Here’s how we helped a Staffordshire author bring his ideas to life “The Adventures of Tom, Jack and Joe”

self-publisher-dave-stoneWhen Dave Stone asked us to publish his collection of short adventure stories for children “The Adventures of Tom, Jack and Joe” , we were delighted to help.

After all, Panda Press has years of experience working with writers to bring their ideas to life. What’s more, we’ve printed everything from cookery books to local history and personal memoirs to novels.

Dave, who is from Stafford, Staffordshire, picked up his pen after drawing inspiration from the writings of famous children’s author, Enid Blyton.

The result is a book called ‘The Adventures of Tom, Jack and Joe’, featuring tales of mystery, riddles (and even the occasional haunted house).

Heather’s evocative illustrations really capture the spirit of Dave’s book, which finally went to print this month.

Dave tells us he’s really pleased with the result and is now looking for an independent book shop who may wish to stock it (as well as starting on his next project).

Well done, Dave!
