Trigger Press is new, but growing fast. Currently, we have two series: PullingTheTrigger and the InspirationalSeries. Our fiction imprint is now in development.
Our user-friendly recovery and support books help sufferers recover from mental health issues. PullingTheTrigger (PTT) promotes an innovative style of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) with a compassion-focused approach. The PTT series encourages sufferers to face their ‘trigger situations’ so that they can learn to accept their mental illness, embrace it, and ultimately control it.
Each book is written by a former mental health sufferer and their clinical psychologist. The books are divided into two parts. Part 1 tells the sufferer’s own story, supplemented by commentary from their clinical psychologist. Part 2 provides an easy-to-follow blueprint for recovery.
The Inspirational Series tells the real-life stories of people who have suffered with mental illness, but have overcome their adversity to live fulfilling lives. We work with new and established authors to tell all kinds of different stories. The one thing they all have common is the ability to inspire.
We tell stories that provide hope and encouragement. Some of these stories go to some very dark places, but they all capture a remarkable spirit of triumph against adversity. Our Inspirational Series authors have faced their mental illnesses head on, and gone on to live truly inspirational lives.
We’re seeking bold, creative and innovative submissions. Impress us with your visions, your ideas, and your desire to tell a story no one else can tell.
We’re not looking for fictionalised accounts of your life. We’d much rather tell your actual story in our Inspirational range.
Your story should still be about mental health issues in some way, no matter how obliquely. Indeed, one of our clinical psychologists will oversee every novel we publish to ensure that it presents a balanced view of any issues being discussed, referenced or alluded to.
