Book Listing Terms and Conditions

Please read this information before making a payment and listing your book with us. Thank you!

By signing up to this service and making a payment, you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions:

Your Listing

  1. Your book/s will be listed on our bookshop page and linked to the site where your book is for sale. All commissions/royalties (and rights) from the sale of your books, stay with you. However, if you have your book listed on a site that we are affiliated with (e.g. Amazon), we will use an affiliate link, which means we earn a very small commission (at no extra cost to you or your customers).
  2. All new book listings are added to the top of the page, so your book will appear first on the list for at least 7 – 10 days. This amount of time is subject to change, without warning.
  3. In addition to the listing on our book shop page, your book will appear in the next release of our blog newsletter as one of the ‘latest book listings’, giving you increased exposure.
  4. Next to your book will be the description (supplied by you in the form you are required to fill out after making payment.) If no description is provided, one will not appear next to your book.
  5. Please do not forget to fill-in the form on the ‘List your book in our shop’ page, so that we know which book is attached to your payment. If we do not receive a form from you, we will not be able to chase you up, as the payment form does not include contact details. If the name on your credit/debit card is different from the name you enter in the form, please mention this in the description panel, in brackets, e.g. (Name on card is XXX XXXXXXX).
  6. Once you have made a payment and submitted the form, it can take anywhere from 3-10 days to process and publish your book on the site. Once your payment clears and we have received your form, we will send you an email requesting a book pic. You will either need to supply us with a book cover pic, or give us written permission to use the cover pic on the site where your book is for sale.
  7. If you have not received an email from us after 10 days, confirming your book has been listed on the site, please contact us at and we will get straight onto it.
