Pricing

Pricing for author copies is per book. The cost is between the raw print cost and the wholesale price. Discounts apply to higher quantity orders.

Delivery is a flat rate — US $29 or AU $29 for any quantity.

Placing an order

You can place an order once your book is approved, and before or at the same time it is being distributed to stores. We will reach out to you via chat or email to share your book prices.

To place an order, simply tell us two things — how many books you'd like, and an address for the order.

Payment

Payment can be taken two ways — manual or automatic.

  • Manual: We email you a Stripe invoice with a link to a secure payment page.

  • Automatic: We — via our payment provider Stripe — send a charge to your payment method on file.

Delivery turnaround

Standard delivery is 7-10 days for paperback, and 10-14 days for hardcover. Priority delivery is available. This is 3-4 days, for a 15% total surcharge.
