You’re not crazy: Melville House has a new website


Our new website and online store launches today. As you can see, it’s completely re-designed: we’re particularly proud of the new homepage, these nifty product pages, and, of course, the bag.

There’s also some new features to boast about, including one really significant thing: you can now buy ebooks direct from Melville House, in a few different formats: epub, Kindle, and PDF. We’ve also improved the functionality of an offer we first made last year: pre-order any forthcoming book and, as an added bonus, we’ll ship your order as soon as we receive books from the printer, 30 days before the official on-sale date in most cases. You’ll also get 20 percent off the list price.

As with all big relaunches, there’s sure to be some bugs here and there. Please don’t hesitate to email (charles AT mhpbooks.com) if you spot something or have a suggestion about the store. We’d be happy to hear from you.

We’ll be announcing a number of other website-related things over the course the next couple weeks: stay tuned for more.
