Bluemoose Books is a family of readers and writers. We re-mortgaged our house to start Bluemoose in 2006 to find and nurture new writers whose books engage, challenge and inspire. Our authors have been short listed and won national and international literary prizes and our books have travelled from Hebden Bridge across the Pennines, to London, NY, Nuuk, Bucharest, Moscow, Istanbul and are now sold in 56 countries. We believe that novels can inform, break down barriers and make us all a little more open to others' stories.
