In our 2018 Black Friday Sale we’re passing on massive savings of 50% on all our titles. Here, Penned director Tom Chivers explains why he thinks you should take the plunge this Black Friday and #shopindie.

Support talented new writers

Indie publishers are known for spotting and supporting talented writers at an early stage in their careers. Your order directly supports the development of new writers and enables us to continue taking creative risks.

Cut out the middlemen

We can lose up to 60% of the retail value of our books through the complex publishing supply chain. This system might work well for large publishers, but it can be punative for small indies and those working in niche genres such as poetry. If you buy direct from our website, on the other hand, more of your hard-earned cash goes straight back to making beautiful books.

Speedy and environmentally friendly delivery

Every one of our online orders is packaged up lovingly in our small office in east London and dispatched within a day or two in a recyclable padded paper envelope. No warehouses or conveyor belts in sight!

It’s straightforward and secure

We use online payments system Paypal to power our online shop. Your order is secure (in 12 years we have not had a single breach or dispute). You don’t need to register for an account if you don’t want to – just use your credit or debit card.

We pay our tax

Because it’s what everyone does, right?
