New for 2022
The poems of In Transit look at different ways of journeying, whether
that might be the poet revisiting cancer, examining his own changing
relationship to the non-human world, or elegising
some of the people that are now no longer with us.
These are journeys involving loss, damage, and redirection towards a
destination over which, in the end, we may have little control.
In Transit - A wonderful and deeply introspective collection of poetry by Scottish poet Gordon Meade.
Tom harbours a terrible secret.
By day, he works an office job and mourns the passing of his son.
By night, he exacts revenge on the man has imprisoned.
But things start to unravel when a chance discovery is made.
And madness is revealed to be a condition best not shared.
The chilling debut novel from David Rogers, now available for the first time in paperback.
Having survived a gruelling and prolonged ordeal at the hands of his father, Sean becomes submissive to a dark presence; a manifestation of what he experienced as a child that influences him in ways he cannot control.
As reality and fiction begin to bleed into one another, Sean is forced to accept the only truth he has ever really known; that despite his greatest efforts, he will always be his father's son.
THE MANGO THEORY
Fremont Border has been lost for some time. His girlfriend has become distant, his family apathetic; his best friend hasn’t changed at all. To cope, he’s relied on drink, drugs, and lucid dreaming. He wants to escape London. He he wants to go and sell mangoes on a beach.
Should he stay in London with those he loves, even if it means living with disillusion and regret? Or should he take after Orla and pursue a life that may yet save his soul?
GREETINGS: AN ANTHOLOGY OF POETRY AND PROSE.
Featuring work by some of the UK’s most exciting emerging artists, Greetings walks the thin line between love and loss in an examination of what it means to be human.
In this inventive and powerful collection of poetry and prose, the reader is taken on a haunting and affective journey led by more than thirty new writers.
An elegant, heartfelt collection of poetry and prose from one of London’s most exciting new writers – Stephanie Powell.
Strange Seasons offers a meticulously crafted and achingly beautiful perspective of life, love and heartache that resonates long after the final page.
A Short History of Castles in England – the second collection included within this book – is a work rooted in exploration, travel and the fleeting nature of time.
A fascinatng collection by an exciting new voice - Stephanie Powell, who is also featured in our Greetings anthology.
UNHEARD OF: POETRY, PROSE & PHOTOGRAPHY
Unheard of. Two words that encapsulate so much, and yet remain open to interpretation. Does Unheard Of represent the unknown, the disregarded, the undervalued? Or is the Unheard Of that which exists on the peripheries of our reality – myths, legends, curios yet to be uncovered?
Poetry, prose and photography from a diverse range of incredible new artists.
Gordon Meade with Jo-Anne McArthur
Written by accomplished Scottish poet Gordon Meade and illustrated with the stunning photography of animal rights activist Jo-Anne McArthur, Zoospeak is like nothing else you have ever read.
It is a journey of meditative, cyclic poetry that is somehow both repetitive and surprising, each stanza building on the last and shifting meaning with the addition of a single line.
This is a book that allows us to understand the plight of animals held in captivity throughout the world in a way that is artistic, reflective and poignant, each poem an experience rounded off beautifully by haunting and dramatic photography.
WHAT DOES A BABY THINK IT IS? And Other Questions
WHAT IS THIS BOOK?
A collection of questions? A selection of poems? A farting of thoughts? A flailing of limbs? Whatever it is, it exists.
WHY IS THIS BOOK?
The world is pretty wild. How do people keep going, every day? How do people really feel? What are we? Why are we? Do ghosts exits? What is hell? How do you know you have a forehead? If onions could cry, would you cut them? What week is it? Where do you see yourself in five years? What’s your name?
Overwhelmed and uncertain, Carl tried to answer a few questions.
FOUR SLICE TOASTER
Poetry and prose from absurdist London comedian Graham 'Oh Standfast' Goddard
WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT OH STANDFAST
Intensely likeable but at the same time
A genuinely surreal routine, packed with
Hilarious, inspired lunacy!
Offbeat comedy gold.

Enthusiastic Press was formed in January 2019 as a platform for unique, vibrant and engaging writing. Headed by an author with several years of experience in the industry, Enthusiastic Press takes an artist-centric approach - putting the writer at the centre of everything we do. There is no slush pile. Emphasis is placed on quality of work rather than how much money it might make. We sell our books at car boot sales, gigs, book fairs, pop-up stalls and online. We are a new movement - an independent publishing house with bite, incredibly proud of everything we have done so far and looking forward to a bright and exciting future.
