Covid-19 Orders

Posted by

Like most of the book trade we have gone into hibernation due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. All physical bookshops are currently closed and the wholesale operations that supply them have largely shut down.

Our own distributors, Orca, are currently fulfilling any webstore orders that are made on this site. These are being collated weekly on Monday mornings and sent over to them then. All being well they should be dispatched within 24 hours by courier.

Amazon, Book Depositery and Wordery are also supplying customers direct, although their own supply lines are at times limited.

Either way, we hope that you are able to get hold of our books.

These are unprecedented times and the safety of everybody is paramount. All our publishing operations are on hold and we hope to come out of this crisis able to relaunch our brand and our frontlist. When this might be we are not sure. 

Thanks for your time, patience and support. Stay safe and keep reading!
