Fahrenheit Press 1st Birthday Competition
In just one year Fahrenheit Press have been challenging the conventional norms of publishing and shaking things up in their own unique way. Oh and they have brought some phenomenal books to the attention of crime fiction lovers. To celebrate their 1st birthday Fahrenheit Press are giving me the chance to find one lucky competition winner who will receive a 2016 subscription to their Book Club – this means you will get a copy of all the books they release this year (a prize of more than 50 books).
So who are Fahrenheit Press and how do you win the books?
Well if I look to Twitter then their bio should give you a good starting point: “Crime Fiction Publishers. Bad seeds. Debasers. Renegades. Your mother probably warned you about us“.
A quick look to the Fahrenheit website and we get a bit more detail:
Fahrenheit Press are a brand new publishing house founded by international publishing veteran Chris McVeigh.
“We’re intent on doing things differently and we’re building a publishing company that’s heavy on curation and deadly serious about marketing.”
After many years helping the world’s biggest publishers build authors and create best-selling titles we’ve decided the time is right to step out from behind the curtain, set up our own publishing house and do things the way we think they should be done. We definitely won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but that’s just the way we like it. If we’re not ruffling some feathers, we reckon we’re doing something wrong.
How are they changing things? Well they managed to persuade Amazon to list a book with no title, no author and no description – the book was initially marketed on trust. They also managed to persuade Amazon to include a NSFW word in a book blurb (another first). Their Twitter feed is lined with some very frank exchanges, they share sales figures and for God’s sake never ask Chris about Millport as you risk him sharing too much info.
Right – you want to win some amazing books?
I needed a competition which would sit with the Fahrenheit ethos so decided it should be fun but also reflect their “bad seeds” approach. So I just need you to answer this – TELL ME HOW YOU BROKE THE RULES…
It can be funny/painful/awkward or inappropriate. If it is criminal I don’t want to know (remember the fun part of this question).
