Formerly known as Richard Brink Books, a publishing company founded by Richard Brink to publish the writing of Richard Brink, we have now changed our name to Fjara Press. We will be rolling out the rebranding in Autumn 2018.
Let’s start with a bit about Richard Brink and his writing.
Born and raised in the North-East of England, I started writing many many times throughout my teens and twenties – endless poetry, reams of screenplays and books full of scribbles and notes – all to no avail.
It finally took hold in my mid-thirties, after the pressure, need and urge to put pen to paper became too great for me to resist. I now take enormous pleasure from staring at a blank white page and watching it fill up with people and places before my very eyes.
This blog is focussed on non-fiction: commentary, opinion and review. It is intended to be in contrast to my fiction writing, not least because it is available free of charge. It is a way for me to share my view of the world with one or two people.
Publishing exclusively through Amazon Kindle, I write fairly short novels – so far, largely based on my travels across Northern Europe, particularly through the Nordic Countries. This resulted in my first series of novellas: Nordic Shorts.
Although we have never had plans to see any of these books in print, Amazon are very kindly helping us to provide paperback options.
