New publishing house Rickshaw Publishing has signed up a further five authors, having announced its launch list of three titles earlier in the year

The west-London based publisher plans to release eight to 10 titles next year, across fiction, non-fiction and teen titles, and build on that in future years. Rickshaw Publishing m.d. and founder Paul Michaelides said: "We've received over 600 submissions and we are working on eight projects . . . The emphasis is very much on quality."

Rickshaw's launch titles, all released this September, are Covering McKellen: An Understudy's Tale by David Weston (1st September), an account of Weston's time understudying Ian McKellen as King Lear at the Royal Shakespeare Company; debut novel Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes by Sue Watson (8th September); and teen title Ellie Foster's English Coursework by Tina Orr Munro (1st September).

The publisher has signed world rights, directly from the authors, in five new projects: YA novel Moderate Violence by Veronica Bennett; a scientific thriller provisionally titled NH3 by Stanley Salmons; Steevan Glover's novel, with the working title of The Frog and the Scorpion, initially published by platform You Write On; crime novel Lapland by Adam Death; and a compendium of stories on body image published with charity Body Gossip.
