“We love ideas to bits”
This means: At Castle Knob, we love the process of turning intangible ideas into slightly-less-intangible bits, in formats that can be made tangible: books, ebooks, pictures, movies, sculptures, websites. Some of our projects are commercial, and some are for the private enjoyment of our friends. If you have an idea that you would like to see made tangible, contact us to learn how.
The easiest way to buy Castle Knob books is through Amazon.com. Our products are always in stock and ship right away, and their purchase price can be applied to Amazon’s free shipping. The page for each of our books has a link directly to its product page at Amazon.com.
If you prefer ebooks, you can purchase them for Kindle, iPad or other readers from a link on each book’s page. You can also buy them for Apple’s iPad through the iBooks application, or through the Smashwords ebook service, in a wide variety of other ebook formats, compatible with practically any ebook reader or computer.
About List Prices
Each of our product descriptions shows a list price. This is the same price that you will see listed at Amazon.com (unless they’re running a promotion) and at the CreateSpace store. So which should you choose?
If you buy from Amazon.com, approximately 40% of the price goes to Amazon, a small amount goes to CreateSpace for the cost of printing and binding the book, and the author’s royalty comes out of the rest. If you purchase from Amazon after following one of our links to an Amazon page, we also receive a small commission on anything you buy from Amazon in that session, not just our works (maybe you want a new TV?).
If you buy through the CreateSpace store, approximately 20% of the price goes to the CreateSpace service, and of course they also get paid for printing and binding. The extra that Amazon would have taken increases the royalty our authors receive. And believe this: they appreciate it!
But Wait – There’s More!
If you want to buy multiple copies (as a reseller, or for your family, friends, book club, etc.), we can give you a discount and lower-cost shipping. Just send a message to [email protected], and tell us which title and how many copies you want, and we will reply with a special discount code just for you.
These arrangements are fair to everyone involved. One of the unique features of our publishing enterprise is the flexibility that you have in deciding how you would like your purchase price determined and how you would like it distributed among all of the participants.
