Anthony Wayman releases “IGOR”, his well researched book about attitudes towards the Soviet Union

Wayman believes the portrayal of the Soviet Union during the Cold War period was usually unflattering yet, following the death of Joseph Stalin, the Cold War might not have been quite so cold had a more balanced approach been adopted in the West.

There was a genuine desire by the new administration for a better relationship. IGOR, an account of the experiences of a uniquely talented young Russian may serve to help illustrate this, though he recognises that some readers might dismiss it as implausible.

ShieldCrest Publishing expands its operation worldwide

Although ShieldCrest’s authors are from all over the world and its eBook sales have always been available worldwide, the UK has always been the predominant market for sales of hard copies.  One of the reasons is, of course, the cost of moving heavy paper around the world.

However, it has now established marketing and printing of its books in key locations throughout the world, including the USA. This makes it much more accessible to interested purchasers overseas who can obtain copies of ShieldCrest author’s books from local retailers with their books printed locally.

ShieldCrest is already established as the leading self-publisher for service, price and quality. This has largely been achieved because it publishes all its author’s books in-house and this move further secures its rapidly increasing dominant position in the market.

There will be a major announcement towards the end of the year of the company’s expansion into a new area of publishing so to ensure you don’t miss this and to keep up with all the company’s activities, its authors and new book releases make sure you add your email address and follow these announcements.

Indigo Lost – SR Summers


Indigo Lost was published last year and has seen a slow but steady start to sales, we have now entered her book in to the Sunday Times/Peters Fraser & Dunlop Young Writer of the Year awards for 2018 and would like to take this opportunity to wish Stephanie the very best of luck.

Indigo Lost is the first book in the Infinity Squared Series and charts the journey of a young girl on the run having witnessed the brutal murder of her mother.


Don’t think. Just run. When what lies ahead is less fearful than what lies behind, and west-coast unknowns less terrifying than east-side tragedies, there is no choice other than the one through the window at the end of a third-floor police station corridor. Without another thought, the girl runs. Her jump will take her to the street below, to encounters with humanity that will both shock and save her, to the girl she becomes the one who knows how to fight, but also survive, even shine, in the darkest places. She does not go unnoticed. The mob boss, the ruler of Vegas, has seen her. But she is not ready to be seen. And this time there is no corridor, and no window.
