NEW! You can now order paperbacks directly from me. I aim to ship them within 2 working days. I ship 1st class within the UK and International Standard everywhere else. This does not include tracking to keep the shipping costs reasonable in relation to the price of the books themselves.
Shipping is £1.30 UK, £3.80 Europe, £4.75 for North & South America, Africa, and most of Asia, and £5.05 for Australia, New Zealand and nearby islands. If you order several books, I may need to charge you extra to cover additional shipping costs.
If you are in Canada I will add GST/HST based on shipping address (saving you getting dinged for the handling fee the PO will charge). Outside of the EU you may be charged customs duty and/or sales tax on arrival.
The ISBN for the Paperback is listed so you can also order through your favourite local or online retailer (anywhere) though the paperbacks are Print On Demand so no-one will have next day shipping.
Do you want a whole pile of these to give to colleagues? Or to put in the orientation packs for new academic staff or post-graduate students? This is possible! I can even do it for ebooks. Contact me and we’ll work it out.

Finding Time for Scholarly Writing (Short Guide 2)
ebook published 16 April 2018; paperback forthcoming 1 June 2018
Finding Time for your Scholarly Writing addresses the problem of juggling writing alongside your other responsibilities. I identify three kinds of time: full days, longish sessions, and short snatches. In this Short Guide, I explain what kinds of writing you can do in each, and suggest ways of combining the three to ensure that you make the best use of the time available at different points in the academic year.
