Our FAQ section is designed to facilitate a free and open dialogue between our authors and publishers and provide a platform for authors using TheBookPatch to get answers based on experience.

If you seek more information on print on demand or our self-publishing presses you can refer to our How To page.
The cost of printing your book depends on how many pages are in the book and how many you order.
We try our best to make printing as cost-effective for you as we possibly can.
That means we have no additional set up costs or order minimums you merely pay for the printing.
There are no set-up or hidden fees and we don't take one cent from the sales of your books. There is a Handling Charge which shows on the invoice. Calculated: $1.50 first book plus $0.10 book after, plus a 3% of the credit/debit card charge. This Handling Charge is separated from the Shipping Charge for clarity.
The handling charge cover packaging costs including both labor and materials, service fees from credit processing companies and any additional transportation and handling incidentals.
You cannot cancel an order as once it is placed the files go through preflight and directly to the press.
