CONTACT US

Thank you for visiting our Macdonald Book Shop Online. Please use the form below to send inventory and gift card queries. We try to respond within 24-48 hours to all requests.

For authors: 

NO WALK-INS ACCEPTED

NO SALES CALLS

DON’T BRING US COPIES OF YOUR BOOK. WE WILL REQUEST THEM IF WE WANT THEM.

We will consider any book – as we would a traditionally published one. Send us an email that includes information about you, a synopsis of your book, how to order it, your terms of sale, any review attention, and sales information, and any other information you consider relevant. If you are local, highlight that information. 

WE DO NOT CARRY CREATESPACE, or INGRAM SPARK TITLES (WITHOUT A 40% DISCOUNT), SO IF YOUR BOOK FITS THIS CATEGORY IT DOES NO GOOD TO SEND US ANYTHING.

We receive numerous requests each month. We look at them between October-November and January-April. We do fully read requests. We will only reply if we are interested and it fits within those months. Some months we may be interested in buying your books and other months we will not. It is entirely at our discretion and we will not provide any feedback to you. Again, this makes you the same as any author from a large press. 

Do not send your email to us multiple times. It will not get us to respond more quickly or endear you to us.

If we buy your book, we will contact you again if we want to buy more.

We have discovered store events are not highly attended. Those who succeed conduct a talk; read from their book, or walk around engaging customers. We do work in partnership with the library. We will contact you if we consider an event for your book.  

We only carry books and will not respond to sideline queries, i.e. jewelry, stationery, etc.
