Open Dyslexia: The Sequel! BOTH Press Is Back!

Dyslexic friendly fiction for adults by BOTH Press

Following their successful “Open Dyslexia” Kickstarter in 2021, which led to publishing eight dyslexic friendly fiction titles, BOTH Press is launching on June 7th 2022, their second Kickstarter “Open Dyslexia: the sequel” with more high-profile authors than ever before, lasting 30 days and finishing on the July 4th 2022

The line-up is full of many front-list authors such as Gareth Powell, J.M Alvey(aka Juliet Mckenna), Scott Oden, Snorri Krisjanason, and James Bennett.

Peter James will also be doing an introduction for the 2022 collection.  

BOTH aim to raise £16,000 + to publish 8 titles. As we know, Kickstarter is a all or nothing crowdfunding, so BOTH have set the first  target at 8,000 to make sure some of the titles published. This is just one step in the journey…

Looking to the future, BOTH will need in excess of £20,000 a year to keep publishing 8 titles regularly. All funds go toward the book production/ life cycle,  to make them high quality in production, written by amazing authors and easily available to all.  



Rewards For Supporters


To thank supporters, Both Publishing have created some exciting packages for contributors….

Books on the Hill is Alistair Sims. He is the manager and commander-in-chief of the bookshop (though his partner, Chloe and his mother, Joanne, who set up the bookshop with him, may disagree with this description ). Alistair is dyslexic and has a PhD in history and archaelogy.  He struggled  to read  until he was 13 and is passionate about helping anyone who has difficulty reading. He is the driving force behind BOTH Press and  has been involved in every step in this project, from finding award winning authors to contribute, the cover design, and the road to publication, including setting up for distribution. 

BOTH Press have published 8 amazing books in their 2021 collection. You can find them on the BOTH Press shop page.
