Sassy Books is an exciting new imprint for today’s new generation of girl-power readers, but how would publisher Lisa Clark define her readership for the benefit of new writers interested in writing for her? "SASSY readers are gutsy girls. They’re passionate women who are looking for reading material that challenges, entertains and stimulates them. Titles that are coming out this year include some really gritty kick-a*s fiction, like The Perfect Suicide by debut author, Lotte Worth, and amazing non-fiction titles like Love Vs. Diet by Ani Richardson which looks at emotion eating through a brand new lens and How to Be Captivating by Shay Allie that is a brand new twist on self-development."

Her own book, Sassy: The Go-For-It Guide to Becoming Mistress of Your Destiny, is described as a “delightful cocktail of womanly arts, make-life-betterness and magickal chutzpah”. Would it be fair to say that she's interested in authors who can produce these heady ingredients in titles for the modern woman? "That would be the perfect scenario. Woman-centric, self-development with a spiritual edge is what Sassy Books is all about. We’re actively seeking new authors in this particular area, so if you’re writing a book that fits the bill, we’d love to hear from you. Fiction needs to be feisty and quirky, think chick lit with a kick; we actively encourage humour, especially when comes with a healthy dose of real life insight that our readers can relate to."

What sort of material is wrong for Sassy Books - and is there any advice for potential authors who would like to submit their proposal for consideration? "We’re not looking for the ‘next’ anything. We’re not looking for rehashed self-help or schmaltzy ‘boy saves girl’ fiction. What excites us is new talent, women who have a story to tell, and a message to share with the world. If you’ve got a really great book idea, start blogging about the subject; become known as the go-to girl for your particular area of expertise. Build profiles on social media, then submit your proposal. I want to fall in love with your book, so when you send your proposal infuse it with your own love and passion for the project – why are you the person to write this book? Excite me, teach me something, I want to know how my life will be better if I read this book. Most importantly, I want to know what your book will do to excite, stimulate and entertain Sassy Book readers."
