For author visits, all schools and libraries (regardless of imprint) can contact Carol Monteiro (646-307-5012 or preferably, by email!) in regards to purchasing books. Basically, Macmillan offers a 40% discount, returnable, on orders of 16 or more books. Their payment terms are NET 30. They prefer to have 3 weeks lead time to guarantee best shipping possible.


If you are unable to reach Carol Monteiro, telephone Macmillan at 888-330-877, and be sure to say the books are being ordered for an author's visit to your school or library. Be sure to discuss the discount you are eligible for and their returnable terms.
