broken stories by reuben woolley

The proof copy of my new book, ‘broken stories’ has been checked. It will be available from next week at £9.50 from 20/20 Vision Publishing – email: rhysjones@twentytwentyvisionmedia.com

If you really want a signed copy you can get one from me but then you’d have to pay p&p as well (£2.00 / 2,50€). Message me or send me an email for bank (preferable) or PayPal details.

It’s hardback and 20/20 Vision Publishing have tried to keep costs down as much as possible while maintaining maximum quality. I only get one free copy myself! 😦
