PURCHASING BROADSTONE BOOKS
BOOKSELLERS & LIBRARIES: Beginning with most titles published in 2015 (and some selected
titles in our backlist), you can order our books from Small Press Distribution as well as directly
from us. Titles carried by SPD will be listed as such on our website. For titles not available from
SPD, please contact us directly.
You can purchase our books by any of the following methods:
DIRECT FROM BROADSTONE BOOKS
To order online: Go to our Backlist page (or individual author/book pages), select the title(s)
you want, and click on the "Add to Cart" button to pay using your PayPal account, or credit or
debit card. Shipping fees and sales tax (KY sales only) will be included in your order.
To order by email, telephone or by post: Click on the "Contact Us" link above to find us by
any of these methods. We accept personal checks to "Broadstone Books" as well as major credit
cards. Please do not send credit card information by email. For credit card purchases made by
post or telephone, be sure to include your card number, expiration date, the security code from the
back of the card, and your billing address zip code (if different from your shipping address) in
your letter or voice mail.
If paying by check with your order, add postage of $4.00 for the first book to a single address, plus
$.50 for each additional book. Please note that these are domestic shipping rates, and international
orders (including Canada) will be more. Contact us for these rates.
Kentucky residents must also add 6 percent sales tax to the total for books and postage.
Booksellers and libraries are invoiced with shipment, pre-payment not required.
YOUR LOCAL BOOKSELLER
We appreciate your support for small publishers like Broadstone, and we also hope you support
your local independent booksellers. With this in mind, we encourage you to ask your favorite
bookstore to order (or better still, to carry) the Broadstone titles you are seeking. Beginning with
our 2015 titles and selected titles from our backlist, your bookseller may contact Small Press
Distribution to order your book(s). For titles not available from SPD, ask your bookseller to
contact us directly.
FROM SMALL PRESS DISTRIBUTION
Individuals may also purchase books from Small Press Distribution by visiting them online at
spdbooks.org. You can search for specific titles, or find our books by clicking on the "Our
Publishers" tab and scrolling down to Broadstone Books. SPD represents hundreds of small
independent and academic presses, so look around while you are there and check out our fellow
FROM THE AUTHORS
Many small press authors derive far more of their book income from direct sales than from
royalties, and most have web pages or social media presence where you can find out about
readings and events, and often buy books online.
Although most of our titles are available from Amazon, we do not encourage you to order from
them if you have an alternative (and you do, see above). They pay only a small percentage of your
purchase cost to publishers (which is why they often offer books at substantial discounts), which
in turns means less earnings for the authors. If you love books and the people who make them,
please help support them by buying direct or buying local as much as possible.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR ORDER!
