I’m so pleased to announce that direct ordering for print titles from Aradia Publishing is now available on our website!
Right now we’re offering a 10% retail pre-order discount on trade paperbacks of Gunsmoke & Dragonfire, which will run until release date, March 31. Pre-order discounts will also be available for the hardcover editions of Gunsmoke & Dragonfire and Once Upon a Time in the Wyrd West (coming soon!)
Thanks to our new distribution arrangement with Ingram, a problem that has long been an albatross around my neck has been solved. Namely, we can ship immediately to anywhere in the world, without me having to order a box of books up to Canada first, to then be shipped out again from here.
What this means is that I’m able to offer better discounts and maintain a more competitive price on the books I produce. And because Ingram has operations in the United States, Canada, Australia, the U.K., the European Union and elsewhere, this will keep the prices lower no matter where you are in the world. Even here in Canada, because they get a better shipping rate with Canada Post than I do.
To facilitate distribution, we’re also offering wholesale discounts to bookstores, libraries, gift shops, educators, etc. To apply for a wholesale account, please see our Wholesale page.
You may notice that the wholesale discounts offered differ between our two currently-available print titles. That’s because one of the books is more expensive per unit to produce than the other, and because we’re not Macmillian or Harper-Collins, we are forced to offer a lower discount on that book in order to keep our pricing competitive. Both discounts, however, are within industry standard.
And for those who prefer ebooks, the best place to get our e-titles is still our Amazon Bookstore. Purchasing direct from this link supports our imprint, because we receive a small percentage of each sale in addition to our royalties.
I’m so pleased by this development, because I know we’ll be more easily accessible to our readers! That delights me!
Keep watching this space for more updates as we change and grow!
Oh yeah – and go get your books! You don’t want to miss them, do you?
