So many people dream about being published, but so few actually achieve it. We aim to change that.
Quick Brown Fox Publications is something new and exciting in publishing. We're not quite a publisher, and not quite a literary agency, but somehow, we're so much more, and we're growing. We deal exclusively with first-time authors who have yet to receive the recognition they deserve and accept fiction, non-fiction and childrens, and anything in between. We only deal with people who are passionate and committed about their work, simply because if you're not passionate and committed, you will fail.
In 2009, Quick Brown Fox turned three, and we celebrated in style with four fantastic publications. We had Jeremy Piercy's Coffins, Cats and Fair Trade Sex Toys, Adam Kirkman's Better To Have Loved And Lost, and we created two new series with Diana Shaw's double-header Horace and the Stowaway and Edward And The Book Crooks forming the middle part of a Ghosts Of Cockleshore Bay trilogy, and Julian Cole's Felicity's Gate continuing the Rounder Brothers series. 2009, however, was not all good news. The collapse of one of the UK's leading high street book chains left QBF severely in the lurch: whereas larger publishers are perhaps able to absorb the cost of unpaid invoices, the same is sadly not true for us. This has left us with a very difficult decision - do we call a halt to this wonderful publishing venture, or do we find another way for authors to succeed?
We aren't ready to let this thing die, however, so we're finding another way to keep going, adapting with the circumstances that 2009 has brought us. We can't stick to the old model of publishing any more, so we're offering something new. Step forward Lively Dog: a customisable publishing experience that may just be perfect for you.
Please head over to the Lively Dog website for more information. Lively Dog is a sister company to QBF, which we hope will return to prominence in a few years, once we've recovered the losses for the recent collapse of one of the UK's leading high street book chains. It's been a great few years: thanks for all the good times. Our back catalogue is still available so keep buying, help us out! We'll be back, so we'll see you soon.
