Our authors may order copies of their books direct from Köehler Books. This is the cheapest way for authors to purchase their books, but these orders do not count as sales, nor do authors receive royalties on author direct orders. Authors must fill out the form below for direct orders.
Feel free to ask for multiple quantity options so you can see the volume discounts. Minimum order is one box. A box of books may vary from 20 copies for a large book, to 70 copies for a small book. We will send you a prices for all options you select, followed by a Pay Pal invoice based on the final quantity you select. You pay it with a credit card and we will place the order.
You can expect shipment within 10 business days of the placement of the order for softcover and 15 business days for hardcover, so if you request a delivery prior to those totals, your order will incur rush printing and/or shipping charges. Rush printing increases are nominal, while 2nd day or overnight shipping will be very expensive.
Printing Errors & Replacements
Occasionally books are printed with physical errors: torn covers, smears of ink, wrong interior. We apologize when this occurs as quality is important to you and to us. Since the books are shipped directly from the printer, it is the responsibility of the author or person in receipt of the books to send us photographic proof of the errors so that replacements can be ordered by Koehler Books. Saying there is a problem will not suffice. We must—and the printer must—see physical photographic evidence of the errors.
Things to do:
- Please take photos of ALL the books with errors.
- Shoot the cover and inside page with the error.
- Stack all the books with the same errors and show at least 5 with the error exposed.
- Indicate the number of books that need to be replaced, as well as the shipping address.
- Koehler Books will then work with the printer to ship replacements.
- Allow 2-3 weeks for shipping.
This option is for authors, sponsors and businesses who wish to purchase bulk orders and have them count for royalties and through the Nielsen Bookscan reporting system.
