This is my new booksite: with its own domain name: http://www.biblicalcatholicism.com/: launched on 13 April 2014. My friend Mike Mudd has been extremely gracious and generous with his time in designing it; and did a great job.
As of this writing, I have 41 of my 43 books available, and new ones will be added as they come out (two in the next few months that I'm working on); also possibly some audio files of radio interviews in due course. The great thing here will be the permanent bulk discount prices. I'm now offering mobi files (which work with Amazon Kindle readers), as well as ePubs and PDFs for almost all titles (one is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet file: my sharpest e-book: for The One-Minute Apologist: designed by my friend John O'Connor).
Here is how the sales work. The ePubs and mobi's are already dirt-cheap at $6.99 (most sold are $8.99-10.99). PDFs are a rock-bottom $2.99. Not having much money (I can relate!) is not a barrier to buying my inexpensive e-books. Bulk discount sale prices for ePubs, mobi's, and other $6.99 e-books are as follows:
$4.68 (if you buy 3-4 of my e-books) [33% off or "buy two, get one free"]
$4.19 (if you buy 5-9 e-books) [40% off, or "buy three, get two free"]
$3.50 (if you buy 10 or more e-books) [50% off, or two-for-one]
The PDF files are even less expensive: $2.00, $1.79, and $1.50 respectively.
All major credit cards are accepted, and you can also pay via PayPal if you so choose. The book files are almost instantly sent to your e-mail address for immediate reading. You can sign up at the site, so that all your address information, etc., will be saved for later purchases.
Now, another cool thing is that you can even buy different kinds of files, and the bulk sale prices will still kick in. Thus, for example, you could buy three PDFs, a mobi, and an ePub for five different books and the 40% discount kicks in for all purchases. That purchase would be $22.95 at regular prices, but with the discount, goes down to a mere $13.77 for five books, or an average of $2.75 per book. But two of those cost $6.99 regular (already low) price.
It's a great way to buy books very inexpensively. And in buying from this site, there is no middle man, which means I receive almost 100% profit or royalties, minus only small transaction fees and a modest monthly fee for the site and use of Shopify. If you want low-cost books and you'd like to see me receive most of the royalties, then this is the way to go. Everybody's happy: you get low low prices, and I have more income coming in, so that I can continue my full-time apologetics apostolate and bring you more apologetics books and other materials all the time (as I've been doing since 1993, online since 1997, and full-time since December 2001).
The site sells all my books except for two recent ones. This includes my five published with Sophia Institute Press, which are several of my most well-known books (A Biblical Defense of Catholicism, The Catholic Verses, The One-Minute Apologist, The Quotable Newman, and Bible Proofs for Catholic Truths). I received express permission from Sophia to sell the e-books on my own.
It includes my book of Chesterton quotations, and also my notes for The Catholic Answer Bible (later expanded to The New Catholic Answer Bible with additional notes from Dr. Paul Thigpen). On my new site only, you can purchase the text of the 44 inserts (minus the Bible). That brings you 44 one-page treatments of all the major topics, with Scripture and Catechism references. Just $6.99 (16 cents per topic!), with possible further bulk discounts.
I hope you will visit and purchase often, and please spread the world if you would. This is my bread and butter. I'm bringing you prices as low as I can possibly make them and still get any profit at all. The idea is that folks will hopefully buy buy buy, and then I'll make decent money in volume. But Catholic apologetics is a very tiny market, which is always my challenge.
So I need lots of folks coming to my site who are predisposed to buy apologetics books. Thus, your prayers and spreading the message would be greatly appreciated as I launch this new venture. I don't have a bunch of capital that I can sock into advertising and technical services, so that everything is a spectacular success right away. It's just me, with my meager income, doing all I can.
I have to have a lot of folks visiting, and income is directly based on sales. I rely on you buying the books, so I can make my living: the one God called me to over 30 years ago now. I knew in 1981 that I was to be an apologist, and that that was my life's work and vocation, and I have persevered through thick and thin ever since then, by God's grace and that alone.
The master books page on my blog will remain open and updated as well. It includes links to all my books in all formats, with convenient links to info-pages for each book, so you can see how the prices work and what is available. I just updated it today.
Happy reading! I'm honored and humbled and deeply grateful that you read my writing. All glory to God.
