Best Books We've Edited in 2014

We’ve edited a fair few books that have made it to market in 2014 and it seems appropriate in the dying days of the year to give the very best of them a mention. Have a look and see if anything catches your fancy; I’ve provided links to where you can buy them.

Note: Fiction Feedback has not been paid in any way for these honourable mentions: they're honest-to-goodness recommendations.

George Valentine’s Retirement Plan

A fabulous satirical romp, taking in the worlds of politics, PR and music with characters as varied and fascinating as the worlds they inhabit. Original and well written, this is a treat of a comedy with bite. A book you’ll be keen to recommend to your friends, and a debut author to remember.

By Laurence Cooper

Ignoring Gravity

A book about identity, and about why who you are makes a difference, whether you want it to or not. The story connects two pairs of sisters separated by a generation of secrets. Finding her mother’s lost diaries, Rose discovers she is not who she thought she was and has to adjust her view of herself and of those close to her. It’s not an easy journey for Rose, but it is an intriguing read.

Art of a Small Camera

We edit non-fiction as well as fiction, and this revolutionised my approach to taking photos on my phone and with my pocket automatic. Great results!

Limited Liability

The third of the Jenny Parker novels – a Manchester accountant caught up in a seamy world of money laundering, people trafficking and payday loans, not to mention kidnap and violence. If you don’t believe accountancy can ever be exciting, this is the edge-of-the-seat book for you, harnessed to a spiky, feisty character you really want to win through.

And finally, a thriller we’ve not edited but we’d like to recommend…

Jason Monaghan, writing as Jason Foss, has seen his archaeologist thrillers re-issued as ebooks by Endeavour this winter. They’re all good fun, and my stand-out favourite is Lady in the Lake. Called in by an insurance company to check claims that a discovered sword is Excalibur, cynical archaeologist Dr Jeffrey Flint gets sucked into a world of myth and folklore…and modern-day murder. A pacey, expertly plotted read for fans of archaeological mysteries and Arthurian devotees alike.
