E-Books with Extras

Scarlet Ferret is a new and independent DRM-free bookshop, selling hand-picked titles by selected authors in science fiction, fantasy, horror, historical fantasy, crime and more.


I love to read. And I love to share what I've read with others. Scarlet Ferret is an opportunity for me to do even more.

Hand-picked titles

Each book on Scarlet Ferret is one I have personally read and enjoyed.

As I mention on the About page:

"Algorithms aren't everything. Rather than the constantly promoted and safe best-sellers, I will help you discover gems you may never have otherwise come across. At Scarlet Ferret you'll know exactly why I've stocked a particular book, why I love it and why I think you will too."

These extras I keep mentioning

Scarlet Ferret e-books come with additional free content from the author or publisher.

Think of them as the extras you get with some special edition DVDs, Blu-Rays or computer games. That additional content about the setting, world-building or the making-of are the cherries on top of a wonderful creative cake.

With each book purchased at Scarlet Ferret, you receive exciting downloadable extras. It could be additional artwork or desktop wallpaper based on the book cover; it could be a recommended playlist to listen along to while reading the book; or even a map of the setting depicted in the story.

I might also have some exclusive content, just for Scarlet Ferret customers: some special author notes, sketches, or even recipes. You never know.

If, like me, you enjoy those extras with your stories, you'll love Scarlet Ferret.

What next?

Scarlet Ferret will launch in 2017, with a small selection of books. I'm in this to support authors and ensure they keep writing fantastic books. So, each book sale will earn the author 80% of the profit.

Books and extras will only be available in DRM-free formats and will always be available to download from your Scarlet Ferret Library.
