Currently, email is the only way we can tell people about new books, discounts, etc. We keep hearing that people don’t use email very much nowadays, so we’re investigating other ways to keep in touch. We won’t stop using email, but we might start using other options as well.

If you’d like us to use instant messenger or a similar service to tell you about new books, discounts, etc, please let us know. Once we know what people prefer, we’ll look into setting something up.

Privacy Policy

Who we are

This website is owned and operated by Russell Phillips. Our website address is: https://www.shilka.co.uk.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select "Remember Me", your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We use MailChimp as our marketing automation platform. When you subscribe to our mailing list, the information you provide will be transferred to MailChimp for processing in accordance with their Privacy Policy and Terms.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Digital Reinforcements: Free Ebooks

Digital Reinforcements logo

Ebooks and paper books each have advantages. Paper books don’t need a special device to read on, but you can keep an entire reference library of ebooks on a phone or ereader. For many people, the ideal solution would be to have their books in both paper and ebook editions. However, the cost of buying the same book twice puts people off – far better to spend the money on another book!

Digital Reinforcements is Shilka Publishing’s answer to this problem. Every Shilka paper book now has a coupon code in the back. By simply entering that code at checkout on the Shilka website, the reader can download the ebook version for free. Shilka customers can now read their books in paper and digital formats, taking full advantage of both, at no extra cost.

The free ebook can be downloaded in several formats, so that it can be read on any device: Mobi (for Kindle devices & apps), ePub (for other ereaders & ereader apps), and PDF (for reading on a computer). Ereader apps are available for all computers, tablets and smartphones.

Get Your Free Ebook

To get your free ebook, enter the code given in the paper book. You may also enter your email address if you would like to be the first to hear about new releases, sales, and giveaways. You may leave at any time.

We have two news items to pass on.

This We’ll Defend is now available for free from most vendors.

Damn Close-Run Thing (large print)

A Damn Close-Run Thing is now available in large print. This is something of an experiment – if sales figures suggest that large print is in demand, then we’ll look at making other books available in that format. If you would like to see one of our other books available in large print, email us and let us know.
