    Our quality fiction Danuta Gray at the recent launch of her widely publicised autobiographical novel Footsteps in The Snow and Sand on the horrors of Soviet occupation held at the Birmingham Medical Institute Christopher Orland addressing a literary society on his recent book Arena Books has now expanded the range of its literary output through the production of quality fiction some of which seeks to defy the marketing fads of the larger publishing corporations which have chosen to arrogate what they questionably claim is the popular taste In promoting new authors as Christopher Orland or Debra Baker or those with an established track record in fiction as Stig Dalager or Forbes Bramble we arrange presentations and readings of their work at literary societies Forbes Bramble speaking to pupils at the Colchester Royal Grammar School Our flagship fiction title is The Girl From East Berlin an epic fact based romantic novel set in the divided German capital between 1957 1961 with an Epilogue updating the story of the main characters to 2006 Currently our most prominent author Stig Dalager is the leading Danish writer poet playwright novelist and editor of a leading literary magazine whose works have already been translated into eleven languages Book launches Audience at the reception held for Stig Dalager s book launch at the Royal Danish Embassy in London arranged in conjunction with the German Embassy L to R Stig Dalager Prof Andreas Gestrich Director of the German Historical Institute in London Chair and Prof Richard J Evans of Cambridge University addressing a book launch for Two Days in July held at the Residence of the Royal Danish Embassy in Hans St London Book launches are rare events in the literary world today except for the launch of mass market titles usually ghosted on behalf of star quality personalities already known in the world of TV sport or pop music but Arena Books through their own strategic approach encourages authors to organise profitably their own launch events These have usually proven very successful in promoting sales on a local or regional basis and are always complementary to the worldwide publicity included within the remit of our standard publishing services Entering our titles for Literary Awards Perhaps of most significant in enhancing the reputation of our authors is our involvement with the many literary awards available such as the Galaxy Awards sponsored by a number of different retail chains those of the BBC the Booktrust The Society of Authors the Costa Book Awards the Guardian the Desmond Elliott Prize the Hawthornden Prize the Booker Prize the Duff Cooper Prize the Somerset Maugham Awards and many others Most Awards can only be entered by publishers on behalf of their authors but a further difficulty is that many are confined to specific gender or upper or lower age limits and adherence to the restricted margins of publication dates This makes it difficult for authors to identify the prize winning competitions in which they should attempt to participate and moreover to
