Garmoran Publishing, a new Lochaber publishing venture based in Strontian, is celebrating the successes of its inaugural two titles.

Only Fools and White Horses, by Colin Skeath, has already hit #1 in the Amazon chart for ‘Hot New Releases’ in books about canoeing.

A thrilling memoir based on the adventures and challenges faced by Colin and his nephew, Davis, as they made the first circumnavigation
of mainland UK in an open canoe, in which Colin illuminates for the reader the highs and lows of an epic journey shared with a close family member.

Deleted, by Sylvia Hehir, is a contemporary Young Adult (YA) romance and was winner of the T C Farries trophy. Deleted was recently listed in the Scottish Book Trust ‘30 Scottish novels to look out for in 2020’.

Fans of Sylvia’s first YA novel, Sea Change, published last year by Stirling
Publishing are currently placing their pre-orders of Deleted ahead of its release in May 2020.

An accessible read with a narrative that embraces small town prejudices along with themes of identity and belonging, Deleted joins Sea Change in bringing a fresh voice exploring the universal issues facing young people today, in a West Highland setting.

Both authors live in Strontian and are members of the Sunart Writers’ Group. With distribution by Vine House Distribution, their books are available through all usual booksellers, in stores and online, and directly from the authors’ websites.
