Direct Buy Books is here to meet the challenges of book-people: readers, writers, publishers, and illustrators. Direct Buy Books is a webste for authors to offer their books, both existing titles and fresh and excitingly created new books, to readers with discerning taste.

These books may still be available as eBooks on websites where electronic books are sold. This site is for readers who still want to read a wonderful, hand-held, turn the page, literal, literary, cozy read.

Small book publishers sign new authors for contracts covering a limited number of weeks or months. Then, those wonderful books are removed from the publisher’s book line-up. Some books have been prize winners.

Shortly, this site will be made available to other authors who would like to offer their books to readers, as soon as those pages are developed. Watch the site for that opportunity as it is developed in the next few days and weeks. Contact information:
