eMAKER EDITIONS is my independent publishing label, which I set up to publish certain books from my back-list where the rights have reverted to me, and all my future work.
Thus far I have published new editions of novels previously published by Lilliput and Picador – The Fabulists, The Water Star, and The Fisher Child, collectively known as The Bann River Trilogy. I have also published my selected poems,Tried and Sentenced, and The Coupla, a novel based on Irish legend for children nine years and over.
Next in the mix is a mammoth work on the Irish through history. Expected publication date late 2017.
A big thank you to all friends and supporters. You’re my life’s blood.
A NOTE ON THE BANN RIVER TRILOGY
The Bann river flows from Croghan Mountain on the Wexford-Wicklow border before it joins the river Slaney north of Enniscorthy. Along with Croghan Mountain, it features in all three of my novels published so far, The Fabulists, The Water Star, and The Fisher Child. According to Wikipedia the name Bann comes from the Irish An Bhanna, from ban-dea, meaning “goddess”.
