In 2011 the Lunenburg based publishing company will release nine titles in total, six of those titles will be children’s books and three are works of non-fiction. These nine titles are the first books outside of the bestselling Book of Everything and Book of Musts series.
Of the six children’s books, three are written by first time Atlantic Canadian authors. “We were simply presented with manuscripts that we couldn t turn down,” says MacIntyre.
On the non-fiction side, MPP Inc. is also publishing books in Manitoba with well-known Winnipeg Free Press writer Bill Redekop and a national title with Ottawa writer Arthur Montague. “We ve got a great line-up,” says MacIntyre. “It is exciting working with titles and authors that you believe in and that you can help bring to a wider audience.”
