Leading local firms join hands for Hereford Books venture


Two leading local firms have come together to launch a new venture.

Production company Hereford Films headed up by Jonathan Sothcott has announced the launch of Hereford Books, a joint venture with publisher Caffeine Nights.

The first title under Hereford Books will be WE STILL KILL THE OLD WAY: ORIGINS, a 1960s-set crime thriller chronicling the rise of the Archer gang, popularized in Hereford’s cult We Still Kill the Old Way franchise. The novel will be penned by Garry Bushell.

Hereford Films CEO Jonathan Sothcott welcomed the partnership saying “Having enjoyed a successful relationship with Darren Laws and Caffeine Nights on a title-by-title basis, it seemed appropriate to cement the partnership with a new label.”

Author Garry Bushell said, “There is a lot of scope for dark humour and creating a bygone London that crackles with energy”.
