Onwards and Upwards?


This week CC director Ali Muirden blogs about some of our plans for the year ahead.
Following my re-cap on the key moments from last year, I thought this week might be a good idea to have a look forward to what 2010 has in store for Creative Content!

We’ve got off to a great start by publishing “The Babyjuggler” in January.

This great book, chock full of sensible, practical tips and advice for women returning to work following the birth of their first baby was inspired by the blog of the same name written by Sara Lloyd.

Sara has done a fantastic job in pulling together all the key issues that seem to be crucial in coping with work and having a family. Let’s face it, there are few people these days that can afford to live on one salary and most women would agree they need all the help they can get!

In February we are launching a new title in our speech series: Improve Your Speech – British English – Level 2. This sees us tackling those tricky areas such as the mighty R and explaining how to “do a Dracula”.... and I’ve not even mentioned the Schwa!!

Improve Your Speech: British English – Level 1 has been a fantastic best-seller on iTunes and Audible and has rarely been out of their language best-seller lists since it published. Huge congratulations to David Gwillim and Deirdra Morris for their success with this title.

Moving into March we have “A Short History of the World Cup” which will give the lowdown on the history of the football world cup from its inception up to the modern day. I was particularly amazed at a variety of facts and stats I discovered working on this title, especially the one about how some Brazilian fans actually committed suicide when their team lost!
The rest of the year is also full of really great books. I’m not going to give too much away too soon, but suggest you check out the website for information on a new history series we’ll be launching in April, some more titles in the area of Business Etiquette in the summer and some new “mini” speech titles which are due out in the autumn.

And that’s not forgetting the launch this Spring of our exciting new eBook fiction series from Creme de la Crime!

And we’re keen to hear from our customers! If you have any great ideas or suggestions then please do let us know! - AM
