The excitement of new books never gets old for us here at Toppsta! And so, when we hear about new publishing imprints launching that are searching for undiscovered authors and illustrators, we want to hear all about them.
We asked Associate Publisher Felicity Alexander to tell us all about her latest project - new imprint Welbeck Flame, which launches this autumn.
In her guest blog, she tells us what it's like to be a publisher, her plans for Welbeck Flame, and fills us in about the first book on her list The Boy Behind The Wall which is already proving popular with our readers.
"‘The Boy Behind The Wall’ is by far one of the best books I've read... exceptionally good and it deserves a 5/5"

"It was adventurous and scary and it felt like a spy film at times. I'm so glad I stuck with it because it ended up being my favourite book!"

"This book kept me on the edge of my seat... I liked the twist that the story took and ended very differently to what I thought it would."
Rhiannon, secondary school pupil
"It contains friendship, action, danger, and spy tactics, which is really cool. We were reading this book as a group, but I asked if I could read it over the weekend because I really needed to know what was going to happen."
Leia, secondary school pupil
"I would recommend this book to all my friends."
Leo, secondary school pupil
"there was never a dull moment and it was really tense, especially when the plot went a different way to what I was expecting!"
