Welcome to Merlin Smallbone Books

There are 25 books to choose from here in all sorts of genres. Don't take my word for it, look at the free previews now. There are good old paperbacks, PDF and ebook formats.

Try before you buy. Absolutely free, no strings attached.

You can download introductory PDFs immediately. To buy a paperback, full PDF or ebook you'll be directed to the Lulu bookstore. (Don't forget to check-out if you put anything in your basket.)

April 2017: I'm just finishing off links to where you can buy books. This may take a week or so to complete.

Formats Wherever possible use PDF for electronic reading. Proprietary ebook formats such as Kindle are a last resort. Quite a lot of effort goes into the layout of books and ebook formats trash it.

All previews here are provided in instantly available PDF format. Don't expect the same fidelity with e-book format. On the other hand the paperback should look exactly like the preview PDF.

All paperbacks, previews and PDFs are A5.

Lulu on-line bookshop I'm a writer not a shopkeeper, so the sordid business of money changing hands is done at the Lulu on-line bookstore. If you see a book you like then you'll be whisked to the Lulu bookstore where you can make your order. If you want to order more than one title then Lulu will remember what's in your basket, but don't forget to visit the Lulu checkout when you're done.

Merlin Smallbone — Who he? I treated myself to a pen name because Peter Fox is rather ubiquitous when it comes to books. It all started when a bank kept ringing me up asking for a Mister Smallbone.

I live in Witham in Essex, England and only started serious creative writing in 2010, although prior to that I'd many written songs, technical documents and computer programs. That discipline meant I was confident enough to know what I was doing without having to start with the standard formulaic 'how to write a novel' books. Nevertheless without the face to face feedback from writers groups I wouldn't have got over the traps every new writer falls into. I write precisely during the day and devil-may-care creatively at night.
