FAQ

What happened to the Shop?

To simplify life, we moved all sales operations over to Amazon. The slight cost is well worth the convenience on our end. Here, take a look.

Are You A Publisher?

No. Well. Not really. In any case, we don’t accept submissions. Sorry.

Will You Sell My Stuff?

Maybe! Here’s what we’re looking for right now: books by and about underrepresented populations. For example, writers like Cassandra Khaw, C.B. Lee, Ijeoma Oluo, and Mariko Tamaki. If you think you have something that good, send us a query! (See form below)

What Is Your Return Policy?

Limited. Essentially, return it and we’ll pay you back based on the condition it arrives in. We cannot refund personalized items.

Are You Paid For Your Recommendations?

Only in the sense that if you buy something from the shop, the money goes towards our bills.

Why Are Your Prices So High?

We can’t match Amazon or the larger booksellers, and we’ve decided not to try. Our prices are based on a markup that will let us at least break even at most conventions. We keep our stock until it sells. It never gets returned, never debits against an author’s earnings.  Used books are great, but they don’t give anything back to the author, so we don’t sell those. We sell signed and unsigned copies for the same price, and if you see us at a convention, we’ll frequently offer extras or discounts on multiple item purchases. If you need a cheaper copy, we understand! Please consider visiting your local library; they’ll definitely benefit from the traffic, and the author will get more notice that way as well.

What About Ads?

External links and ads are provided with no expectation of any consideration or payment, and ALL links are based entirely on Leona’s honest opinion that the target is truly excellent.
