Bookseller by Day, Novelist by Night.
Bookseller by Day, Novelist by Night. Which is to say, “a lie”. I’m a morning writer. Give me a cup of coffee, an eight o’clock start, and four uninterrupted hours of writing time. These days I cram in an hour and twenty minutes and then commute to the day job. I spend a lot of […]
Cover Reveal: The Boy Who Wept Blood
The Boy Who Wept Blood is a new standalone adventure from Den Patrick. Set in his marvellously drawn world of Landfall (a world where characters and author alike have secrets) these are tight, fast moving fantasies driven by all-too-flawed and very real characters. There’s much to appeal to fantasy and historical readers alike with intrigue, […]
The Boy with the Corrected Files.
We were thrilled and proud to publish Den Patrick’s debut novel earlier this year; The Boy With the Porcelain Blade. The book quickly picked up enthusiastic reviews from magazines, fellow authors, bloggers and fans alike. However amongst the praise from readers were some worrying comments about a few pieces of missing text in the ebook […]

Den Patrick and Jen Williams in conversation
Last night we joined debut fantasy authors Den Patrick (The Boy with the Porcelain Blade) and Jen Williams (The Copper Promise) as they answered questions from Jared Shurin of Pornokitsch at a packed event at Blackwell’s Charing Cross Rd. Jared Shurin kicked off proceedings by promising the first-time writers a ground-breaking, original opening question… one that they’ve surely never been […]
Friday Reads: a special guest review of The Boy With The Porcelain Blade
A lovely thing about working in the genre (perhaps the most lovely) is how supportive publishers and authors are of each other. There really is a sense of community, a shared love of great books whoever has published them or written them. If there is rivalry it’s nearly always very friendly and most often there […]

We thought it only fitting that The Copper Promise be reviewed by Den in preparation for what promises to be a great event. The Copper Promise by Jen Williams I first […]
The Boy with the Porcelain Blade cover is revealed!
Meet the boy with the porcelain blade. I knew that Den could write. He’d layered the seemingly simple premise of the Orc, Elf and Dwarf War Manuals with a mischievous wit, a rich world, a sparklingly original background myth and a prose style that adapted itself to different demands and voices. So I really […]
