You may notice when perusing Amazon for paperback versions of my books, that you see a little notice like this...
This occurs because I do not use Amazon's own print service. Instead, I use a print-on-demand company called Ingram Spark for all of my paperbacks. They will distribute my book worldwide, no issues. Book stores and libraries can order my paperbacks from their catalogue. Easy. Simple. Except on Amazon where they penalize me for not using their print service, hence a 1-2 month wait time (Note: this is not always the case).
But this post isn't to bag Amazon, not at all. This post is to give you alternatives. You CAN order my paperbacks online and not wait months to receive them. I've done some research and listed a handful of online stores in America, England, Canada and Australia that list my books - there are more out there, just go to your online store of choice and do a search you might just find me there :)
*Note: not all of the stores stock all of my books*
**also: you may notice some of these sites are offering books with old covers. That's because their site hasn't automatically updated with the newer version. I have no control over this.**
Most of these sites will offer a 1-2 week order period - this is pretty standard for print-on-demand books.
Where you can get my paperbacks
- Booktopia - scroll to the bottom to find my books, there is another Australian author by the name of Jane Hinchey who writes travel books...I know, cool right?
- Boomerang Books - same with this one, two Jane Hinchey's...I do not write travel books FYI :)
- Book Depository
- Angus & Robertson
- Better World Books
Some of these sites are global and will ship anywhere so keep an eye on the postage prices if you do order from an overseas site. Also, I have no control over the pricing, I keep my paperback prices as low as possible but need to cover production costs - retailers will then add their own markups.
And from time to time I will have available signed paperbacks on my website - although I usually announce it to my readers group on Facebook.
