Books In Print…

 And not the BIP that all we who are/were librarians have used!


 When my books are in print, these are the agencies through which they are distributed via the world’s biggest printing agency – IngramSpark (Lightning Source).

It is possible to go to any of those retailers with the ISBN of the book concerned, place an order and the book can be ordered…


In fact, as I put this list together, I realised that the world is my list’s oyster and I felt privileged.

And just a little bit excited…

So over the next 12 months, every title of my current list of ten will be released (and in some cases, re-released) in print.

I think that in the world in which we now live, no activity can provide such comfort and release as the art of picking up a book and reading a story.


Enjoy your reading weekend, my friends.
