Bird’s Nest Books is an indie publisher based in Fenland, Cambridgeshire, in the UK. We publish fiction and non fiction for adults, children and YA, with a particular interest in publishing books which feature traditionally under-represented groups and communities. As a social enterprise, we also work to bring more literary activities to our local area and to support and encourage new and emerging authors and illustrators.

‘Meet’ Ross Mountney

Well, sort of… virtually anyway! At the beginning of February 2017 Ross Mountney, parenting blogger and author, will be taking part in a Blog Tour. If this is not something you’ve come across before, you can think of it as a little like a book tour, only instead of physically appearing at venues, Ross will be appearing as a guest writer on other blogs during the first two weeks in February.

We are very excited about the wonderful bloggers who will be hosting Ross’s posts on their blogs during that time, including Becky from, Hayley from downsideup, Louise from louisewalterswriter and David from dadvworld. Huge thanks to them for taking part.

Ross will be talking about parenting, home education and writing – check the schedule below and be sure to visit the blogs and ‘meet’ Ross at each of them! Follow us on Facebook or Twitter if you’d like reminders closer to the time!

Blog Tour Dates:

Thursday 2nd Feb –

Friday 3rd Feb –

Saturday 4th Feb –

Monday 6th Feb –

Writing Advice from Authors Sue Welfare, Jon Lawrence and Darren O’Sullivan

In June 2016 we held ‘Prose to Print’, a one day workshop discussing the various ways of getting your book published. We were delighted to have local writers Sue Welfare, Jon Lawrence and Darren O’Sullivan join us to talk about their experiences and share advice and tips. We couldn’t miss the opportunity to have the session filmed so that writers everywhere could benefit from their insights so we asked local film maker David Johnson of DMJ Imagery to help out. He produced four videos – one of each of Sue, Jon and Darren’s talks, plus a fourth of their panel Q&A session.
