Meet the Member: Troika Books
Blog cover
Posted by IPG

1 What's your company called?

Troika Books.

2 What do you publish?

Children’s books—from picture books up to Young Adult.

3 What's the story of the company?

It began in 2013 with a book that landed on my desk from a Japanese illustrator called A Tale of Two Socks. It was irresistible.

4 How's business?

Getting good—but it has taken four years.

5 What do you enjoy about being independent?

Being free to work with like-minded colleagues and to choose my own path.

6 What do you think is the biggest single issue in publishing right now?

Anything that begins with the letter ‘c’: costs increasing, currency fluctuations, councils cutting out libraries, children not being given enough support in reading by government.

7 What one piece of advice would you give to a fellow independent just starting out?

Be brave. But make sure you are clear about your USP.

8 What do you get out of belonging to the IPG?

Contacts and friends. It’s early days for me but there seem to be connections everywhere through the IPG.
