Like others, my 10 year old Daughter is homeschooling for the second time here in the UK. I wasn't even sure whether it should be spelt as home school or homeschool? For now, when homeschooling functions as a noun, it is still two words, without a hyphen. When it functions as a verb, it usually takes a hyphen, for example, my child is home-schooled. Confusing. I have never been a fan of homeschooling for reasons other than how to spell it but there is no doubt that some day homeschooling will become one word as an adjective and have broader acceptance. Given the Cambridge Dictionary already cites homeschool for verb, noun and adjective - I am going for the single word spelling.

Now that's out of the way, what I really wanted to bring to your attention is a short video that my Daughter produced when she had run out of homeschool work. She asked whether she could help me and I said yes you can how about helping me with marketing my books. This is what she came up with. It's a neat little video that I wanted to share regardless of the grammar!

Important Announcement


The companies that we work with continue to plan their response to the Coronavirus.  We are very grateful that this planning has allowed us to continue with our business during this uniquely challenging time. 


Given that we do not operate from a central office, there has been no disruption to our working environment and we continue to work as usual on a number of exciting new projects for publication in 2020/21.  

The Ingram Content Group, both our printer and distributor, are fortunate to be able to ship out of a number of large facilities around the world and where one has to shut down, they will transfer orders to another.  Their market leading service has a unique role to play in their ability to support rapid, single copy order fulfilment to reduce book travel and handling.


Finally, many of our books are available in electronic format either via Ingram direct or via Amazon which will allow your education and business to continue uninterrupted.

As the British Prime Minister said recently, 'Tis the season to be jolly but also the season to be jolly careful'.


          Happy Holidays everyone
