Hi. Congratulations! You have found my website. Let’s hope I’m the Paul May you were looking for. I’m the one who writes books for children. Follow the links at the top or at the side for information about me and my books.  

I have a blog about education, trees, music, cycling and assorted other things. It’s called As in the Long Ago.  My blog about my trip around the North Sea by bicycle in 2015 is North Sea Summer.  And I also write a post on the 6th of every month on An Awfully Big Blog Adventure. Please take a look.

FAQ: Where can I find your books?

book - 1 (4)I’m always a little surprised when people ask me where they can find my books. Here is my answer. The best place is a BOOKSHOP, but they will have to order the book for you. 184,000 books were published in the UK in 2011. (Source:UNESCO) This means that, with rare exceptions, books don’t sit around in bookshops for long. Last month’s books get replaced with this month’s new publications and, unless you suddenly become famous, your books will probably have disappeared from the shelves entirely a year later.

Most of my fiction books are still available, and if you can’t manage to get to your local bookshop you can find them on various online retailers. You know who they are. And you can get them secondhand on Abebooks, too. Most are also available as Kindle books. You can get them from the library as well, if you still have one nearby, and I’d love it if you did because I get 8p every time you borrow one. It doesn’t sound like much, but if 1000 of you borrowed one of my books I’d get £80. That would be great! I could go out and buy some books.
