Books/Publishing

 

Welcome to my books and publishing page.  As an independent publisher, I am passionate about selling e and print books directly to customers rather than through third-party sellers. I don’t charge P+P for my print books: you pay the RRP and no more. I use a secure payment system called Stripe which is specially designed for smaller retailers: you can be sure that your card details won’t be compromised. I offer a no quibble returns policy: if you are not completely satisfied with your book, contact me for a full refund.
