Regular communication

Generally it's best to send typescripts and other large files as attachments to e-mails, or to allow me access to your firm's FTP site, or to use free file transfer services such as WeTransfer or DropBox. My invoices carry the details you'll need in order to arrange bank transfers (usually the simplest and sometimes the cheapest way to pay me); if you have particular purchase order, invoicing or accounts systems, please let me know. Proofs and other hard-copy communications should be sent to:

Burden's Heath,
Upper Bucklebury,
Near Reading,
Berkshire RG7 6SX,

If you have courier or other arrangements that you prefer to ordinary postage, please let me know.


Have I forgotten anything?

In preparing this site, I've covered the questions that I get asked regularly, but I would welcome suggestions for improvement.
