About us

In 2013 we launched Tinder Press as Headline’s literary imprint, a place where classy, intelligent writing could thrive. Our launch title, Maggie O’Farrell’s INSTRUCTIONS FOR A HEATWAVE, was shortlisted for the Costa Novel Award, and went on to be a Top Ten bestseller in hardback and paperback. Highlights of our list since then include THE INVENTION OF WINGS by Sue Monk Kidd, an Oprah Book Club pick and international bestseller, and THE LEMON GROVE, an e-book phenomenon which established Helen Walsh as a major talent to watch. In 2015 we are hugely proud to welcome bestselling, critically acclaimed author Patrick Gale to the list with A PLACE CALLED WINTER, and to be publishing National Book Award-winner Sarah Winman’s hugely anticipated second novel, A YEAR OF MARVELLOUS WAYS.

What these books have in common is a commitment to quality, and a passion for storytelling. We hope that you’ll connect with them in the way we have, and will want to feel part of the story.
