Tessa the Tank and the Classic Vehicle Show is our first children’s book, written and illustrated by Jen Phillips.
In a five-star review, Readers’ Favorite called it “an entertaining tale for children”, saying that the story “has a good message about teamwork and how each one of us has our own part to play in life”.
Tessa has her own website at www.tessathetank.com, featuring online games, free downloads, and pictures to print and colour.

The app is available on Google Play.
Shilka is proud to announce that we will be publishing Operation Nimrod in October. This is a well-researched account of the 1980 Iranian embassy siege, when six terrorists held twenty-six hostages at the Iranian embassy in London. It was finally ended when the SAS launched a daring rescue mission, as millions watched live on television.
Ebook copies can be pre-ordered now at Amazon, Apple iBooks, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and Google Play. Pre-orders are not available for the paperback or audio book editions, but both should be available at the same time as the ebook.
Due to changes in EU VAT law, we need to stop selling ebooks directly from the website. The direct sales facility will be removed in December.
We will still offer discounts to mailing list members, but this will now be done via Wargame Vault. Details have been sent to mailing list members.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
This year, we are hosting an online advent calendar. It is online now, but the windows can’t be opened until 1st December. Each day will have a different giveaway, discount code, or interesting fact. Make sure you check it every day – the giveaways and discounts will only be valid for a single day.
We have two news items to pass on.
This We’ll Defend is now available for free from most vendors.
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.
