Hold onto your Hats!

Our quest for global domination took another leap forward today when the mailman delivered some news that was so EXCELLENT Mike and I just had to dance a celebratory jig right there in the middle of the office. The up-shot is that we've added another top-notch writer to our line-up in the shape of JOHN EDWARD AMES, a prolific penman whose CHEYENNE and WILD BILL series (written under the name JUDD COLE) we'll be launching in ebook format later in 2014! We've got two new artists onboard to look after the series and there's a striking concept for each of the series.

Two from Tony Masero

Whilst Tony Masero has been very busy working on the cover art for many of our books, we haven’t forgotten him as an author. That’s why we are happy to announce that we will be publishing two of his fast-action Westerns in mid-March and mid-April: THE RIFLEMEN and THE PURSUED. Thus you get a double-whammy - great art plus great writing. I hope you enjoy.

Ronald Chetwynd-Hayes comes to PP

It seems that not a week goes by this year without us being able to tell you of yet another author joining PP. This time around it's award-winning author Ronald Chetwynd-Hayes aka "Britain's Prince of Chill". We have agreed contracts with his estate to reissue a number of horror anthologies.  Dave hasn't rested on his laurels and has come up with this striking artwork which captures Ron's underlying humor.
We haven't got a firm publication date as yet but we will keep you informed.

The Return of Mike Faraday

Mike Faraday visualised by Rob Moran
Piccadilly Publishing is to release the digital backlist of Basil Copper’s PI Series, Mike Faraday. The Dark Mirror will be published on 01 April 2014 at the low price of .99p and will publish one per month thereafter until the series is complete.

Mike Stotter said, “We’ve looked at our past sales and like every publisher out there, look to experiment with the price. At .99p per title the readers will eventually be able to build a complete Mike Faraday series for less than £52.00. Compared to having to buy the physical books, which could set them back in the region of £350 (if they can get them all); this is a bargain that will be very hard to resist. The series will also carry especially-commissioned covers painted by film noir specialist Rob Moran.”

The Dark Mirror was originally published in 1966 and introduced hard-boiled Los Angeles P.I. Mike Faraday. Faraday is your typical pulp private eye: tough; quick with the wise-cracks and his fists, and oh yes – he also has a healthy eye for the ladies. The series ran for more than two decades, with the final book, Print Out, appearing in 1988. The series will be available across all platforms including Kindle, Nook, Kobo and Smashwords.
