The latest from RedDoor

We are very excited to announce that we will be publishing Dust, the debut novel from Mark Thompson.

Set in 1960s New Jersey, the book follows J.J. Walsh and Tony "El Greco" Papadakis, two young boys set on adventure who dream of one day seeing the Pacific Ocean. Through the dry heat of a formative summer and a road trip across the American South that reveals a nation divided, the protagonists have to grow up fast in a world at times confusing, and at others seen with a clarity only the young can possess. 

Dust is a timeless novel with an unforgettable cast of characters, a vivid setting, and a message that will resonate with readers of every age. Our publication date is set for September 2016, and we will of course keep you updated with its progress!

Our second new book announcement this month is for the beautiful Animal Soul, a carefully curated collection of close and personal dog and cat portraits, shot by award-winning photographer Robert Bahou, that offer a real window directly into the animalʼs soul. Doesn't your heart just melt seeing these fluffy friends?

The book also gives an insight into Robert's techniques and his passion for the photographic form. This is a must for any animal lover who appreciates the charm and idiosyncrasies of their pets! Publication is scheduled for September 15th.

And if you haven't already, don't forget to vote for Andy Rumbold's 
The Last Fiesta in The People's Book Prize. We have until May 15th to have our say - which you can do by clicking here - so keep your fingers crossed until then!
