The book links are all to Amazon.co.uk, but the books are available from all Amazon stores as paperbacks, Kindles and are free in Kindle Unlimited if you want to keep them for yourself. Delivery varies depending on where you are, but if I order something from Amazon UK, it usually arrives here on Symi in about two weeks even in the winter. That’s it for today, I just wanted to get those links and reminders out there in the hope you might find something you’ve not read before, and so new visitors to the blog might pick up on some background reading. All my books and novels are listed on my Amazon author page here. Have a fun day.
