Frequently asked questions
What is your refund policy for books?
Digital downloads are non-refundable as the file is transmitted immediately. If you do not receive your digital file after completing the purchase, check your junk mail or spam folder. Otherwise send a direct email to email@example.com with your order number and the file will be sent to you directly. Please allow up to 24 hours for a response before sending a follow up inquiry.
Printed materials are returnable up to one year from invoice date, but not before 120 days. All returned books must be in resellable condition. Books returned in a non-resellable condition will not be credited.
Request for return is not required. To ensure proper credit, returns must provide the original invoice number and date for all returned merchandise. Address for returns:
10 Lillington Avenue, PO Box 773
Channel-Port aux Basques
Purchases from a Third Party website (for example: Amazon, BookBub, Kobo, Printful) are subject to their terms and conditions for refunds.
Are you currently accepting submissions?
Freelance writers for Wreckhouse Weekly are always welcome. Please send a short email outlining what you would like to write about to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As for book manuscripts, not yet.
While we hope to grow Wreckhouse Press to include more authors, at present we are still focused on getting the newspaper humming along smoothly. Once this changes, we will post an update.
What other books are you working on and when will they be released?
Rosalyn Roy is close to finishing a non-fiction humour memoir about the inexplicably bad road trips she keeps taking, tentatively titled Hard Tickets. She anticipates a late Fall 2020 release.
A 2020 Port aux Basques Come Home Year cookbook and a photo book dedicated to the Southwest Coast by other local authors are also in the works and should be available in Spring of 2021.
What is the best way to reach you for media inquiries?
The fastest route is probably Twitter, where our staff writer usually lurks while writing. Otherwise try Facebook or email.
I have a question not listed here.
Happy to help! There's a handy contact form below, but if it's urgent try the office number at 709-695-2389 or any of the social media links in the header bar.
Why do I have to sign up to post a comment?
Because Spam Bots exist and they ruin the world for everyone.
On a previous blog, we were constantly having to delete ads for penile enlargement. We're not going through that again. It's distressing.
If you're human you can post at will and you can always opt out of the e-mail list if you don't want it. We're not here to spam you or stop you from having your say, whether positive or negative.
We're just trying to prevent everyone from having to read through 300 ads for Viagra in the comments section.
Why do I have to pay to see your news articles?
Because running a website isn't free. Because just gathering news in the first place isn't free (think gas or phone bills). Because staff have to be paid. Because we aren't millionaire philanthropists, as much as we'd like to be.
