Press Releases / BooHoo Books - new small press launches!
« Last post by AlexDavis on December 04, 2013, 03:38:56 PM »
NEW INDEPENDENT PUBLISHING PRESS LAUNCHES IN DERBY

This December sees the official launch of BooHoo Books, a new independent publishers based in Derby and run by Alex Davis, a prominent figure in the local literature scene over the last decade.

BooHoo Books sets out with a remit to promote local talent and authors, and will be open to work in a wide range of genres and styles. As well as this focus on Derby and the East Midlands, BooHoo Books will also be looking to work collaboratively and tie in to other ventures and organisations in the region.

The first title from BooHoo Books will be QUAD Writes, a collection of stories from past participants in QUAD's host of creative writing courses since 2011. Three years in the making, the book includes a broad range of stories from some of the most talented authors to pass through the long-running courses. The launch of this book will take place at QUAD on the 11th December from 7pm onwards.

BooHoo Books publisher Alex Davis said: 'I'm delighted to finally be taking the plunge into a small press, and QUAD Writes as a debut book perfectly sums up what the press is all about – great local authors and a collection associated with one of Derby's foremost cultural venues. Derby has been my home for many years now, and I hope that BooHoo Books will be able to bring something extra to the literature scene locally.'

The second title from BooHoo Books, Breaking the Rules, was originated from a writing course at QUAD and features a number of local authors alongside national and international talent. This collection focuses on the theme of games, and will be out in the early part of 2014.

Alex Davis said: 'Breaking the Rules is well on its way, and I'm delighted with how the collection has shaped up. I was lucky enough to be able to hand-pick a number of those stories, and work closely with the authors in many cases, and the end product has a great mixture of humorous stories and darker material too.'

BooHoo Books is keen to hear from new writers from around the area, as it will be looking to give vital exposure and opportunities to great new talent. Whilst the first two titles are short story collections, the press will also be open to novel submissions.

Alex Davis added: 'Much of the impetus behind the idea came from encountering so much great talent in my everyday work, and the desire to give that an outlet and a voice in the marketplace. It's not just about BooHoo Books succeeding in its own right, but also contributing to the success of authors elsewhere and developing their careers. I've got handshake agreements in place for some very exciting books in the future also, so there's plenty of great work in the pipeline.'

Feedback / Problems with reading a pdf on-line?? Here's a solution.
« Last post by Geoff the head Uncle on November 28, 2013, 06:08:30 AM »
              You know how it is, you see one thing as you think it is and assume everyone has a similar problem.
Case in point is the Adobe software not letting me read pdf files direct off the Net. Once a pdf is downloaded, everything is fine and it works. I even checked the settings to see if there was anything I turned on by mistake. You would still have to put a pdf file to see any settings and hope that there was something general there.
   Anyway, today I systematically uninstalled and reinstalled all the Adobe software and used the Reader X again. Downloaded a pdf off the Net perfectly this time and then a message popped up asking whether I wanted to use some old settings it discovered or the default ones.
   I suspect this is what happened with every upgrade, it keeps the old settings and faults they have. Logistically, I can see a lot of people keeping settings that are familiar with…if they are given the option. This time, I kept to default.
   If you’re having a similar problem, then this is the solution.
