Another month has passed us by, and we are one step closer to summer. The capricious weather, however, has not stopped us from staying busy and bringing forth some brilliant Ringwood events.

We launched the new books of two established Ringwood authors, Rob McInroy and Lynda Kristiansen, both with huge success. Rob’s new instalment of his Bob Kelty historical crime series, Moot, was officially launched at Strathearn Arts in Crieff, the author’s hometown, on Sunday May 26th, accompanied by the announcement of more books of the series to come. Worry not if you missed the event, you can watch the live recording here. To learn more about the book, the author, and to get your own copy, you can visit our site here.

Following the successful launch of Raise Dragon in Rouen, France, Lynda finally launched her much-anticipated Revenge of the Tyrants in front of a full-house audience at the end of April at Hillhead Library, Glasgow. Now both books, as the first two of Lynda’s planned series of eight novels on the Wars of Scottish Independence, are live on Ringwood’s website here.

With a bit over a month until Ringwood officially launches Rebecca Brown’s Song of the Stag, we are already assured of its success. In an interview with our intern Rachel Harley, Rebecca lovingly described this novel as ‘hopeful, stirring, tragic and revealed more of her insight on not only the book but also her creative process – you can read the full interview in our newsletter. Song of the Stag will be launched at 7pm on June 27th at the Tinsmith, Glasgow. You can now pre-order and receive a signed copy of the book a week before the official launch here.

Ever wondered how the beautiful covers of Ringwood books came about? Our in-house Graphic Designer Skye Galloway answered all you would want to know on Sunday 19th May at our Covers Event at Hillhead Library. At the event, the cover of our newly published The Hotel Hokusai designed by Skye herself was named ‘Ringwood Cover of the Decade’. Congratulations again Skye!

As usual, we had a lovely chat with one of our Interns, Annemarie Whitehurst, who has been contributing and playing an important role here at Ringwood for 6 months. Annemarie shared with us her experience working across multiple teams and her further insight into the publishing industry.
