Macmillan Restricts eBooks

macmLast November Macmillan Publishers, which handles St. Martin’s Press, Tor, and Farrar, Straus & Giroux among others, began restricting the number of eBook copies of their titles that libraries could purchase. As a result of this, for the first 8 weeks of a title’s release, we are only able to purchase 1 copy of anything Macmillan distributes. This will lead to you having to wait significantly longer for many new releases. Some of the authors whose books are affected include Lee Child, Tom Clancy, Michael Connelly, Janet Evanovich, Kristin Hannah, Stephen King, Liane Moriarty, Nora Roberts (also writes as J.D. Robb), C.J. Box, Rhys Bowen, and Louise Penny. We know what it’s like to wait for a book we’re desperate to read and we are sorry for the inconvenience. Contact Macmillan Publishers at or 888.330.8477 for further information.
