For our many bookseller friends
Sure we sell many of our books on amazon.com. We have to, and we are glad that amazon exists, a critical bridge to readers all over the world, especially across North America and Europe.
But we love independent community bookstores. We also think independent booksellers should make more money. Bookstores have gotten used to a 40% discount off the cover or list price of the books they order. We don't think it's fair that tee-shirt shops on main street, or any other stores, enjoy a larger markup than bookstores. For that reason, if you want to order Western Eye Press books for your bookstore, we gladly offer a 50% discount—returnable. All we ask is that, if you do return any of our books, they really are still in saleable condition. Is it a deal? The easiest way for bookstores to directly order our titles is to call our Sedona office, at
1 800 333 5178.
But there's more to the story. We publish both 'trade' paperbacks, and also beautiful hardbound photography and art books. These latter, printed and bound on demand, are simply too expensive for us to offer in the usual wholesale-retail-bookstore environment. So the art and photography books showcased on this web site—our virtual online catalog—are only available to individuals who can order them directly via the online links on this site.
Finally, we know that for many reasons, bookstores often prefer to place orders through large national distributors such as Barnes & Noble, and Ingram. You will find our paperbacks in their catalogs as well, at their standard discounts.
Finally a big thank you to independent community bookstores, everywhere. You are more than important to us, to us all.
