1. Who are you guys?

2. Why are you doing this?

3. How do I buy a book?

4. Do you use DRM (digital rights management) to protect your ebooks?

5. I’m a writer. Are you open to submissions?

6. Why ‘Blasted Heath’?

7. You haven’t answered my question!

 


1. Blasted Heath is a meeting of brilliant minds, a heady mesh of sex and intellect, an unstoppable rock ‘n’ roll force in digital publishing… aka Allan Guthrie (crime author & literary agent) and Kyle MacRae (digital guy).

2. Because we want to sell great ebooks at affordable prices and help our authors, the Blasted Heathens, get the success they deserve.

3. All of our books are available on Amazon in all major territories, so if you have a Kindle or Kindle app on your tablet or smartphone, you’re laughing. The links are on the book pages. Most of our titles are also available on Kobo, Nook, iBooks, Google, Barnes & Noble, Sainsburys etc.

4. No, we prefer not to piss off our customers.

5. Sorry, not right now.

6. “Upon this blasted heath you stop our way / With such prophetic greeting” It’s from Macbeth. We rather like it. There’s probably a metaphor in there.

7. You haven’t asked it yet! Pop it in the comments below and we’ll reply.

    Worrying. Who is now going to publish Banks? And all the other black stuff? Surely it is possible to make money pandering to peoples universal cravings for sick humour, bleakness and Scottish-tinged filth?
    You must have been doing something wrong! Or digital publishing doesn’t pay?
    To change the topic, I always wondered why Robert Lewis was not in your stud farm, being leaned on to write fiction. And
    various other individuals.

    Via Ian Rankin, you guys opened a whole new world to me – absurd crime and drama in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

    I’ve just found a few books that belong in your stable via my public library – snarky crime fiction set in NI during the ‘Troubles’.

    I’m currently reading the second book, but couldn’t tell you it’s name or the author. The main character is Sean Duffy, a Catholic working as a detective for the RUC.

    Good luck in the future.
