About me

Hi, I’m Jessica, and I love both reading and writing (arithmetic, not so much).

I studied English Literature, and then taught English as an EFL teacher in Mexico, Italy, and in the UK.

I am currently finishing my second children’s picture book text for QED publishers, the first ’What’s the Time Wilfred Wolf’ having come out in October 2014. I am also training for the Brighton marathon 2015 – a good excuse to run along the Hove beachfront, listening to audiobooks. They certainly make the miles slip by…

We usually use our own ISBN numbers, as they are connected with our distribution via Lightning Source, which enables the books to be listed on book databases and sold on Amazon and other book retail sites. Lightning Source has printers in the USA which ship to Canada and also world wide. If you would prefer to use our company on a free plan you can print books in bulk using your own ISBNs and barcodes, and can sell the books directly from our website on a print on demand basis, also using the LSI printers in the USA. However they wouldn't be listed on book databases or sold on Amazon etc. I hope that helps, but let me know if you have any more questions. The best way is to email me directly at team@completelynovel.com Best wishes Jessica (more) and gained+3
