Our books can be ordered at any bookstore as our books are carried by the major
book distributors and wholesalers. Any library or bookstore in the world can order
our books. If you don't see Love Pour Over Me (New Book!), Long Walk Up, Portia, Love Has Many Faces or Spiral on the shelf at the bookstore where you shop, simply ask the clerk to order it for you. Thank you!

an average of 3 to 4 days to receive our titles once your order has been received.
Is there a way I can have the author autograph a book to a particular person
and include a special inscription?
Yes. Simply Email our Customer Service Department with your name, the date you placed your order
and the name you would like the author to autograph the book to (remember to give
the title of the book) and the special inscription you would like the author to
make out to the person.
Do you gift wrap your books?
Yes. We gift wrap upon request. When placing your order online include a special
note on our online order form requesting that the book (remember to give the title
of the book in case you are ordering more than one title) be gift wrapped. Also
include the occasion for the gift wrapping.

carry Love Pour Over Me. Our next book, Gada's Glory, is due out in 2016. Thank you!
I'm a member of a book club. How can my book club get copies of your books?
If you are a member of a book club, Email our Customer Service Department with the name of your book club, how many members
are in the club and how many books you would like to order. We are more than willing
to work with book clubs to get them a special discount depending on the number
of books they order.
I would like to have the author speak at an event I am organizing. How can I
contact the author to check her availability?
Email us with your contact information, the location, date, time and title of the
event and we will get the information to the author for you. The author will then
contact you as soon as possible.
Do you edit manuscripts?
No. We suggest our visitors and our customers who are interested in
having their work edited, refer to the Literary Market Place (LMP) which is in
the Reference Section of most libraries. LMP list credible editors, agents, publicists
and more. You can also request our Free writing tips sheet - see details on the
main page of our website.
Do you publish work by other writers?
We hope to do so in the future. Currently, we do purchase poetry for publication
in our monthly ezine, The Book Lover's Haven. We pay $50.00 to publish a poem
once (one-time rights) in our newsletter. We also have an annual writing contest
which we are thinking of turning into a semi-annual writing contest. There is
no reading fee to enter our contest. To request more information about our Annual
Chistell Writing Contest, please refer to the main page of our website. You may
also email us at email@example.com by typing "Request Writing Contest Guidelines"
in the subject line of your email and we will send you this year's contest guidelines.
Is the cost of shipping included in the cost of your books?
We never include the cost of shipping in our books. We always pay to ship our
books, Portia, Love Has Many Faces, Spiral and Long Walk Up to our customers. We
pick up that costs for our customers.
How safe is it ordering from you online?
We take extra precautions to insure the privacy of our customers. We absolutely
never sell our customers' email or snail mail addresses. All orders sent to our
offline office, which is located in Atlanta, Georgia, are handled in-house. We believe in our customers' privacy and online
shopping safety. It will always be tops on our list of business priorities.
