Frequently Asked Questions

General

Many of my books are available through print-on-demand, which means that books are printed to order through a 3rd party service and shipped to you directly. This means that I don’t carry the inventory for those titles and they cannot be purchased directly from me. However, I have select hardcover titles that I do carry and sell directly.


If you are part of a community, school, or parent group and you’d like to organize a group purchase or stock up on gifts, you can save 30% with code: BULKBUY30

Note: In order to qualify, you must ship to a single US address and order a minimum of 10 books, and this discount code is only available for select hardcover titles.


Yes, but only for the select hardcover titles that I carry and sell directly. I offer autographed books with dedication messages for an additional fee.

(1) One option is by browsing through my onhand books. On your chosen book, please select the format Hardcover with Autograph Add-On.

(2) The other option is by checking out the Autographed by the author (add-on) at the same quantity of the number of books ordered.


Yes, we ship international to select countries: Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, United Kingdom.

For other countries, most of my titles are available on Amazon. So if your country has an Amazon domain (ie. Amazon.ca) then you can search for “Katrina Liu books” and you should be able to order directly from there.


You can purchase hardcover titles directly from me or also purchase at Barnesandnoble.com

You can also request your local bookstore to purchase my books. Right now, all paperback books are only available through Amazon.


Yes, I am working on translating the majority of my titles in Cantonese, it’s just taking me a while to publish them. If you know of good Cantonese translators, please contact me. Sign up for my email newsletter to be notified when they release. If you are fluent in Cantonese or Mandarin and would like to help you can join my beta reader club.

Coaching & Author Services

I’d love to! I offer 1:1 coaching for clients who are interested in creating a profitable children’s book. Visit my coaching page for more details.


Coaching sessions are 1 hour Q&A style via Zoom and completely tailored to your individual needs depending on which stage you are in your book. I can help you create a roadmap and determine the next set of action items, brainstorming, providing feedback and tips well as answering any questions you might have about the publishing process.


Unfortunately no, sessions cannot be broken up. Don’t worry, there should be more than enough info to cover an hour.


Most clients select the 5-pack or more for coaching sessions so that I can help them every step of the way, plus you get 5 for the price of 4. But this is completely up to you. I offer sessions a la carte so you can pay as you go.


I do offer “done for you services” such as cover design, graphic design, layout design, uploading to POD platforms, prepping files for print, ebook creation, illustration, bulk printing services and even end-to-end publishing. Contact me for a quote.
