Welcome back to Make Mine an Indie; a series in which I talk about independent publishers and some of the brilliant books that they are publishing! Each Saturday I choose a different publisher to talk about, focusing mostly on UK based small presses but also occasionally venturing further afield.
This week's indie is one you may well have heard of as in recent years they have had books shortlisted for both the Man Booker and National Book Awards, as well as a host of other prizes.
As you can see from their logo, Salt was published in 1999 and operates from the North Norfolk Coast. They publish a very wide range of genres and have a series called Earthworks which promotes and supports the writing of indigenous people in the Americas. They also publish a lot of poetry and anthologies alongside great British and world fiction and nonfiction.
There is a ridiculous amount of choice on the Salt website and their books are widely distributed and available through major booksellers. You should really have a look for yourself but to get you started, here are a few of their new and forthcoming titles that I'm excited about:
