This is the one-stop bookshop for books published by Bridge House Publishing, CafeLit, Chapeltown Books, The Red Telephone and for other books written by the authors we publish.
Our four imprints use print-on-demand and we are proud of this:
- it is good for the environment - only books that have a home are printed, so there is no waste of paper or ink
- it is good for our books - they don't languish in warehouses
- it is good for us financially - we only pay for books we've already sold
- it is good for our authors - there is no financial pressure - we can keep a book in print if the author wishes and we'll take on another book if we like their writing
Each book will show different options for buying. If you order from us we can sometimes offer quicker delivery than the retailers, unless the retailer is holding a small stock. We offer free delivery on orders for five or more books.
Some authors also offer signed copies. Your business is then with them directly. Sometimes we supply a PayPal button for this. Sometimes we just provide a link.
Most prices are in pounds sterling. A few overseas authors may advertise signed copies in their local currency. PayPal will convert to your currency.
How to find a book? You should be able to look in the labels for author, title, ISBN or genre. Alternatively you can search the site.
We link as well to Amazon (your local one), The Hive UK, Barnes and Noble(US) and Booktopia (Australia) .
We love The Hive. They support indie bookshops and pay taxes in the UK. However they are scrupulously honest and say that our books are out of stock. Of course they are! We use print-on-demand. We ought to worry if our books were in stock. And The Hive gets "out of stock" books to customers, on free delivery, usually in under a week.
