For US customers

August 1

Trade tariffs between the UK and the USA have increased the cost of posting from the UK to the USA. We would advise customers based in the USA that the most cost effective way to obtain our books - particularly the Erimem books - is through Amazon. That may change in future if the tariffs are dropped but for now, Amazon is the most cost effective route.

Erimem - Sacrifice delayed

July 31

What was scheduled to be the next Erimem title, Sacrifice, has had to be delayed due to Covid-19. Work commitments related to the virus have meant that the author of the book, Beth Jones, has been too busy to complete the small revisions. Rachel Blake has also been granted an extension for her forthcoming title for the same reason. Sacrifice will now appear in late September or early October. To fill the gap, late August will see the publication of Erimem - The Jewels of Cleopatra (and Other Exciting Adventures).
