Below is a list of current supportive vendors within Australia. Thank you, one and all. Without your support the road to being truly unfettered in writing is nigh on impossible.

I urge you, the reader, to try and source the novels from someone on the list below if possible. They are all great bookstores and, put simply, they support me...so I support them.


A Tangled Knotwork is currently only released in Australia. The world at large still needs to be conquered...err...I mean visited benignly. Currently, I am planning a trip to do just that...the benign part...looking to meet likeminded people...who refuse, on principle, to talk the talk and walk the walk...

From what I have gleaned the autonomous industry is a lot more advanced in other countries and any suggestions for people to visit in areas would be appreciated. Printers, translators, and 'likeminded' distributors being amongst them. Also any local indie authors I can stop by and say hey to. I have a decent list worked up already of people I have read on or been pointed towards but the more the better I say! wwindies@tangledknotwork.com


You are, of course, more than welcome to purchase from the shop on the last page of the site. Likewise for people within Australia who do not have access to one of the vendors or just prefer to shop online.

My books will likely never be on the larger online book sites for the simple reason I would prefer people to buy from my friends below and the friends I make in the future. I like bookstores. The pricing is likewise...situated...no one is given unfair advantage over anyone else...even me. Hence, the lack of the larger buying groups who argue volume of stores and greater dispersion of product warrants discount whereby they can undercut everyone who doesn't have said volume. I say differently -
loyalty and giving people a 'fair go', like the people below did with me, beats volume and a few more sales any day of the week. I have no problem with the head office stores stocking the series at all, the more the merrier, but I cannot in good conscience uneven the playing field.

It is the least I can do to support both the indie stores and the franchisees who have been with me from day one.

Rince an bhais!
