What are Indie Novels?
Indie is short for independently published. This means that the authors of these books either publish the books themselves, or are published by a small publishing agency. This oftentimes means that these authors pay to have their book cover made, book formatted, and marketed - or they do all of these things themselves. Because of this, many of these books end up not receiving a lot of press because of the small scale that they were published in. That is why we aim to present you with fantastic novels that are hidden gems of the literary world, while also assuring that you will find new authors who you can fall in love with. There is almost a 100% chance that you don't own any of the books we send out, and this makes our box one of a kind.
When do you ship?
Our boxes will come once a month and we ship out between the 15th - 20th of each month. You will be billed on the 1st of each month, unless you sign up for the three month pre-pay, and the deadline to order that month's box is the 10th. Orders after this date will receive the next months box. You can also skip months or cancel at any time by logging into your account!
Do you ship internationally?
We do! Below are our shipping fees:
US Shipping: (The Weekender) $4.99
(All Plans) $19.99
What genres do you include?
We feature novels in all different genres to help you expand your reading horizons. However, we do not include poetry, erotica, or horror. These genres are only included in certain limited edition boxes we feature. Every book we send is independently published, and it is very likely that every book you receive you will have never heard of before, guaranteeing a one of a kind experience.
If you are looking for a literary horror box, please try our other book subscription that is centered only on horror novels, Hedren's Chest!
Do you offer refunds?
At this time we do not give refunds on any boxes if you don't like the books, but we will replace items if they are damaged! We also do not give refunds if you change your mind before getting a box. Once a payment has gone through you will be receiving the next box out, but you are free to cancel at any time after that.
Do you donate to charity?
Yes, our entire business was created to help us support an organization called Knitted Knockers, of which we are the official Colorado sponsor for. All proceeds allow us to purchase all of the materials necessary to hand knit the knitted knockers to send out to women with breast cancer all across Colorado for free. The proceeds also help us cover the shipping costs to send them out, and we supply various hospitals throughout the state with the knockers as well.
Do you send paperback or hardback books?
Generally, we send paperback novels. Most indie novels are only available in paperback due to production costs, but we may send hardbacks if they are available.
What are some examples of your touchable items?
Some touchable items we have sent in the past are handmade bookmarks, book bags. earrings, fans, jewelry, etc. The touchable items can be just about anything, and will relate to the novel(s) chosen. These items are fun and are usable outside of the bibliotherapy experience. They are also almost always handmade and are one of a kind to our box!
