The first thing to say about SuperNova is that it isn't about us. We know that sounds like an odd thing to say in a section titled 'About us', but the truth is, a good publisher should be almost invisible. For us, it's all about our books. We're simply facilitators, the platform to bring great stories to our readers.
Our aim is simply to bring you great books, stories mostly, told by skilled storytellers - in a nutshell.
We're new, so we're just finding our feet, but we want to be a little bit different. We want to find talented writers and help nurture them, by creating a community spirit in our team. We think this is the way to help budding authors become great writers, which in turn means we'll have more great stories to share with our readers.
When we're up and running properly, we will commit to sharing the profits of our labours among those who wrote, designed and helped to bring our books to the market. More on that, below.

Both of these stories have been written by Henry P Barnes, one from 2019 and one from 2018.
It's Christmas 1937, and the villagers of Oxley are struggling to make ends meet. For Peter Jepson, times are especially tough. Not only does he have few customers in his pub, he's also blown the family Christmas kitty on a horse that came in last. Christmas is shaping up to be a disaster, especially for those facing short-time working. John Swinney returns to the village after many years away intent on bringing people together on Christmas Day and making some of them face up to their demons. However, there's something odd about him - something the villagers can't quite pinpoint.
The Man Who Brought Christmas is the 2019 festive short story from Henry P Barnes. It's only available in PDF format, and can be downloaded for free.Download Your Copy
The Watcher is a slightly spooky tale, set in the midst of battle in the Ardennes Forest, at Christmas 1944. A young man is wounded in battle and taken in by a mysterious woodsman, living in a cottage close to the fighting. The events of that night, as the woodsman nurses the soldier back to life have far reaching consequences not only in Belgium, but back home in England, where the soldier’s daughter is also fighting for her life.
The Watcher is available only in e-book / PDF format, and can be downloaded from this site.
