Let our authors sign and send your Christmas gifts

We’re back for the second year with a great personalised gift offer which we hope will take the headache out of Christmas shopping as well as delighting your friends and family.

Order a book by any of our authors below and they’ll inscribe and sign it with the message of your choice. They’ll post it either to you or the person you’re buying it for.

You won’t find a service like this on the high street or through Amazon, and we’re offering it at no extra charge.

What’s more, if you order more than one book by the same author, UK p&p is free*

Here are the authors taking part:

  • JOSH BERRY, comedian. His spoof diary Staggering Hubris, written in the persona of ghastly Downing Street special adviser Rafe Hubris, was the number one bestseller on Amazon’s UK Politics chart even before publication.

  • ADRIAN BLEESE, aviator. Above the Law, his immensely readable account of his twelve years flying on police helicopters, was one of our biggest sellers this year.
  • JONATHAN CRANE, novelist. His debut We Need to Talk is a collection of interconnected short stories, as intricatedly crafted as an Alan Ayckbourn play, set in a small English town on the eve of the pandemic.
  • MADELINE DEWHURST, novelist. Her debut Charity is a dazzling page-turner bouncing between contemporary London and colonial Kenya at the time of the Mau Mau rebellion.
  • TIM EWINS, novelist. His whimsical debut novel We Are Animals, a comic Homeric odyssey with shades of Jonas Jonasson’s Hundred-Year-Old Man, charms everyone who reads it.
  • JAMES KENNEDY, rock musician. His highly praised memoir Noise Damage is a likeable tale of hope and disappointment in the rock ’n’ roll business.
  • WASEEM MAHMOOD, peace activist. Waseem was awarded the OBE for his work setting up a radio station in Kabul after the fall of the Taliban. After this year’s events, his account of that experience, Good Morning Afghanistan, is hugely poignant.
  • JULES MOUNTAIN, adventurer. He was on the slopes of Mount Everest when Nepal suffered its worst earthquake in living memory. Aftershock is his story.
  • NICOLA NAYLOR, adventurer. When Nicola lost her sight, she refused to jettison her ambition to travel solo in India. Jasmine & Arnica is the inspiring account of her unique journey.
  • JOHN PAKENHAM, explorer. He trekked for more than 1,000 miles in the fierce terrain of northern Kenya in the 1980s, in the company of the region’s super-tough tribal inhabitants. In Walks on the Wild Side, he tells his story for the first time.
  • SUE RICHES, adventurer. With her daughter Victoria, she was a member of the first all-women team to reach the South Pole. Read their remarkable account in Frigid Women.

All those books are displayed below.
