Buying Directly from the Printer

Now don't let me discourage you from buying my book. If you want to wait and buy it from Amazon or B&N, a sale is a sale and thank you very much. I won't be quizzing you on where you purchased it from, I'll just be so happy you bought it.

But you should know that buying from a retail outlet means the publisher and author receive considerably less money on the sale, a fraction in fact. This is because Ingram (the distributor) and the retailer take a HUGE percentage.

So if supporting an independent poetry press is something you consider important, please buy the book directly from the printer (Lulu). That way the publisher, Coconut Books, will receive most of the royalty.

And if you want to save on shipping and pick up some additional wonderful books published by other independent poetry presses, you can add some of these books to your order:

No Tell Books
Bloof Books
Dusie Press Books
DIY Poetry Web Ring
