Store FAQ

This page is dedicated to questions about buying my books direct from me, here on my website. Have a question you don’t see? Send me an email

Q: Why should I buy direct from your website instead of from Amazon or my local bookstore?
A: I’m happy wherever you buy my books! I understand Amazon is easy. And by all means support your local indie bookstore. But if you buy from my website, you'll be supporting an indie author. Plus my prices are better! Also, you can read my ebooks on any device, with any app, and they come with great support from BookFunnel, a leader in ebook delivery. BookFunnel even has its own app you can use, and any ebook you buy from me will show up automatically in it. Finally, if you buy a print book, I'll give you the ebook version for free. I always wanted big publishers to do this for me. I doubt they ever will, but I can! Just reply to your order confirmation email and introduce yourself. 

Q: Is ordering secure?
A: You bet! The checkout on my website is powered by Shopify, one of the world’s biggest e-commerce engines. 

Q: When will I receive the ebook I purchased? 
A: Immediately! Check your inbox for an email from Bookfunnel. If it's not there within a few minutes, check your spam or promotions folders. If you still don't see the email, use this page to contact the fine folks at BookFunnel. Their support team will get back to you within 24 hours. 

Q: When will I receive the print book I ordered?
A: It takes roughly 5-7 business days for delivery. Paperbacks are printed on demand and shipped by Bookvault, and hardcovers by IngramSpark, from their U.S. or U.K. facilities, depending on your location. It can take up to three business days for them to print and dispatch your book, and then three business days or longer for delivery. You will receive an email when your order ships. 

Q: Can I try a book before buying?
A: Yes! On each book's "full details" page, scroll down to the READ A SAMPLE button. Click/tap on that and a sample of my book will open, which you can read on any device. 

Q: I loved your book! How can I spread the word? 
A: Thank you!! I'm overjoyed. Here are some suggestions: tell a friend or family member; suggest it for a book group or classroom; post a rating or review, on my website and on Amazon; ask your local library to order it.
