Website upgrade 2024

Upgrading our website has meant moving our books onto another website platform and re-organising some of our reviews, articles, extracts and stories. This will mean if you have linked to a Kete article on your website then the url link will most likely have changed. To search for an article or book type in the name into the search field at the top of the site. Alternatively search in these categories.

New Books

Regretfully due to the complexities of the website build and migration a small amount of books and articles published since Kete’s launch in 2020 may not have migrated to our new website. If you notice something you like is missing please email Kete Books manager Kirsteen Ure at and we’ll endeavour to do our best to republish these.
