 "A New Life Emerging from Early Retirement"

This is the definitive How-To craft book on using a Peg Loom to weave textile designs using a range of materials. Ideal for any age group, or those with reduced dexterity, it is a simple process that takes up less room than a conventional loom.

A companion book to the craft book on Peg Loom Weaving, this starts from the basics of 'wet felting' where fibres are set out and worked by hand until they shrink and matte together to form a piece of fabric. No special equipment needed and great for all ages. 

An uplifting Memoir of a Canadian who moved to live in the rural county of Ceredigion, Wales. Anita will inspire you as you she talks of the things she did to become part of the local community, including lots of her seasonal recipes.

Personal stories from POWs held by the Japanese during WWII, and from their families who were waiting for news of them. While the war ended in Europe in May 1945, it was still raging in the Far East until August 1945. With a brief history of events, it is a sobering account of the 'forgotten' POWs. Military History

If you fancy taking up the challenge of a long-distance trek, this is the book to help you put it into practice. Wye Valley Way is 136 miles, from Chepstow to Plynlimon, and can be done in 15 days with careful planning. Tips to prepare and train, notes on B&B's along the way, plus old paintings of Welsh towns you pass through. Time for a challenge?!

Aimed at small firms with limited expertise in-house, this is the ideal Checklist approach to help you set up a system to identify, control, and manage a range of risks to the business. The charts and tables are also available to download free (see additional resources page) to help you work through the book.  

This is the practical guide to planning for early retirement, full of tips and suggestions from Gary to ensure you get the best out of your opportunities. All based on the author's experience so an ideal starting point for your life plan

Operation Safe Haven, Gulf War, military history

Iraqi Kurdistan - New Horizons

This is the true story of how important the civilian volunteers were in helping to establish a Safe Haven for Iraqi Kurds during the Gulf War. A lot has been said about Operation Safe Haven being a military success, but nothing about how volunteers like the author, David, won the trust of the Kurds. 

Future features

The next tips on writing non-fiction will cover questions like - "what exactly do you want the reader to know/ think/ feel after they have read your published work?" This will help us to keep the focus clear.

Instead of meeting up with you all, talking about the books and answering questions, (as well as taking card payments of course!) we will have to rely on our Virtual Book Fair.

Also look through the individual book pages here on our website, which include  details about how to order, sign up for the Newsletter, and also use the Contact Form to ask any questions.
