ULVERSCROFT is a large print publishing house. Within the Umbrella title are FA Thorpe and Linford Romance.
Last year I submitted my debut novel Mariah’s Marriage to Ulverscroft for their consideration. I’d seen an article by Sarah Quirke on the Romantic Novelists’ Association blog, October scroll down, which offered advice on how to submit. Her acceptance arrived among the electronic Christmas cards and was a lovely surprise. Mariah’s Marriage will appear in the Linford Romance line next year, probably in February.
Large print was for children for such a long time. but as the market changed when people began to live longer and their eyesight suffered the effects of age, it came into its own for adults as well. My mum had damage to her eyes as a side-effect of diabetes and reached the stage when she couldn’t cope with ordinary print. Finding a box of discontinued large print library books at a sale was such a wonderful event for her. Now there are shelves and shelves of them in my local library: and all much read.
So, look out for Mariah’s Marriage from Ulverscroft early next year. In the meantime, it’s available as below:
Mariah’s Marriage is available from most online book shops. A continuation of one of its characters will be published shortly by MuseItUp, Daisy’s Dilemma.
