- About Us
We offer many pre-order titles on the site and try to price these with a good up front discount.
Publication dates on books not yet released can change at the publisher's discretion and you're always welcome to cancel your order if you don't wish to wait, just get in touch via the contact us form.
We currently charge for pre-orders in advance, often we source difficult to find titles so this process is helped along the way by knowing there is a firm order.
Most pre-orders will be dispatched on, or before publication date and we will make every effort to make sure they arrive with you as close to publication date as we can.
You can browse pre-order titles from the Coming Soon page.
