Apecs Press has produced its first book in the Welsh language Storiau Llynnoedd Cymru, Cysgodion yn y Dyfroedd. We are fortunate to have a fine translator, Juli Paschalis. She has a high reputation as a translator and writer, and we welcome her to our team. We plan to continue to produce books in Welsh as far as funding allows.
