As well as launching our books in bookshops, we often sell Handheld Press books at book fairs, conventions, conferences and AGMs, depending on the subject.
If you’d like to book a Zoom talk (no fee), email us.
Kate also gives talks about publishing and design to large and small groups, and runs workshops on how publishing works for aspiring authors (and publishers).
Have you discovered the Handheld Book Club?
It’s our online monthly salon where we talk books with special guests.
You can find out more and book your tickets here.
Book launch: Monday 22 March, 19.30 UK time
On Monday 22 March we will be launching our next two books, There’s No Story There by Inez Holden, and Where Stands A Winged Sentry by Margaret Kennedy, both magnificent forgotten works from the Second World War.
The authors of the introductions, Faye Hammill and Lucy Scholes, will be in conversation with Kate from Handheld, discussing women’s writing in wartime, and the forcefulness of truth that will not be censored. Join us! Tickets are free, and available here.
Due to the public health emergency most of our planned outings and events have been cancelled.
In 2021 we hope to be present online if not in person at EasterCon, FantasyCon and BristolCon. When firm plans have been made we will put the details here.
We are continually in talks to create more book stalls, events and talks: do revisit this page to see what has been arranged, or sign up to our monthly Newsletter.
