How long does it take to receive a book?

Our normal shipping is U.S. Priority Mail. Normally, meaning without weather delays or transportation issues, you should have your novel in hand one week after getting the email reply that yes, your book has gone to production. That’s for any of our paperback options; please allow a few extra days for the hardback option, which does take longer to produce and make. Keep in mind, please, that each book is printed one at a time, specific to your custom order. Ebooks, by the way, are delivered via email as a pdf within 24 hours.

Here are a more more details from our FAQs page (See all the FAQs here):

What are your shipping and handling (S/H) charges?

We have two options for shipping and handling for both in the United States and for outside the country: STANDARD and EXPRESS. We use the United States Postal Service (USPS) for most of our shipping, but if the need arises, we will use another carrier.

  • STANDARD U.S. Priority is $8.50
  • STANDARD Out-of-Country Priority is $27.50
  • U.S. EXPRESS Service is $32.50
  • Out-of-Country EXPRESS Service is $65

How long will it take to get my book with STANDARD Shipping?

In the United States, paperbacks sent STANDARD U. S. Priority usually arrive within a week from when the order was placed.

Outside the U.S., add another 2-4 business days.

In the United States, hardbacks sent STANDARD U.S. Priority usually arrive within two weeks of when the order was placed. Outside the U.S., add another 2-4 business days.

These are estimated times and can vary for many factors (including weather, which is beyond our control), sometimes making the delivery quicker and sometimes longer.

How long will it take to get my book with EXPRESS Shipping?

EXPRESS Shipping refers to the delivery method, which in most cases in the U.S. is next day delivery after the book has been made. EXPRESS Shipping will normally cut 2-3 days off the delivery time, but remember that the book first has to be produced.

Outside the U.S., add another 2-4 business days.

These are estimated times and can vary for many factors (including weather, which is beyond our control), sometimes making the delivery quicker and sometimes longer.

Will you notify me when my order has been shipped?

Yes, each order placed has a confirmation number that will be sent to you by email, if you’ve provided a valid email address. You will receive three auto-emails from YourNovel.com as follows:

  • When you place your order;
  • When your order has gone to production;
  • When it has been shipped.

If you have questions about shipping, you will find info posted on our blog www.yournovelblog.com or reply to your shipping info email.
