Ian’s publishing imprint, Corazon Books, has published ten titles, with more to come later this year. Recent successes on Amazon include a Top Ten Kindle bestseller, a #1 in the Women Writers and Fiction chart, a #2 in the Medical Fiction chart, and Top Tens in the Romantic Comedy and Short Story charts. This year selected titles will also be available in print. Ian also runs ebook workshops for authors, and is a regular speaker at writing classes and conferences.
He produces audio for writers and publishers, and audio stories for The Story Player.
In 2010, he founded National Short Story Week, which aims to get more people writing, reading and listening to short stories. Already a popular and established event in the literary calendar, National Short Story Week is celebrated by many hundreds of libraries and schools, as well as publishers, reading and writing organisations, and countless individual writers, readers and listeners around the UK.
Ian has worked with words his whole career – as a writer, translator, producer and voice over artist. He frequently collaborates with writers, publishers, actors and professionals working in schools, libraries and the media.
During the past two decades he has worked on projects involving a wide variety of people from first-time novelists to household names from television, radio and film.
