  “These books are not lumps of lifeless paper, but minds alive on the shelves…
speaking to us.” Gilbert Highet

  New authors  
  Despite appearances, we do publish work by other people!  
  While we work full time at producing books, we recognise that for most people it’s not their main job. Whether it’s a hobby, interest or compulsion, researching and writing takes time, and putting together a book can be a long job. The results can be fascinating, however, and
often well worth the wait.
  A number of people have approached Loaghtan Books in the hope that their work might be publishable. (Are you reading this, Alix?) Others wait
in the wings while we try to coax them on stage.
  Hopefully, over the next few months these hard-working authors might
see their work in print.
Watch this space!’

More past & present

We have a couple of books planned for the
forthcoming year, with more in the pipeline.

We are delighted to be able to announce a second
in our ‘past & present’ series of local towns –
a third past & present book if you count the one
on the Manx electric Railway (which of course
we do!).

Following the success of Port Erin; past
& present
we are currently working on Peel; past
& present
. As before the old images are based on
Ray Stanfield’s spectacular postcard collection,
the modern photographs will be taken by George
Hobbs, and Sara Goodwins will be responsible
for writing the captions.

These books are fascinating to prepare and, from
the feedback we’ve received from readers,
equally fascinating to read. Publication will be later
this year.

Other publications are planned, but are still under
wraps, with copyright details to sort out before
we can reveal what they are. Watch this space!
