Horror at Halloween

Check out our titles which are perfect for some Halloween reading!

A major anthology of new and classic supernatural tales set in mysterious East Anglia.

Lonely dunes and marshes; ruined mills and lighthouses; unmarked tracks that lead you into the unknown………

No wonder so many of the masters of the English ghost story, from M.R. James to E.F. Benson, chose to set their tales in East Anglia. Now, for the first time, the writer Wayne Drew has brought together the very best stories from the ghost-ridden counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire in one volume. Some may be old friends; others have been out of print and lost for years.

Meet the author – Jessamy Taylor

This month we bring you a short Q&A session from Jessamy Taylor, author of King’s Company, showcased in The People’s Book Prize Autumn Collection.

Can you briefly summarise your debut book, King’s Company.

King’s Company is a historical adventure story. William D’Amory is growing up in twelfth century England, during a time of civil war, when a chance encounter plunges him into a world of intrigue and betrayal. He meets new friends and dangerous enemies, and learns the truth about his father, as he is caught up in the fight for the throne of England itself.  The book explores the themes of friendship and betrayal, in a vivid and realistic historical setting.

Happy New Year


Firstly we would like to wish you Happy New Year and hope you all had a good Christmas and that you’re not sitting at home watching the rain and wondering how your 2016 will pan out!

1. You could write a book and let us distribute it for you…….we are waiting for your call!
2. Read a good book…does wonders for your brain and imagination.
3. Turn off the TV….reading at night settles your mind for a better night sleep than watching TV.
4. If you have children or other dependents….read to them or help them read to you.
5. Take a trip to your local library….it’s great to browse…take your time, you never know what you’ll find
6. The ‘Catch 22’ of January is trying to speed up a long month with new things to do or slow it down because of looming bills…better still read the book of the same name and grow your sole by the same measure!
7. When it’s dark outside read the Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama and feel the light.
8. Before watching a film where there is already a book, read the book first and see how it changes your perspective.
9. If you didn’t get a Kindle Fire for Christmas, get your duffel coats on and light one in the garden and read stories to each other.


10. Finally….Even the intellectual of readers will take most of January to plough through ‘The Luminaries’ but at least we can all blame it on the hangover of Christmas.
….OK that was 10, I got carried away!

What we can do for you:

Your book is your passion, and if you’re the author then you’ll have spent months, maybe even years, finishing it and if you’re the publisher then your authors are important to you so let us take care of the distribution and sales.

Book distribution is our passion. Vine House has been around for over 25 years and have gained a wealth of knowledge and contacts to get your book out there.
The book distribution process may be new to you, but we’re here to help with every step.

What our Publishers say…

“We have been a client of Vine House for more than 17 years and have had consistently excellent service from them for the whole period.” Dance Books

“To Picnic, ‘Vine House’ means Pauline Gosden, Julie McCarron and Sarah Squibb. They have been steadfast throughout a very difficult time for Picnic and I cannot rate them or the service they provide more highly. Efficient, always supportive and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. They specialise in sales and distribution for the smaller publishers – and I don’t think you can get much smaller than Picnic! – and do so with dedication, thoughtfulness and great kindness.” Picnic Publishing
