How do I make changes to an order I’ve already placed or cancel it?

How is the product made? Where do the materials come from?

My books are printed locally in Sussex at Pureprint, Uckfield which makes my books much more sustainable than those which are printed overseas. Pureprint is an ethical printer who prints on forest friendly and recycled paper.
