The BookBaby Bookshop is a "print on demand" supported bookstore. That means when you place a book order we will quickly print the book and ship it to you. Printing on demand is a green and eco friendly way of supporting the bookstore because we don't produce wasted inventory that has to be stored in a resource consuming warehouse and ultimately disposed of if not sold. You can purchase the best eBooks (or printed books) from independent authors and publishers all over the world.

If you're an author who wants to sell your eBook through BookBaby, please visit https://www.bookbaby.com

We provide authors that work with BookBaby a widget with which they can sell their eBooks. You probably arrived here through that very widget. Once you’ve added an eBook to your cart, you can check out — paying via PayPal or credit card. You can then download the eBook from your account, or, if you've logged in as a guest, we'll send you an email with a link to download that eBook.

Your eBook will be available as an ePub, mobi, or PDF file. You will be able to select your preferred format at the time you download the file. Some books are designed to be read by an Apple device only. Only the ePub file should be downloaded.

Most orders ship within 5 business days. Very occasionally there could be a delay if we are experiencing high volume demand for a hot title or if there is a machine issue. Please note that during the pandemic we will occasionally experience a delay due to illnesses.

Standard shipping is sent via UPS mail innovations with final delivery being made via USPS. Tracking information is provided when the order is ready to ship. You also have the option to choose other shipping modes by clicking on the Edit shipping button.

All international shipments ship D.D.U. (Delivery Duty Unpaid). Consignees are responsible for all applicable duties, taxes and import charges at time of delivery. Please consult your local customs office for an idea of how much these costs might be.

All sales are final. No cancellations, returns, refunds, or exchanges will be made after an order has been submitted.
