New Writers

While the joy of savouring a new title by a favourite author is a pretty special feeling, there is something a touch more exciting in discovering a debut voice, and being able to watch a new career flourish from their very first page. The start of each new year always sees a bold selection of debut novels and non-fiction books; whether they are complete debuts authors bravely pushng their work out into the world for the first time, or authors being published first time in the UK, or making their English language debut. 

Below you will find a selection of some of new debuts publishing in the coming months, with our favourite recommendations presented at the top. As a team we have been lucky enough to read advance copies of these titles and can honestly say you really will want to read them, and say you were there first!
