Beware monsters, mermaids and mysteries this month at Inky!

With autumn upon us, it looks set to be a busy month for the Inky team.

This week we will be attending our first Literary Festival, and Zoe has been hard at work on an exciting bookish project which will be unveiled in the Youth Zone of the Isle of Wight Literary Festival. If you follow us on social media you’ll be in for a treat with a few sneak peeks all this week! The event is being held on 14th and 15th October at Northwood House. For details on how to book on either Zoe’s or Krissy’s sessions visit

We are delighted to announce that Zoe’s first colouring book Mysteries of the Deep is now available to buy.

Enjoy colouring in an array of beautiful and wondrous sea creatures. It’s a mysterious underwater world to immerse yourself in with mystical monsters and mermaids to treasure maps and submarines. Explore and colour in the pages and solve some mazes and mysteries along the way.

You can get your copy from our online shop, or why not pick one up at the Youth Zone where Zoe will sign it for you!

And don’t forget to pick up your entry form for Zoe’s colouring competition. It runs until 21st October and it’s not just for kids! Forms are available from Waterstones in Newport, or the Inky shop at the IW Literary Festival.

Join us at the Isle of Wight Literary Festival

We hope you have all been enjoying a lovely summer and lots of sunshine.

For many it is now back to school and back to work but there has been a flurry of activity behind the scenes at Inkyeverafter Press all over the summer. We are delighted to say we have been getting underway with our first ‘Inky’ titles ready for our official launch at this year’s Isle of Wight Literary Festival in October. We are hugely excited to be a part of the festival’s Youth Zone as well as being a part of the programme over the weekend.

Northwood House

For the past few years the Island’s Literary Festival has been hosted at Northwood House in Cowes and invites book lovers to enjoy the lovely setting of the Georgian manor house while enjoying all the bookish exploits the festival has to offer. There are lots of workshops to inspire and it is a great chance to meet authors you admire and if you are like us an opportunity to get a book or two signed by a favourite author.

The festival runs from the 12th to the 15th October 2017 and you can find more details at

Krissy our PR expert will be part of a publishing panel on how to give your submission your best shot alongside leading Literary Agent Caroline Sheldon and award winning author Kieran Larwood on Saturday 14th October. Find out more details and buy tickets here

Zoe, our resident illustrator, will be launching her new colouring book over the festival weekend ‘Mysteries of the Deep’. It will be published at the end of the month and is now available for pre-order.

Zoe will also be running a free ‘draw a monster’ workshop for children within the Youth Zone on Sunday 15th October and if you want to bring your kids along you can sign up here. Get your tickets while you can as spaces are limited!

We do hope you can join us over the Literary Festival weekend so please seek us out as we will have an Inkyeverafter Press book stand within the Youth Zone. You won’t be able to miss us as it will be in the form of a little vintage caravan!

We are always happy to chat about anything book related so do drop us a line anytime and will be back with more Inky news and festival soon.
