Muddy Pearl

Our office is currently closed, due to the restrictions and health and safety considerations of Covid19. Please don’t use our bricks and mortar address to write or call, as we won’t be able to answer. Email and contact forms are better! But one day soon, we hope to be back in our cosy wee office in Tollcross, Edinburgh (first UNESCO city of literature) in Bonnie Scotland.

    Translation rights

    We believe in working together across nations and continents! We are very keen to work with other like-minded publishers from around the world. As a rights-based publisher we have sold German, Spanish, Indonesian and Dutch rights, and have translated books from German into English. If you would like to discuss buying or selling translation rights we would be very pleased to hear from you. We attend the London Book Fair and the Frankfurt Book Fair when they are operational, and often visit other fairs.

    Please contact us using the form opposite. We look forward to hearing from you.

    Erratum

    We work very hard to proofread our books, but occasionally an error will slip through. If you have come across a typo, we are very sorry and do hope it has not affected your enjoyment of the book. We would be very grateful if you would let us know the title of the book, the page and line number, using the form opposite.
