Product Description

Product Description

There are over one-hundred (that’s 100!) stories in here for your delectation. There’s tales of mad men, bad men and really, really sad men. Drugs, mugs and thugs mix with the great and good as we look back over the first six volumes of the mighty ‘Radgepacket’ series. But before you start, here’s a bit of our history – just for you.

Way back in the mists of time, before e-readers were invented and everyone with a blog was a ‘publisher’, a group of people from the North East of England who weren't that enthralled by reading the memoirs of some 'reality show' nonentity came together...in a pub!

We wondered aloud where the real writers were; the people we knew on the estate who loved the likes of Irvine Welsh and Alan Sillitoe and scribbled stuff around their jobs and household responsibilities. Then, after bitching for a bit, we actually decided to get off our backsides and do something about it. Naming our venture ‘Byker Books’ (catchy eh?) we decided to educate the world about working class writers.

The whole idea was to give an outlet to writers of British fiction – I don’t know about you but I can’t relate to tales of boy wizards, ancient codes hidden in paintings or super-gorgeous teenage vampires - so we came up with a plan to put together short story collections that mixed new writers (the unknown and unhinged as we like to call them) and more established authors which we achieved with the ‘Radgepacket’ series - now up to volume six.

Fast forward to now and the great Kindle revolution has happened. This suits our aim of promoting and exposing new authors down to the ground. It has allowed us to publish edgier and more niche fiction without taking great financial risks and also allows us to promote books via the Amazon 'freebie' and 'countdown deal' options.

To date we've published ten paperbacks, around thirty kindle books, have a BAFTA nominee in our stable and more importantly have published over one hundred (100!) authors via our Radgepacket series. We're proud of what we've achieved from a standing start but prouder still of knowing that over the years we've encouraged and cajoled some people into print who didn't think they were good enough - there are at least four authors walking around today who became novelists because of our direct intervention. We've got drunk with our authors, learnt them new swear words and, with varying degrees of success, done our absolute level best to introduce them to the world.

And, despite being the mouthy little upstarts with our snotty noses pressed against the window of the big publishing party we're not invited to, we’ll keep on keeping on because we're Byker Books and this is what we do.

Happy reading...
