issue 1 – June 2022

Welcome to the first Magic Daisy Publishing Newsletter!

Magic Daisy was created at the end of October 2021 and so much has been achieved in our first 8 months. We have launched seven brand new books, we represent five authors and three illustrators, we’ve established ourselves on social media, helped countless writers with advice and guidance on the publishing industry, run a children’s poetry competition, appeared on local radio and we are now running a children’s short story competition to raise money for a local cause. In our first 8 months we sold 347 books – a figure we are hugely proud of.

MARVELLOUS MINDS – Our children’s poetry competition saw entries from all over the world including Australia, USA, China and India. The 45 winning poems all feature on our website with an individual audio recording and we are so proud of the fantastic book we produced which has been shipped all over the globe.

CHARLIE BOWN – Has released two poetry collections for children and was the lead judge for our poetry competition. She has been visiting schools and libraries to share her passion for reading and writing poetry.

JONATHAN HULL – Jonathan has released two hugely successful medical books to act as a guide for those who are having hip/knee replacements. His recent book Special Cases (short stories from a career as a medical surgeon) was launched at a charity event, raising finds for the Ukraine Appeal and Royal British Legion.

MAGGIE JAMES – We continue to support Maggie with social media posts and information about her novelised memoir which she self-published through Troubador.

ILLUSTRATORS – We are proud to showcase the talents of Richard Hull, Muireann Price and Chell Haizel on our website and social media channels. Chell will be illustrating the winning stories from the short story competition we are running.
