There's a new book store in town...

The very clever people at Bookshop.org have set up an online book store, with a difference.


This is their official blurb:

Bookshop.org is an online bookshop with a mission to financially support local, independent bookshops. As more and more people buy their books online, we wanted to create an easy, convenient way for you to get your books and support bookshops at the same time.

If you want to find a specific local bookshop to support, find them on our map and they’ll receive the full profit from your order. Otherwise, your order will contribute to an earnings pool that will be evenly distributed among independent bookshops.

We also support anyone who advocates for books through our affiliate programme, which pays a 10% commission on every sale, and gives a matching 10% to independent bookshops. . Bookshop.org wants to give back to everyone who promotes books, authors, and independent bookshops! By design, we give away over 75% of our profit margin to stores, publications, authors and others who make up the thriving, inspirational culture around books!


How cool is that? By purchasing through Bookshop.org not only are you supporting the local independent book stores, but if you shop through an affiliate author's page then the author gets a few pennies too.


Take a look at their website https://uk.bookshop.org/ from there you can do general searches for all types of books or find your favourite book store to order from.


If you are interested in purchasing any of my books, then you can order via my online Bookshop page. The books are sent direct from a book store (not from me) but I get a small author percentage of the profits. It's a win win all round.
