That's what they're calling us and who are we to disagree?
The brains behind Fahrenheit Press have worked in the publishing industry for over 25 years and we figured it was time we created the publishing company we always dreamed of. We shoot from the lip and we call it like we see it - if that rubs people up the wrong way we can live with that.
Fahrenheit Press are a brand new publishing house founded by international publishing veteran Chris McVeigh.
"We're intent on doing things differently and we're building a publishing company that's heavy on curation and deadly serious about marketing."
After many years helping the world's biggest publishers build authors and create best-selling titles we've decided the time is right to step out from behind the curtain, set up our own publishing house and do things the way we think they should be done. We definitely won't be everyone's cup of tea but that's just the way we like it. If we're not ruffling some feathers, we reckon we're doing something wrong.
"It’s fair to say I’ve never looked much like a traditional publisher. I’m not suited, I’m not booted, and the nearest I’ve come to tweed is the Jean Paul Gaultier kilt I wore for a few years back in the nineties."
For sure our punk ethos runs through everything we do but don't mistake our tone for unprofessionalism - over the years we've helped shift literally millions of books for some of the biggest publishers in the world.
We've only just started out on this journey and we really appreciate all the support you've given us so far - it's been a real blast - we have no idea where this will take us but we promise you the ride will never be boring.
