Is this a Black-owned business?

Yup! We’re owned by a Blackity-Black-Black mama of 2 little ones. Learn more about Markita and her crew here.

How long will it take for me to receive the items I purchased?

Books, stickers, and paper products typically ship within 24 -72 hours via USPS Media Mail unless you selected a different shipping option.

You’ll receive an email update with USPS tracking information once your item ships. It usually takes 3-5 days to reach you.

Should I just buy on Amazon? That’s what I’m used to.

We genuinely appreciate your business no matter what, so your preference comes first. (And that Prime relationship…we FEEL that.)

However, we definitely appreciate a customer that chooses to buy directly from us. As a small business, it’s nice to “see” our customers, and also nice not to share our profits with Amazon or other big box retailers. Plus, when you shop with us, you get goodies like free bookmarks, stickers, and other cute things we may choose to put into your package.

Oh - and the Curly Crew Bundle. You can’t get that on Amazon ;)

Do you ship internationally?

It depends. Email us directly and let’s figure out if we can make it work.

Do you offer wholesale pricing?

Yes! Volume discounts start at quantities of 6 per book. We use Faire to manage wholesale orders. You can also email us directly for more info on wholesale discounts.

What is the lifetime warranty on books?

We are so excited to offer our customers a lifetime warranty for all paperback books bought on the site or on Amazon. The initial vision behind the Curly Crew book series was to create a series of board books. That’s still in the works. In the meantime, while we have paperback books we want your young children to be able to enjoy them. So, if you purchased a book and it’s now damaged, just fill out this form and we’ll get a fresh copy to you ASAP.

I want to write a children’s book! Do you offer consulting?

First off, congrats on what is going to be the dopest journey ever! And yes. You can check out my services at my biz site I Self Published That. You can set up time with me and we can talk more about your goals, whether this is your first book or one of many.

Do you illustrate books for others?

I do not offer illustration services (it just takes too long for a self-taught illustrator like myself) but reach out and I’ll be glad to point you in the direction of some illustrators I know.
