All books that are published by AuthorHouse are available from their online bookstore (also may be ordered by phone) at approximately 30% below the retail price. Copies are printed as they are ordered, guaranteeing that you will be purchasing a brand new book, often times for less that you would pay for even a used copy from a retailer or other source.
A warning to buyers: sometimes print-on-demand books are listed by outside retailers as 'rare/hard-to-find', 'first edition', publisher-authorized reprints', or even 'out of print', and listed as 'used', resulting in sellers charging prices higher than even new copies. Be aware that neither "My Marissa: Home Again in Oak Branch Woods"™ or "Jaya and Mina: New Ground in Oak Branch Woods"™ fall into ANY of these categories. The concept of print-on-demand is that the book will NEVER be out of print. Do NOT get ripped off! And if you see a suspicious listing for either of my books, please e-mail me. Thank you!
Please note that aside from AuthorHouse direct, the Oak Branch Woods novels are also available from hundreds of reputable retailers, selling only new copies and have been authorized to sell the books by AuthorHouse and/or Kimberly Shriner. Note that some reputable booksellers sometimes claim to have a certain number of copies of a book available (i.e. 10 or 100 available). This is a practice commonly referred to as "padding" (as told to me by another author of print-on-demand books), making it look like the seller has a large inventory. Again, print-on-demand books like the Oak Branch Woods series are not warehoused in this fashion. Do not pay more for a book from a seller claiming they have a limited number of books in stock.
I have heard from readers that booksellers often charge way too much to ship these books overseas (as AuthorHouse books are printed in the U.S.), as well as for the books themselves in some cases because of this. You can order books internationally direct from the AuthorHouse website (or by phone) for less shipping and at the AuthorHouse price (below retail). Please contact AuthorHouse for details, or order from the online bookstore @ http://www.authorhouse.com/BookStore/ or use the direct Oak Branch Woods links below.
