At Fairhaven Press, we want our customers to be satisfied with their purchases. In most cases, Fairhaven Press will accept returns within 30 days of purchase. Some restrictions do apply. Please email email@example.com to request a return authorization and more details. We don't accept returns on bulk orders, so please check with us about getting a sample copy before making a bulk order.
Rules on sales taxes for US companies is a rapidly changing field. We intend to fully comply with any new tax laws that are passed. For right now, we are only subject to an 8.25% sales tax rates for books shipped to Texas addresses. That will likely change in coming years.
Bulk Orders, Bookstores and Review Copies
The number of review copies we offer are very limited but will generally be provided to credentialed media, faculty and others upon request. Please let us know if you will accept an electronic review copy instead of a print copy when you put in your request.
We do offer standard publishing terms on a limited basis to brick and mortar independent bookstores. Bookstores can always individually order our titles either directly or through normal distribution wholesalers. We will consider wholesale discounts to selected and established online resellers. If you are planning on purchasing in bulk for your school, workplace etc… please contact us directly for discounted rates. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We offer up all titles to libraries at the standard retail rate. Most of our titles are available through Ingram and Baker & Taylor. They can also be ordered directly from our site or major online retailers. E-books are distributed directly from FHP and we do participate with various companies that are working on creating better PDF e-book options for library patrons. A lot is changing in this particular field at the moment, so if a title you are looking for isn’t available, let us know. We offer e-books to libraries at standard retail rates with unlimited checkouts. We do have very limited tech support in the area of e-books though, so libraries wishing to order will need to already have a system in place for the acceptance of e-books into their catalog. Our eBooks are currently offered in EPUB format.

We do strictly enforce our IP rights and aggressively pursue those who steal or abuse them. Our e-books are offered without DRM protection for the benefit of our customers. We want our readers to be able to move their book files from one device to another without restriction. This sets us apart from other publishers who don't trust their customers not to steal from them. Please help us keep this policy in place by helping us protect our intellectual property. Someone who purchases and electronic product is allowed to transfer the product to all of the electronic devices that they own for the personal use of those within their household only.

Our book covers are copyrighted designs with trademarked elements and may not be used online or through any other means by third parties without our explicit written consent, except as allowed by law. We do have to unfortunately spend way too much time prosecuting pirates. Accredited news organizations are allowed to use limited excerpts of the texts and images of the cover for limited editorial review purposes without permission. We strongly support fair usage for editorial and educational purposes. Sorry for the rant. We don't mean to sound intimidating; we have just recently been through an exhaustive battle with pirates using our book covers to mislead people and we want to let everyone know that we will fiercely protect our IP from unscrupulous persons.
