When it comes to punk, Tezz Roberts has done it all. He’s been a front man, he’s played drums. He’s taught himself bass, then learned to play guitar. 

And if there’s an edge, Tezz has sailed close to it. Gone and leapt over it, just to see what’s on the other side. He’s made his way back, then gone and done it again. And again. And again. And again.

This book is his truth. Warts and all.
Enjoy it. It’s an incredible read.

Scrubber

‘Scrubber’ ISBN 978-1-7394509-0-8
Payment by Paypal

In the 1980s – thanks in part to weekly slots on ITV’s World of Sport – wrestling in the UK was huge, with packed events taking place each night of the week all over the country, and top wrestlers becoming household names.

In the wrestling fraternity, few came bigger than Scrubber Daly. In this book, he tells of working with Giant Haystacks, how he broke Big Daddy’s arm, and explains about receipts and date sheets. He talks candidly about the trouble he caused in the ring, and the troubles he had out of it.

This story will hold you from start to finish. A must-read for all wrestling fans.

Glyn’s relationship is crumbling, and she’s busy trying to write a book in the gaps between sub-editing on tabloids, and marketing stints scribbling copy about soft-close toilets. Everything is going wrong. And then seventeen working-class heroines from history gallop over the horizon…

This is an incredible book, a conversation between one working-class woman trying to make her way in 21st century London and the seventeen women from history who drop by to show her what can be done, if you put your mind to it.

Kiss & Make Up

‘Kiss & Make Up’ ISBN 978-0-9932044-1-8
Payment by paypal.

It’s the early ’80s in Birmingham, and Carl – a nightclubbing, vodka-soaked, drug-fuelled, New Romantic schoolboy – is desperate for the love his manic-depressive mother has never been able to give.

It’s the ’90s in London, and Carl – now a make-up artist to the likes of Margaret Thatcher – is stuck on a merry-go-round of clubs, Class A’s and casual sex. A dark family secret has haunted him for years but he can’t quite put his finger on it. It’s the new millennium, and now that his mom’s skeletons are out of the closet, now he’s finally sober, will they be able to kiss and make up?  

“Hilarious and heartening, you may need to retouch your mascara after reading.” Damian Barr

Marilyn Grundy is a little bit scared of Nancy Maddox, but then everyone is. Nancy may be seventy-nine, but she’s a force to be reckoned with, and even the local dealers tread warily round her. Who better to look after Marilyn’s tartan shopping trolley when she needs to keep it hidden away?

Nancy’s got a lot on her mind, though, and a cough that’s getting worse. Is she really going to be able to keep the trolley and its contents safe?

Set in her beloved Wolverhampton, Emma Purshouse’s debut novel is a gripping read, full of wonderfully observed characters.

Highly recommended.
