#JustOneBook 2018

#JustOneBook 2018

On 29th May 2018, we asked for your help on Twitter – trading has been particularly challenging and we needed to sell more books to get our publishing back on track and to prepare our new list for our twentieth anniversary in 2019. Since that date, we have received over a thousand orders on this site, sold over 1,700 books and raised over £16,000. This has been an extraordinary event – humbling, exhilarating and occasionally exhausting – and we are sincerely grateful to you for your help in supporting our authors and our work.

Do please consider helping us again today by simply purchasing (if you haven’t already) one of our books from your local bookseller or from this website right now – or sharing this page on Twitter or elsewhere. And do share your pictures of our books when they arrive in the post – we love to see them in the wild!

We like to say that everything in independent publishing survives when a reader chooses to buy just one book – in fact, we turned this into our hashtag: #JustOneBook – a hashtag that, since 29th May, has had over 1.4 million impressions on Twitter. Thanks once again for being a part of #JustOneBook 2018.

Below are a selection of our new releases alongside some of our bestselling titles – but don’t stop there, this site is filled with truly great books, many by debut authors (because we have a commitment to nurture new talent). In fact, there are over 500 Salt books available from this site today.

Thank you for supporting us and we hope to see you at one of our many events this year, or our anniversary celebrations in 2019. We might even have some cake to share. We'll certainly have some books.
