On the 24th March 2018 UCLan Publishing is proud to have hosted the first ever Northern YA Literary Festival. We were thrilled to work so closely with Waterstones Preston and Lancashire Libraries on what was a fantastic event. We’re passionate about the publishing industry, books and bringing authors to the North of England. With a footfall of over 2000 throughout the day we are keen to keep the momentum going, and are committed to hosting high profile events throughout the rest of the year.

Cold Bath Street UK Tour
After selling out of the first print run within the first week of publication we had to have A.J Hartley back in the UK asap. What better way to celebrate the initial success of Cold Bath Street than with a nationwide tour? A.J Hartley joined us early July and was just about still standing at the end of it when we waved him back off to the US, late July.
Thanks so much to all the lovely stores, booksellers and unique venues that helped us put this very special tour together. The book is going from strength to strength, and we’re looking forward to publishing the hardback special edition is October.
Here are some of the photos from the tour, including a ghost cruise on the Ouse, A.J in conversation with Barry Cunningham, an evening at The Gherkin, and the NYALitFest spin off – The Supernatural & Fantastical.
