Wishful Thinking


See in our bookshop

How we came to publish this one

Author Derek Corbett has been one of our regular writers so we were pleased to produce this collection for him.

The title

The title was Derek’s idea. Stories, anyway are in the realms of dreams and what if’s so ‘wishful; thinking’ is also very appropriate.

Some notes about the process

As ever the stories went through the three stages of revision. There’s always a balance in editing between producing a polished script and retaining the writer’s style. See my previous post.  

The cover

Our covers usually come about as result of a conversation between the author and the editor and then the author and our designer. Obviously this one screams “justice” and some of the stories deal with this theme. In a sense, anyway, don’t we tell stories in order to find out what’s going on, to measure the balance between good and evil?

Some notes about style

Clearly, Derek is a good story-teller and engages his readers. .

Who we think the reader is

These stories are ideal for the reader who like to be absorbed by a good plot and rounded characters.  


This book as not yet covered all of its costs but is selling steadily.

What else

As ever, we’re pleased to get out another collection of lovely stories.
