Is there a minimum order?
No. But, prices are most competitive at quantities over 300 copies.
Student prices are determined by the number of pages, permission fees,
and the number of copies ordered. Call us toll free at 800-535-2007
for an estimate of the student price.
How do I submit my course material?
State-of-the-art technology allows us to accept your course material
in any format, on any size disk, from almost any operating system. Our
flexibility allows you to send us your material "as is." It
might be "camera-ready," on a disk, or in need of typesetting.
Can I include previously published material?
Yes. Simply send us complete bibliographic information (author, title,
publisher, date, copyright holder, page numbers, etc.). We clear permissions
and pay all fees. Our experience with copyright clearance guarantees
that copyright laws are upheld and saves you precious time. (You can
include journal articles, material from periodicals, newspaper articles,
and book chapters.)
Do I have to sign a contract?
We have a one-page Publishing Agreement that our authors/editors sign
stipulating the quantity of books to be ordered by their bookstore.
What kind of commitment do I have to make?
Our Publishing Agreement is for one academic year.
Is there any cost to the school?
No. In fact, most schools earn royalties on custom books. The books
are ordered and sold through the college bookstore.
Will I receive a royalty and/or desk copies?
Yes. A royalty can be built into the price of the book. Complimentary
desk copies are provided for all instructors who teach the course.
Who holds the copyright to the book?
Unlike many publishers, Tapestry Press copyrights your book in your
name. This professional recognition is one of the rewards of authorship.
Do I get to see my book before it is printed?
Yes. Provided your material is received by the deadline, our publishing
schedule allows you to see page proofs before the book is printed.
How often can I revise my book?
As often as every year. To keep your course material timely, we allow
you the option to revise as much or as little as you like each year.
What is your return policy?
We have a 100% return policy. We simply ask you to call us to let us
know the quantity of texts you would like to return. There is no restocking
