Red Rabbit Rises is, above all, about a love of stories. Reading, hearing, and enjoying being absorbed in stories.
It is also about exploring their potential for learning, sharing and understanding.
We're at the start of creating a publishing company. This is a business. However, I would also happily call it a project. An experiment, focused on curiosity being explored.
We are starting with children’s stories, illustrated by local Inverness artists. The next step will expand to include stories for readers aged 14 and up in many genres.
Living with my head bouncing around deep in the warren of Red Rabbit Rises, I see the many chambers and tunnels in here. From this vantage point, it is a challenge to give a clear definition of what may or may not grow in here.
Some aims are already clear while some of the direction of travel will naturally depend on the path ahead. It is early days, and there is always so much potential when exploring stories. This satisfies me, living down in the rabbit warren. Hopefully there something here to satisfy a range of others, also.
