Hello to all my UK-based readers and UK bookshops! This is my first ever blog post on this site!! This is a bit too much for tweets, so I thought why not.

I'm taking part in #SignForOurBookshops, which means I want to send you some signed bookplates in exchange for supporting UK high street and indie bookshops!

#SignForOurBookshops is a national show of support from UK authors, urging people to keep buying through bookshops by offering exclusive signed bookplates to stores and customers. Over 200 authors are taking part so far, including Matt Haig, Dolly Alderton, Malorie Blackman, Michael Rosen, David Nicholls and so many more. 


  1. Buy one (or more) of my books from a UK high street or indie bookshop during the November/December lockdown!

  2. Email me your proof of purchase AND your name AND your address to osemanverse [at] gmail [dot] com.

  3. I'm happy to personalise the bookplate with your name and/or a message, as long as you ask for that in your email.

  4. I will send you up to two signed bookplates before Christmas. I can't guarantee how quickly I'll be able to do this, but it will be before Christmas!


  1. This will end on December 2nd! Make sure to buy your book(s) and email me before then.

  2. I must be able to ship your bookplates to a UK address.

  3. I probably won't reply to your email unless there's a problem, so don't expect a reply! Just keep an eye on the post!

Can you suggest some indie bookshops?

Of course! Most indie bookshops in the UK will be selling books online, via email, or over the phone during lockdown. Here are some suggestions for where you can buy my books. Some will have my books displayed in their online shop, others you will need to contact via email to place an order.


  1. If you are a UK high street or indie bookshop, I will happily send you a couple of sheets of signed bookplates for you to stick inside my books you'd like to sell!

  2. Just email me at osemanverse [at] gmail [dot] com and let me know where to send them.

  3. Again, the closing date for this is December 2nd.

Thank you everyone for supporting UK bookshops!!
