As our main line of books has now been taken on by SPCK Publishing, Crafty Publishing is going to be mothballed. It’s been a great few years, but we have to face financial reality and realise that Crafty cannot survive as a viable business any longer. The adult books published by Crafty will still be available through Amazon but we no longer hold stock. Fiona Veitch Smith is now being published by Lion Fiction and SPCK Publishing. Tony Glover is looking for a new publisher, and we wish him well with his quest. He’s a fabulous writer and deserves a much bigger platform than we were able to give him at little old Crafty. The Crafty Website and shop will finally shut down when SPCK republish the Young David Books in August. Thanks to everyone who supported Crafty over these last years.
