We are absolutely delighted to be able to present our two titles for 1 August 2011 publication; please see the manifoldpress.co.uk website for further details!
RAVAGES by R.A. Padmos
Steve Gavan and Daniël Borghart are professional soccer players for Kinbridge Town – and also secret lovers. All that changes, however, when Steve innocently wanders into a city park and falls victim to a vicious gang of queer-bashers who beat him within an inch of his life. After that there are no secrets any more – and it’s a very long road back, for both of them, from there…
SOLEMN CONTRACT by Morgan Cheshire
Connecticut, 1720: In an attempt to give his family financial security, school master Jem Bradley hires himself out as an indentured servant – and thus begins an odyssey which will take him to the small settlement of Kennet and a burgeoning friendship with enigmatic blacksmith Will Middleton. Trouble is never far away, however, and when Jem is accused of committing a bloody murder his future begins to look very bleak indeed…
The names of these authors will probably be new to you; they certainly were to us! However we are delighted to be able to promise you two very satisfying reads in two very different genres which we hope you will enjoy reading just as much as we have here at our intergalactic mega-headquarters!

At the same time, in response to comments from customers, we’ve included more substantial text samples not only for these books but also for those which are already available. We won’t attempt to deceive you, we’ve found this difficult to do … and in some cases the samples still may not be quite long enough for everyone … but we’ll keep the situation under review and will obviously be very willing to listen to anything you may have to say on the subject.
We are hoping to have a complete revamp of the website some time in the next few months, too, and we’ll welcome your comments about that, also. This relates only to our main website, however, and not the online shop module which is a commercial product and can’t be substantially altered although we are trying to improve the look of it a bit. As we’ve mentioned before, we’re on a learning curve and continually striving for improvement.

Apologies for the lateness of this website update, we had hoped to make it available on the 1 July but life has been a little confused of late and we’ve had a bit of a struggle trying to do everything at once. It’s downhill all the way now, however, until 1 August!
