This superb book is the joint winner of The Saltire First Book of the Year. It’s also a Sunday Times bestseller and a Radio 4 Book of the Week. Threads of Life: A History of the World Through the Eye of a Needle by Clare Hunter is an evocative and moving book about the need we all have to tell our story. A perfect Christmas present. #sceptrebooks #saltireliterary #adventcalendar #booksforchristmas
Calling unpublished writers of Scotland! Delighted to say that we will be taking part in this again on Friday 10 January, alongside fellow Scottish agents and publishers. It works! Two books we represent which were published this year started out life as tweet pitches. Look forward to reading your book ideas in the New Year.

Wow, didn’t know about this.

Yeah. Took part last year and was astounded to get noticed. Writers, do this!

Our advent calendar continues with The Stalker by Alex Gray, the latest in her superb Lorimer crime series, set in Glasgow. ‘This highly readable book made me wonder: have we found Patricia Highsmith’s heir?’ Alexander McCall Smith #booksforchristmas

Congratulations on the new book, Alex! 😁

One of our favourite days of the year - when we recommend our books for Christmas to our friends and neighbours at Helen Lucas Architects over lunch. Books for children, fiction, non fiction, mince pies and clementines. #helenlucasarchitects #booksforchristmas
The JBA advent calendar starts with Sue Lawrence and her two new books : Down to the Sea, an unsettling historical mystery set in Edinburgh’s Newhaven. A perfect tale for dark winter nights! And A Taste of Scotland’s Islands, a magnificent illustrated culinary tour of the isles, from Luing to Shetland, a brilliant gift for any foodie. And, as from today, available for £10 (half price) at Blackwells Edinburgh. #sarabandbooks #birlinnbooks #blackwellsbookshop

I’ve just wrapped up A Taste of Scotland’s Islands for my sister’s Christmas but ssh...don’t tell her 🤣

I’ve read and would recommend both! 😊❤️📚

A first toast to the beautiful early copy of #TheLadyoftheRavens by #joannahickson, published 9 January by #harpercollins. A fine celebratory lunch for this terrific novel. #historicalfiction #toweroflondon #ravens
