded by international publishing veteran Chris McVeigh.
“We’re intent on doing things differently and we’re building a publishing company that’s heavy on curation and deadly serious about marketing.”
After many years helping the world’s biggest publishers build authors and create best-selling titles we’ve decided the time is right to step out from behind the curtain, set up our own publishing house and do things the way we think they should be done. We definitely won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but that’s just the way we like it. If we’re not ruffling some feathers, we reckon we’re doing something wrong.
“It’s fair to say I’ve never looked much like a traditional publisher. I’m not suited, I’m not booted, and the nearest I’ve come to tweed is the Jean Paul Gaultier kilt I wore for a few years back in the nineties.”
For sure our punk ethos runs through everything we do but don’t mistake our tone for unprofessionalism – over the years we’ve helped shift literally millions of books for some of the biggest publishers in the world.
We’ve only just started out on this journey and we really appreciate all the support you’ve given us so far – it’s been a real blast – we have no idea where this will take us but we promise you the ride will never be boring.
I’ve been folllowing Fahrenheit since they first appeared, and I’ve been very lucky to be a part of some of the cool stuff they have done!
In a world first, Fahrenheit Press uploaded a book to Amazon with no title, no author and no description. And that book now has my name in it, as well as the other people who took a chance and bought what turned out to be The Lobster Boy and the Fat Lady’s Daughter by Charles Kriel. This book was one of my top reads of 2015!
As well as Lobster, I’ve also had the privilege of having both Jo Perry and Paul Charles join me on the blog and you can see those here:
