Scottish independent publisher 404 Ink has sold the audio rights of its debut non-fiction collection, Nasty Women, to Audible.
The book, which comprises of 22 essays and accounts on what it is to be a woman in the 21st century, was published after raising over £22,000 via a Kickstarter campaign supported by authors including Louise O'Neill, Nikesh Shukla and Margaret Atwood. Atwood called the title "an essential window into many of the hazard-strewn worlds younger women are living in right now".
Nasty Women touches on a myriad of subjects including the working class experience, racial divides in Trump's America, being a child of immigrants, sexual assault, Brexit, pregnancy, contraception, and identity, among others.
404 Ink was launched last July by publishing freelancers Heather McDaid and Laura Jones. The pair also publish the eponymous literary magazine 404 Ink twice annually and will be publishing the début short story collection Hings from Glaswegian writer Chris McQueer in July 2017.
