Story telling has always been one of the most important aspects of what makes us human. There is more storytelling now than there has ever been, through films, TV, blogs, computer games, theatre, art - and of course - books. People often say that their books are their most treasured possessions, and research has shown that reading improves our well-being by both enriching our emotional world, educating us, and providing escape from the stresses of our everyday lives.
The advent of e-books has been both a curse and a blessing. On the one hand it has provided a fantastic opportunity for writers to get their stories into the world at a time when agents and the big publishers are taking only a tiny fraction of the writing that is submitted to them; on the other, the explosion of new books that are available can be daunting and confusing to the reader.
Storyland Press provides a great way for readers to engage with quality, exciting writing, direct from the writers. We have strong criteria for the books we choose; at their core they must have a fantastic story, but they must also be well written and professionally edited. As a Brighton & Hove based publisher we also only publish local authors, and some of our stories are set in our beautiful city by the sea too.
