The paperback version of Snowflakes and Shivers went to my publisher today. I’m hoping to get the proof back in time for the Gift Fair at Romsey Town Hall on Saturday 18th.
The ebook versions are also ready and uploaded, waiting for you to pre-order!

How is the paperback made?
When you order one of my paperbacks, whether via my website for the short story collection, or via your favourite retailer, who will get it through the Ingram distribution system it is printed just for you. This is ‘print on demand’ – POD.
I really love POD, because it means that several million trees aren’t cut down to produce books that sit on shelves waiting to be sold for years, before being discarded – probably pulped, but it’s still a waste of all those trees (plus the inks, which are generally vegetable-based these days.)
I found this YouTube vid from Blurb Books, showing how the books are made. They feature some very snazzy photo books, but the system is the same for my ‘trade books’. I hope you enjoy it.
