I was excited this week to see Dead Ink (publishers of my last novel, Brick Mother) reveal their latest experiment in publishing: Publishing The Underground.
By pre-ordering any of the 3 novels from the 2016 list, anybody can become a Dead Ink member, and have a say in the running of the press, including invitations to special members-only readings, and author Q&As. The aim is 21st century publishing for a 21st century readership.
Anybody can join (it costs £12 for a year's membership, I think) and the three books coming up next year look really exciting. Click the link for more info.

There's also a launch at Manchester Anthony Burgess Centre on October 9th... here's the Facebook events page for more information.
