NOTE: 7% ADDITIONAL FEE FOR FOREIGN SHIPMENTS: An additional 7% fee is added to all short run orders being shipped outside of the United States. This fee covers higher administrative expenses required for doing business overseas, and higher fees that may be charged by our printer to process foreign orders, including higher printing costs for using their foreign facilities.

ATTENTION FLORIDA RESIDENTS: If you are buying copies for resale, you must provide us with a SIGNED copy of your Florida Resale Certificate. Our Fax # is: 305-768-0261. Otherwise, we must automatically charge you sales tax on your order (7%). Please let us know in the comments box below if your purchase is tax exempt. If you are buying copies to give away (even review copies), your order is taxable. This only applies to Florida residents because BookLocker is located in Florida.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Short print runs **USUALLY** print and ship within 5-10 business days. However, there are delays around Christmas.

THIS FORM MAY ONLY BE USED FOR 10 OR MORE COPIES GOING TO ONE LOCATION. To order less than 10 copies, please use your book's page on the Booklocker.com website. These orders must be manually processed. Therefore, a handling fee is added to the shipping charges for these orders. It is cheaper to order books on this form for large quantities, but more expensive for lower quantities.

If you are ordering these books for an event or book signing, please allow at least three weeks to avoid stress and expensive rush fees. Please allow a bit more time during the holidays!!

Shipping/handling charges - For UPS Ground, if you're located in the lower 48 states, estimate around $8 for the first book and an additional 75 cents for each additional book for an average 150-page paperback. If you live on the west coast (i.e. California/Washington State), estimate more. Shipping to the West Coast is always more due to fuel costs and other fees.

WARNING: UPS Next Day Air is EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE (can be upwards of $200 or more for just 25 books). UPS 2nd Day Air is also expensive but quite not as bad as Next Day Air.

We're sorry but the printer is not set up to allow pick-ups. Their system is automated and packages are loaded onto pallets, and then loaded into waiting USPS and UPS trucks.

CURRENT AUTHOR PRICES: Author discounts for all books can be viewed here (pdf file - 76K).

SPECIAL DEAL FOR AUTHORS OF MULTIPLE TITLES
Yes, you can mix/match your order and still receive the quantity discount, PROVIDED THEY ARE BEING SHIPPED TO ONE ADDRESS. For example, if you order 25 copies of Book A and 25 copies of Book B, you will be charged the 50+ quantity discount price for all the books in your order. **TO GET THIS SPECIAL, TELL US EXACTLY HOW MANY COPIES YOU WANT OF EACH TITLE USING THE COMMENTS BOX BELOW. DO NOT COMPLETE THE ORDER FORM MORE THAN ONE
TIME.

SPLIT SHIPMENTS
You can order as many copies of your title(s) as you want, and even combine different titles into one shipment per the paragraph above. However, split shipments aren't eligible for additional quantity discounts. For example, 25 copies of a title going to one location, and 25 copies of the same title going to another location will only be eligible for the 25 to 49-copy quantity discount. It will not be eligible for the 50 to 99-copy discount.

SPECIALS/SALES CAN'T BE COMBINED
We can only offer one special per order. If your order qualifies for a special/sale, we will make sure you get the one that will reduce the cost of your order the most.

These orders usually ship within 5 to 10 business days, depending on the printer's backlog. Delays around the holidays should be expected.
