My Books

I have used my historical photograph archive and early travel guides (also from my collection) to publish over seventy booklets. They are for sale on Amazon as printed books from £3.99 and ebooks from £1.99. You can visit my Amazon ‘author’ page here and see my current titles below.

If you do buy one and enjoy it, please leave an appropriate rating on Amazon. Generally, I get 4 and 5 stars, which is very satisfying but I’ve had the occasional 1 star from people who haven’t even bought or read the book (Amazon’s feedback system needs some work!) and that really hurts, given the effort that has gone into each one. If you are disappointed, for any reason, please contact me and I’ll try to resolve the problem.

Quality warning! I have self-published these booklets using print-on-demand technology and whilst I’m pleased with sales and readers’ feedback, I have no control over the quality of the printed books. During the printing process, the photograph file sizes are significantly reduced and the resulting images are, in my opinion, a bit disappointing. However, the text is always interesting and they are priced to please. You can click on my current titles below. If you are a publisher and interested in my body of work, please contact me.
