How do I order?

Near each book description there is an "Add to Cart" button. When you click on that button, your selection will be added to your shopping cart. If you plan to order multiple books, please click on the "Continue Shopping" button instead of your web browser’s "Back" button after placing items in the shopping cart. Otherwise you may have trouble adding additional books.

How can I pay for orders?

You can pay for online orders or phone orders with a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover card.

Is it safe to order from the McBooks Press site?

Yes. Our shopping cart is on a secure server. Your order information will be securely encrypted and safely transmitted to Independent Publishers Group. Your books will be shipped from their Chicago warehouse and their name will appear on your credit card statement. Independent Publishers Group is an extremely reliable company—recently named Book Distributor of the Year by the world’s largest bookseller. Independent Publishers Group now handles all order fulfillment for orders placed at the McBooks Press website.

Do you sell other historical fiction, that is not shown on your website?

No we don’t. Formerly McBooks Press sold books published by other firms, but now we stick to selling the books that we, ourselves, publish.

How do you ship books?

Independent Publishers Group, our order fulfillment service, ships most orders by UPS. It is best to have your order shipped to a street address rather than to a Post Office box.

Is my order guaranteed?

Yes. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If your books arrive damaged, Independent Publishers Group will replace them. Please call 800-888-4741 to report any problem with your order.
