Have you visited our website recently? If you’re a regular visitor, you may have noticed some changes creeping in over the last few days.
We have just added four of our forthcoming Spring titles to the website: Do Chocolate Lovers Have Sweeter Babies? by Jena Pincott, How Puzzles Improve Your Brain by Richard Restak and featuring puzzles by Scott Kim, The Vein of Gold by Julia Cameron, author of the bestselling book The Artist’s Way, and Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain – the expanded and updated fourth edition by Betty Edwards.
We have added a brand new In the News section, which features a whole host of topical news stories that tie in with the books on our list. We don’t have anything about horse-meat, I’m afraid. But you’ve probably read enough about that already! But in the past few weeks alone we’ve had British citizenship tests, care quality in the UK, the anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster, and mental health clinics for MPs… So hopefully this new section will give you an idea of the huge variety of titles that we publish, and hopefully something there will take your fancy!
Finally, we’ve added a page for our fantastic Independent Voices series, which is dedicated to publishing writers who provide alternative viewpoints and challenge conventional wisdom, making available work that has been unavailable in the UK although it is as relevant today as on its original publication. This series includes, among others, The Book by Alan Watts – our biggest-selling e-book of last year and undoubtedly our ‘Book of the Year 2012′, Randy Shilts’ shattering history of HIV and AIDS, And the Band Played On, and Tintin in the New World by Frederic Tuten, featuring distinctive cover art by Roy Lichtenstein (whose work is subject of a huge retrospective exhibition at the Tate Modern, ongoing until May).
Add to that a few design changes, and suddenly the Souvenir Press website has a slick new look. Take a look, and let us know what you think. Is there anything missing, or anything you think we should do differently? We’d love to hear from you.
