New Website

Well, the new website is up – although by no means finished! Thanks to the people at SiteOrigin for another nice piece of WordPress goodness. We’re still getting the hang of this WordPress theme, and the website will evolve as our understanding does, but we think it’s a big improvement.

Still to come are things like a subscription page, links to audio book excerpts etc., submissions page etc.. Hopefully all up before July, although Covid-19 has meant changed priorities for a while.

According to the WEF ‘In the UK, fiction sales climbed by a third and children’s educational titles went up 234% to the third-highest level on record in the final week of March, according to a BBC report. Similarly, in the US there was a 66% lift in sale of children’s non-fiction books in the week ending 21 March, according to the NPD Group’.

Might be a good time to expand into children’s books …

Ru Pringle to release 3 books

It’s been a hectic few months for Fractal Symmetry author Ru Pringle.

He’s been burning the candle at both ends during the lockdown and the result is no less than three new novels to be released this summer: the irreverently humourous Surfers – SF comedy in something like the traditional of Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and Robert Rankin; and City of Dreams and Dust and A Haven in the Stars – the two volumes of the epic and poignant space opera The Seed.

Surfers is due out on 20th June, with City of Dreams and Dust and A Haven in the Stars coming out on 9th July. EBook versions are currently available on Amazon as pre-orders, with paperbacks available after the official publication dates. Audio book versions will be available later in 2020.

There should be some exciting developments at Fractal Symmetry later this summer – stay tuned for more information!
