Time for a Virtual Book Fair

As we are still in some form of lock-down in 2020, many events have been cancelled including Book Fairs.

Instead of meeting up with you all, talking about the books and answering questions, (as well as taking card payments of course!) we will have to rely on our Virtual Book Fair.

So, look through the individual book pages which include  details about how to order, sign up for the Newsletter, and also use the Contact Form to ask any questions.
