About ThunderPoint Publishing
ThunderPoint Publishing has been created to publish great new literature, from established and first time authors alike.
We have an international outlook, love reading and want to bring new literature we enjoy to other readers.
Initially we will be publishing fiction, then expanding into non-fiction.
Our aim is to publish books radical in ideas, concepts and message that challenge us and other readers.
Our first book from established non-fiction writer, Huw Francis, was published in ebook format and trade paperback during March 2013. Set in the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan Mule Train envelopes the reader in this little known country and is a page-turner you will not want to put down.
Margot McCuaig was announced as our second author during July 2013 and The Birds That Never Flew was published in November to much acclaim. The Birds That Never Flew was shortlisted for the 2012 Dundee International Book Prize (under its working tile of 'The Dandelion Clock'). The novel is written with a strong Glasgow influence and tragically conveys the impact of poverty, drugs and abuse, with the surreal vision of a Glaswegian Virgin Mary acting as guardian angel to the lead character.
A Good Death by Helen Davis was published in February 2014. Helen Davis deftly weaves the 1980's readjustment of British social boundaries into her novel as she transports the reader from coming of age student life in England, through adventure, death and life changing experiences in Peru, to a disastrous attempt at rediscovering lost youth and innocence, nearly thirty years too late.
ThunderPoint will be publishing titles in a range of ebook formats to suit every device, as well as using the more traditional print format.
Based in Scotland, ThunderPoint Publishing will be bringing you new fiction from an expanding range of outlets around the world, at great prices.
ThunderPoint Publishing is run by Seonaid Francis who has a BA(Hons) in Literature from Strathclyde University and an M.Litt. from the University of the Highlands and Islands. She taught International Literature, Creative Writing and English Language for many years before launching ThunderPoint Publishing.
The company is a Publisher Member of Publishing Scotland.
