    Hi Virginia!  Thank you for sharing this with us!

    Congrats on publishing your first book at age 87!!!

    I checked your book details and I noticed you have it set to No for returns.

    Are you actively marketing this book to retailers? If so, they do require a Yes for returns.

    If you have any questions, please let us know.

    Is it correct that Return = YES only apply if you want brick-and-mortar book shops to have the book on the shelf?

  • Jana

    Erik - yes, that is correct.  If a publisher wants to have their book only on online retailer sites, then they can choose No for returns and a lower wholesale discount. 

  • Erik Istrup Publishing

    Paying for returned books can be quite costly.

  • Virginia Johnson

    Jana, I do have a return policy for retail bookstores.  Please advise.

    Virginia - in order for a store to purchase you will need to change it to Yes for returns.  This is so they can order through a major distributor. 

    Please let me know if you still have questions on this.
