There are no ads on this website. I don't sell email addresses, ask for donations, or put work behind a paywall. The only way I make money is if people buy books. Hint hint.
Way one I get money is if readers order some of the books reviewed or mentioned on this site. Malarkey Books is now an IndieBound Affiliate. If you follow a link from this site to IndieBound and buy the linked-to book, Malarkey Books will receive a small fee.
Way two I get money is through the bookstore, where you can buy signed copies of our books. I try to make a note in here if I'm temporarily out of books, but there's always a possibility that I just sold the last copy in stock and haven't got around to making a note about it here, in which case it might take a while to get your copy. In order to keep shipping low, I use media mail, so even when I have books in stock shipping may take a few days. One last thing: in order to reduce waste, I tend to ship books in whatever reusable materials I have available, so your book might arrive in a used box or manila envelope or even a brown shopping bag. It's always a surprise!
For an extra fiver I can infuse the first five pages with my pheromones.
If you don't want to use a credit card, I guess you can send a check to PO Box 19713, Denver, CO 80219. Make the check to me, Alan Good. If you ever do this, be sure to send an email to email@example.com with a subject line that's like "Hey, check your post office box!" I don't check it all the time.
Malarkey Books is not a capitalist operation. I could use some money, but I'm more interested in selling books, in getting books into the hands of readers, than I am in making buckets of money, so please don't feel bad about paying less than the retail price. Feel free to use one of the following discount codes at checkout:
TEN (this will get you ten percent off your order)
TWENTY (twenty percent off your order)
THIRTY (thirty percent off your order)
FORTY (forty percent off your order)
Hypothetically, if someone were to use the forty-percent-off code, then trash the book they bought at a steep discount on the internet, that person would be a piece of shit on a scale that terrifies me beyond comprehension, but that's not you.
Pay what you want or what you can afford, and if you like the book, maybe you can recommend it to a friend.
