A pub landlord is celebrating his first year as owner of a publishing company.

Richatd Savage, who runs the Honest John pub in Chatteris, has been at the helm of Black Velvet Seductions for the past year.

He started with the company more than ten years ago as a book cover designer and writer. In his first year in charge, Black Velvet Seductions have produced 10 books, with another 10 in production.

Mr Savage said: “Although I am very much based in Cambridgeshire, the company has a long reach with editors and proof readers in the USA and writers from the UK, Europe, America and Australia.

“We receive manuscripts from around the world and distribute our books globally via Amazon, Barnes & Noble and numerous other outlets.”
