Buying Copies of Your Own Book

Orders you place for your title are referred to as "Member Orders." When you order copies of your own book, you pay just the fixed and per-page charges plus shipping and handling. Use our calculators to see your per-book, proof order cost, and shipping and handling costs.

A few important notes about Member Orders

  • You pay for your books at the time of ordering.
  • When you purchase your own titles you do not earn royalties.
  • Sales tax may apply to your order.
  • Member pricing only applies to orders placed through your account for your own title.
  • The cost for a proof copy is the same as the cost for a single book, plus shipping and handling. You are asked to pay this amount when you place your order.
  • Member Orders are subject to our Return Policy.
  • We print the majority of book orders in our facilities. Additional print facilities may be used to ensure we can deliver your order on time.
  • Shipping times do not include the printing of your order. This will be calculated when you place your order.
  • Orders are shipped from the continental U.S. For non-U.S. orders, allow additional time for customs processing and delivery to areas outside major cities. Import duties and taxes may be levied upon delivery.
  • Priority and Expedited options are not available for U.S. P.O. Boxes.
