Tiger of the Stripe is a small, independent book publisher based in the Borough of Richmond upon Thames in southwest London. Richmond is an attractive and historically-interesting town. It was known as Sheen (Scēon in Old English) until Henry VII built a new palace here in about 1500 and renamed the town after Richmond in Yorkshire. In turn, it gave its name to Richmond, Virginia. We are fortunate to have both Richmond Park and the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, on our doorstep, and Hampton Court is also close. We are less fortunate to be near to Heathrow Airport.
Tiger of the Stripe is not a subsidy or vanity publisher. That is to say that we pay authors, not the other way around!
We love traditional bookshops and we hope that as many people as possible will buy our books through them. However, the plain fact is that we sell more through Amazon than we do through bookshops, our profits are larger on copies through Amazon and, quite frankly, we wouldn't survive without Amazon sales. With this in mind, we have set up a shop page here. Currently, there are pages for the UK, US, Canada, France, and Germany. We also have an Italian page, but, for technical reasons, it doesn't have a shopping basket. We hope to add Spain and Japan, possibly even China.
The author and I were disappointed with the book in its present form so we have withdrawn it in order to make changes. I hope that the revised edition will be out in a few months.
