DECEMBER BOOKS UK


DECEMBER BOOKS MISSION STATEMENT

What sets December Books UK apart from most publishers is their innovative approach to many books they release including style, size, content & extras. In order to compete against the big publishing companies you need to have a creative edge because you don't have the big bucks to throw at releases. Also with many self-published authors virtually giving away their books we need to stand out from the crowd and give extra value for money. All our releases have many 5 star reviews so far, so readers are finding our output highly refreshing. The covers tend to stand out and not look generic and the titles often grab your attention.

Our non-fiction releases are often limited edition and they sell out and become collectible as in the case of 'Voyeurs Welcome' & 'The Definitive Eleanor Rigby Story' or we have an expert at the top of their field writing the relevant book. One has already been re released 3 times due to demand in the case of Music Business Bastards and 'Memories are made of This (The Ultimate Retro Pop Quiz) has hit the Amazon top 100 twice.
On the fiction front many writers seem to follow a formula of what has gone before. We are reminded of Blockbuster Video's heyday when many films had the same Rom-Com theme or drug dealer/cop type affairs and when '50 Shades' came it out spawned more than 50 copies of books and films. So, our mission is to put out different type stories that are often genre defying and are most definitely original and like nothing you will have read before but still addictive page turners.
With the contemporary novel 'Adventures Of a Dark Duke; The Pin' (based on a true story) the main characters doesn't know where the pin will take him so the readers definitely don't know what's around every corner as the stories ever changing landscape suggests along with the Russian Doll element that features stories within stories and the characters are amongst the most original and colourful you will read about. With 'Over and Over' you can tell the author knows his stuff and shows the dark side of the music industry that is often hidden. With 'Mixing with the Unknown' you get the hybrid genre of Horror meets Pulp Fiction' with enough twists to make your blood do the Tango. With 'Kidnapping Time' you get one of the most original novels out there as well as one of the sexiest and Marilyn Monroe as well.
It's no surprise that many of the books are getting film offers as one reviewer said all have an epic film quality about them. You can read a bit more in-depth about each book below and get links to special prices direct from us although all are also available on Amazon.

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.
