Are all of the books signed? Yes! All of our books are signed. If the signature isn't on a page, but rather on a bookplate, it is noted in the listing. *We may be adding some unsigned books in other genres in the future.
Are all of the book damaged? Well, we don't like to use that word. We prefer "imperfect." While all of our books have imperfections, they are all perfectly readable.
How imperfect are they? That varies. Some suffer from poor binding during the bookmaking process. Some have bent covers. Some have been smooshed in the corners. Some may have been damaged in shipping and rejected by book sellers for their less than perfect appearance. Again, they're all perfectly able to be read and loved. The stories have not been affected.
How much does shipping cost? Shipping is $5 whether you order 1 or 100 books! If you order 1 book, it ships Media Mail. If you order 2+ books, it ships Priority Mail. There are no options to change shipping methods.
Are all of the books "normal" sized paperbacks? "Normal" refers to trade paperbacks that range in size from approximately 5"x8" to 6"x9". Most of our books are full-length trade paperbacks. However, we do occasionally receive smaller books called "mass market paperbacks" (think of grocery store shelves), and hardcovers. We also have a few novellas (shorter length stories). These will be noted in the listing. If nothing is noted, it's a full-length, trade paperback.
How long does shipping take? We will ship all orders in 5-7 business days. You will receive tracking information via email when the label is created. It may take a few business days for the tracking information to update, once the postal system scans your package. Remember, if you order 1 book, it ships Media Mail. If you order 2+ books, it ships Priority Mail. There are no options to change shipping methods.
Do you accept returns or refunds? No, we do not. All sales are final.
