Buy signed paperbacks, direct from Taller Books!

We are very excited to announce that we’ve opened an Etsy store!

Here at Taller Books, we have boxes and boxes of paperbacks that we were planning to take to author events and conventions in 2020. We were looking forward to meeting you, our readers, talking about the Battle Ground Series, and signing books for you.

But 2020 turns out to be a horrible time to be selling paperbacks. All the events we’re planning to attend are likely to be cancelled, but we still want to get the books out there, signed and personalised for you. We don’t get to meet up on Etsy, but at least we can send you a signed copy – and hopefully we can meet at a future event!

When you place an order on Etsy, Rachel will sign paperbacks, personalised with your name, and we’ll post them to you. Secure payment is available via Etsy, and we’re aiming to ship every order within 3 days.

Paperbacks make great gifts (we’ll personalise for the name you send us). The Battle Ground Series is suitable for readers aged 13-103. Books 1-3 available now, while stocks last.

We look forward to sending you your signed books. Thank you for your support!

Join Rachel at Today’s Virtual Book Fair!

Join Rachel TODAY at 2pm BST (9am EDT / 3pm CEST) on the Twitter Live Virtual Book Fair, when she will be reading sneak previews from Battle Ground and False Flag, and running a LIVE Q&A!

We’re looking forward to sharing exciting sections of both books with readers all over the world! Please come and say hi, and bring your questions …

Huge thanks to Our Own Write for organising the Virtual Book Fair. Indie authors rely on book fairs and events to meet you, the audience, and this a great opportunity for us to get together virtually.

Stick around after Rachel’s session to hear readings from a range of authors and a range of genres, including our friend and neighbour MT McGuire at 2.30pm!
