  1. My Day on the Shop Floor

    16 – 23 June is Independent Bookshop Week – and we’re participating!

    Over the course of this week, we’ll be sharing content about our favourite independent bookshops.

    To start off the week, our Commercial Director Alexandra McDonald blogs about the one – one! – shift she worked in a bookshop.

    Alexandra is a publishing trade die-hard who oversees sales, marketing, publicity, licensing, audio, ebooks, direct to consumer activity, export, distribution logistics, the Diffusion Prison Literacy programme and a couple of other things for SPCK. If she had spare time, she would like to spend it reading, yoga-ing and golfing but usually ends up spending most of it at the wheel of Mum's Taxi. You can follow her on Twitter at @alexmack2004.

  10. Living a Heroic Life

    Summer is often the time we wish for throughout the year and, if especially if you have kids, can’t wait to get away for some rest and relaxation. How do you spend your summers? Do you use it to jet off to the beach? Maybe you spend time at home with family and a barbeque. Maybe you take your children on an adventure. Before the summer comes to a close, we would like to introduce you to an adventure of a lifetime. (And it might even take a lifetime to complete). We’d like take you on a journey of a self-discovery with the greatest reward you could wish for, the hero’s journey.

    Based on what Joseph Campbell calls ‘the monomyth of the hero’, Richard Rohr gives us a tour of the hero’s journey in our book club feature Falling Upward. This journey is vital in building up a character to who we now know them to be. Breaking the journey down into five stages, Rohr uses this template to illustrate how the heroes of old achieved their successes. In this post, we will take a look at each stage of the hero’s journey and how we can apply them to our own lives.
