DECEMBER BOOKS UK


DECEMBER BOOKS MISSION STATEMENT

Most publishers mission statement will start 'We intend to put out the highest quality books. They are hardly going to say 'We intend to put out the lowest quality books'. It's taken as read the books will be quality. Now here is what we are about.

Firstly, the name, we were called December Publishing but then found out their was a U.S company with the same name so we changed it to December Books UK instead. The owners are born in December. The book company is a subsidiary to Department-f Film company (That why we are part of their website).

Our big release this year is finally out. It's the long awaited masterpiece of our number one author & Multi Platform Artist 'Russell C. Brennan'. Originally done as a film scipt the novel version has been getting preview readers hot under the collar for quite a while now. It's called Kidnapping Time.It's an exciting erotic Sci-Fi conspiracy thriller
. Descendants of H.G. Wells & Leonardo Da Vinci build a Time Machine based on their famous ancestors' works. Rather than go through history eliminating evil dictators they decide they'd rather make love to the sexiest women in history instead.
However, they get more than they bargained for as they get caught up in some of the most famous conspiracies of the last 3,000 years from Cleopatra to Elizabeth 1st and beyond, with Marilyn Monroe, Bridget Bardot, Jane Fonda, Princess Diana, The Kennedys and many more household names front and centre of some very interesting storylines. It also features a very poignant love story between Marilyn & Frank Sinatra as a core story.
The novel features lots of thrills and twists plus the author's trade mark tasteful ultra-erotic element. Although not a comedy story it has more funny moments in just one chapter than most comedy feature films, such as when Marilyn is kidnapped through time to this Century and even struggles to get a job as an M.M look-alike! The book is full of water-cooler moments that will leave you on a high with a smile on your face.
If you are already a fan of any of the characters mentioned you will love this book but always remember this is Science Fiction and although some things may seem familiar they are not always as they seem. History will never be the same again!

Kidnapping Time Novel (inc P&P)

MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THIS by Russell C. Brennan

Over Xmas 2017 this release hit the Amazon top 100 chart at no.62 proving a very popular quiz book.More details below.

When it comes to retro pop quizzes featuring the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's & 90's this has something for everyone as well as having something extra about it. There are easy and hard questions and many in between but the slant of this book is for you to also learn some little known pop trivia gems and fascinating facts that will impress your friends long after you have played the quiz. For instance, did you know legendary actor Clint Eastwood had a number one hit single in the UK? You to could win yourself £100 into the bargain The author of this book Russell C. Brennan has been a mad record collector since the age of 4, and over the years has absorbed pop trivia like most people absorb air. He also started as a DJ at the tender age of 15 going on to be one of the top international DJs by the age of 18.. He then actually married a pop singer and wrote and produced songs for her (full details in his biog at the back of the book) and he also started many music trends whilst producing acts and having over 300 releases as a record producer. He has featured in a few bands himself and written a popular book called Music Business Bastards (How to do well in the music Business without getting ripped off). He also managed a popular record shop where its key to success was his knowledge. But his pop trivia expertise knows no bounds as he even won a big PRS music industry Pop Quiz against industry experts which was all the more impressive as his two team mates didn't turn up for the final and he was one against a team of three and still won.

This book is now exclusive to KDP via Amazon please visit the page Here to get the Paperback or Kindle of the book.

Having already been innovative and trend setting in the music industry the owners of December Books are looking to bring the same vibe to their new book company. The first release 'Music Business Bastards (how to do well in the music business without getting ripped off) Contained something within the book that made us the publisher a lot of money even before the book was released.(Another publisher reliably told us no other published had done that particular thing we did before), That's what D.B is all about, trying out new ideas.
The Music Business Bastards book was advising artists to stand out from the crowd and so we and our main authors practiced what we preach with the book titles just for starters.

Our next book release again was unique and also stood out from the crowd. 'Voyeurs Welcome', again this had a memorable title but it was the fact that it mixed Iconic photos and award winning poems and popular song lyrics together to make a very collectible limited edition individually numbered book that really helped it stand out along with its stunning cover. It was also done as a top quality paperback rather than a traditional hardback
Of course limited edition photos books are nothing new. Also it's highly likely that a publisher somewhere has also chosen some poetic words to feature in an photo book before from time to time but what made this book unique was the fact that both photo/lyrics & poems were all by the same person, which is highly unusual.

This is because most artists excel at just one art. We are lucky enough to have our premier author Russell C. Brennan be an established multi-platform artist who is an established and highly rated photographer signed by Saatchi Art and an established songwriter with over 50 song releases (He is also a top record producer as well). We haven't even come to his work as an author yet. Also with this limited edition book was a chance to win a few prizes that were more than a bit unique. (A) to co write a song with the author for release and win a free photo session.

So this brings us to one of our main mission statement. To us the writer needs to be as interesting as the book and have colourful C.V. There are many great writers out there but many are as dull as dishwater when it comes to interviews or a back story. So we only sign writers who meet this criteria and have 3 identified but because Russell is our Jewel in the Crown we are concentrating on him at present which brings us to his first novel (there will be 3 released in 2017)
Many people will say it's hard to write an original story but when you have writer who has often lived the life, that experience is bound to be unique, therefore ticking that box, making it like no other book you have read before.

We all know by watching films that many are the same old thing with a slight variation. Books and music to can often fall into that category. We want to bring something new and original to readers and with Russell's debut novel 'Adventures of a Dark Duke: The Pin' we believe we have done this. The novel also contains extras as well, like free songs and a cash reward for one lucky reader of the book.

Another area we are looking to be innovative in is presentation of paperbacks and technology enhancements via kindles.
We are fans of the original slim paperback that are easier to carry around in a pocket or handbag but also want it to look stylish in regards to sleeves and text to give our releases a unique feel.

Our 5th book release 'Over and Over' will have a groundbreaking new element to the kindle version of the book that has never been done before.
So we are looking to do something different in all areas so if you want to enjoy the ride with us. please ask to be put on our mailing list to be informed about releases and free extras.
