Image We are gradually offering all our titles on various electronic platforms. To display them, we have a new DOT COM url. You can reach it by clicking the .COM icon either here or in the footer of any page. Titles are being prepared for Kindle, Kobo and Google E-Bookstore. Most of them are priced around £1.99 but platforms and taxes vary. However, they are all substantially less than the printed versions.

Kindle is Amazon’s best selling e-reader.
Kobo is a Canadian company offering a wide range of platforms.
Google E-Books will also offer various formats but isn’t yet serving the UK.

Like them or loathe them, they are probably here to stay. One wonders what Caxton would make of it all…

New Directions

We have, I know, some loyal and generous followers. I hope they won’t mind this new direction towards adult fiction. Passionate and original, it’s a tale of human frailties set in the London Borough of Hackney, a hard-hitting story with a multitude of characters thrown into turmoil after a sudden, traumatic loss. Moving and disturbing, this is a powerful, memorable read.
