• Frank Carney reads from novel Crimes of the Powerless

  • We’re publishing again

    We’ve had a quiet time here at The Word Machine CIC over the last few months in terms of publishing, having concentrated more on our community projects in the South West relating to memory and recording. Those projects are continuing, and have yielded some truly fascinating material which we will be assembling to present in the New Year and preserve by passing on to the City archives in Plymouth.

    But we’re now also moving back into publishing, and are delighted to announce that we will be publishing Frank Carney’s novel Crimes Of The Powerless CrimesCoverSmallover the next week in digital format across all global e-book platforms. Once the book is live on all platforms, we will begin to publicise it and hope that you’ll enjoy it as much as we do. It’s a novel that deserves to be read, by a novelist who should be heard. It’s a novel that casts a unique, jittering fluorescent light onto the city of Birmingham. Please read it.

    Genuinely, we hope that you’ll get used to hearing the name Frank Carney much more over the next 12 months.

    We’re delighted to be back in publishing mode, and have a second title coming out a week after Frank’s novel.
