This year we have set up an online book shop with all of our 2021 Authors and Event connections in one place. is an online bookshop with a mission to financially support local, independent bookshops.We believe that bookshops are essential to a healthy culture.

They’re where authors can connect with readers, where we discover new writers, where children get hooked on the thrill of reading that can last a lifetime. They’re also anchors for our high streets and communities. works with independent bookshops across the UK to provide online bookshop facilities to the independent booksellers. Together they are able to bring you your books, cutting out the big corporations and taking it straight to the local shop.

On our microsite, we have started compiling lists that make it easy to find the book you are looking for!!

In the process, the purchase pushes the business to the independents who have your book local to you and send it out, saving the planet at the same time.

Please pop over and check it out, get involved – if you have a book you think we should have let us know via the website supporting the local Independent booksellers and growing Writers and Authors readership is one of our passions.

    Hello – I’m a Brentwood based self-published Author. I believe that my current book ‘Entrepreneurial Sales’ has real relevance at the moment – given the huge amount of redundancies caused by Covid. Many may be thinking of starting up their own business but won’t have any real sales experience. My book provides a practical blueprint for being both more entrepreneurial and sales-savvy – so I would love to promote it to aspiring entrepreneurs across Essex.
    Kind Regards Paul Durrant
