Author Dane Cobain

Author Dane Cobain started writing at the age of fourteen, progressing quickly from lyrics and music to journals, short stories, poetry and the first draft of an early novel. He studied creative writing at London’s Roehampton University, earning a bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing before embarking on a career in social media marketing.

Simon Palmer

Author Simon Palmer was born in the small fishing town of Whitby in North Yorkshire. His father was a lyricist and musician and, from the age of seven, Simon wrote lyrics and poems of his own before he developed an interest in drama and, upon attending the Lee Strasberg School of Method Acting in London, expanded his writing repertoire to include short stories, monologues, duologues and a pair of screenplays that were both sold.

Palmer spent several months researching his first novel, Lost Innocence, which included visiting an Australian inmate named Mitchell Blake inside the infamous prison known as the Bangkok Hilton. Released in the summer of 2014 by Spanking Pulp Press, the book tells the story of a pair of prisoners and their quest for freedom and, in the process, examines the dark, corrupt underbelly of the Bangkok justice system.

Eden Jones

October 29, 2014

For the past two years, singer and songwriter Eden Jones has been honing her sound throughout London, performing and delighting crowds at numerous well-known clubs and venues across the city. Her songs are unique and eerie, and her voice dances across the tribal melodies with an infectious joy. Lyrically, songs such as “Big Dreams and Dirty Fingernails” and “Beautifully Twisted” speak of hope and passion in a world that’s gloriously imperfect. Working alongside several talented producers, Eden Jones puts her unique stamp on each and every song she performs.

Eden is currently working on her debut album, recording in both London and Los Angeles.

Dylan Orchard

June 2, 2014

Author Dylan Orchard sees the world differently than most, with a eye for dark comedy and surrealist fantasy. A London native, Orchard is prone to bouts of enthusiastic swearing to mark moments of anger, joy and indifference. And most things in between.

In March of 2014, Orchard published his debut, Laikanist Times, a blending of humor, satire and sci-fi that explores the wonders and woes of religion, science, belief and talking animals.

Orchard followed that up in May of 2014 with his first full-length novel, Crashed America, which features guns, demons, backwoods mysticism and a Satanic Ronald Reagan, all set against the backdrop of an idealized America and the ominously looming End of Days.

Readers can learn more about Orchard and his works at www.dylanorchard.com.
