NTN: Great reads from Britain’s Next Bestseller

2 Mins read

BNBlogo200NTN_2015_100We first introduced you to Britain’s Next Bestseller in last year’s edition of New Talent November. BNBS is a publishing company that uses new media to bring the widest possible audience to new novels across a wide range of genres – novels that could well become Britain’s (and the world’s) next bestsellers.

The premise is simple: UK authors can submit a completed, unpublished, fully edited manuscript here, and if the work gets enough pre-orders, Britain’s Next Bestseller commits to publishing it. The company calls it, “…a fairer, faster and more profitable way to get published.” And for readers it’s a chance to choose which books they really want to see published. More information can be found on the company’s website.

We think BNBS is a really appropriate sponsor for New Talent November, and we’re proud to have them on board. Let’s take a look at five of the books that they’ve published recently.

PrintDangerous Appointment by Dennis Kenyon
A helicopter lands on the chilly surface of Lake Michigan. Alistair Craig, who was just looking for a new life and a million dollars to start it with, finds himself facing a heart-stopping flight across the Atlantic to the Champagne Princess.
