Answers to your Questions

EBOOK INFORMATION

What are eBooks?

All of our ebooks are digital books–not apps. As parents ourselves, we believe that the last thing bedtime needs is more levels. Depending on where you purchase one of our eBooks, it may have different functionality or appear slightly different. While eBooks are at least 10-years old, we were one of the first companies to make them for children, and the standards across retail, library and school platforms simply don’t yet exist.

Are your books educational?

Of course!  Reading is always educational.  A large number of our books adhere to Common Core State Standards and have been vetted by educational professionals. Please take a look at individual titles for more details.

How can my school add your books?

Our print titles are available for direct order from our website as well as from education and retail vendors.  We also work with a wide variety of partners to make our eBooks available to schools with models ranging from school-hosting and full ownership of multi-user access titles, to school subscription services, to both single-user and multi-user access through education vendors like Follett School Solutions.

How can my library add your books?

Our print titles are available for direct order from our website as well as from Ingram and retail vendors. Our eBooks are available with many different ownership and usage models to libraries. While OverDrive may be the most common library ebook system (and all of our titles are available through their platform), we want to make sure that your library can supply families with quality eBooks through whatever platform you choose, and so our books are available from a wide range of vendors.

SUBMISSIONS INFORMATION

Do you accept submissions?

Yes.  We are always looking for great stories and brilliant information.  Our selection process is quite rigorous and we have more information here.

ORDERS AND RETURNS

How do I place an Order?

You can purchase print titles directly through our website. If you would like to use a purchase order, please contact us at sales@xistpublishing.com 

I want to sell Xist Titles in my store. How do I do that?

Please send us an email at sales@xistpublishing.com to establish a new wholesale account. 

Do I need an account to place an order?

You do not need an account to place an order on our website. If you would like to purchase for your school or library and receive a 20% discount, you will need to establish an account with us.

Do you accept returns from bookstores?

The returns system is one of the most difficult aspects of sales for a small publisher. While most of our books through Ingram are not available for return, we are able to accommodate small stores on a case by case basis. Please contact us at sales@xistpublishing.com for more information.
