Terms and Conditions for the Participation in a Multi-Author Book

Please read these terms carefully as they are a binding legal contract, and we suggest downloading a copy for your records.

You are purchasing one (1) chapter in the multi-author book, which includes editing, proofreading, formatting, full professional design, bestseller rank on Amazon, and rights to distribute your chapter as you choose.

You are purchasing this in your business capacity and guaranteeing the purchase as an individual.

These Terms and Conditions of Purchase constitute the entire agreement between us. These Terms and Conditions of Purchase supersede our prior discussions, emails, online or voice messages.

What happens after you pay:

Our secure payment processor is Stripe or PayPal. You’ll receive a receipt for your records shortly after purchase. Please allow 24-48 hours for communication from Silke Harvey and Inner Hippie Books with further information.

We reserve the right to delay communication if technical difficulties arise.

Refund Policy

This service has a general no refunds policy. By completing this purchase, you acknowledge and agree not to initiate a chargeback. If you initiate a chargeback you will be charged an additional fee of USD 300. You agree that failure to complete your chapter in time does not warrant a refund.

If you fail to make all of the payments agreed in an instalment plan, none of the payments you have already made will be refunded nor brought forward to another book project. You will be suspended from the book project and no longer able to participate and your chapter will not be published.

In the event of you falling seriously ill, preventing you from completing your chapter on time on health grounds (medical proof will be required to support this claim), you will be offered an author spot in a future multi-author book. No refund is given in this case.

A refund will only be given if Silke Harvey and Inner Hippie Books fail to go ahead with the publication of the book for whatever reason.

Payments

Unless otherwise agreed on an individual basis, all payments and/or deposits (in the case of a payment plan being offered) are made in full at the start of the project.

You are responsible for carrying the costs for any equipment required for completing your written and/or audio chapter of the book, i.e. laptop, recording software, recording hardware, potential recording studio hire, etc. Inner Hippie Books does not provide these additional products and services and they are not included in the fee you pay for your chapter.

Audio Books

Audio books are complementary releases to the e-book and print release of a multi-author book and are not guaranteed to become bestsellers. They are released one to two months after the release of the e-book and print book on an audiobook channel chosen by Inner Hippie Books. If authors have purchased the option to record their own chapter, they are responsible for using adequate recording equipment and/or professional recording studio services. Inner Hippie Books merely provides authors with advice and assistance on selecting and using the right recording option. All proceeds from audiobooks also go to a charity chosen by Inner Hippie Books.
