Customer Newsletter for 06/04/2019

Hello Publishers,

We're finally into summer, and I hope you're enjoying every bit of it. June also means that some of our staff will be at Origins this year in Columbus, Ohio, and we would love to see you there.

Christmas in July

"Christmas in July" is one of our biggest promotions annually, with thousands of titles on sale across all of our sister sites. If you want to take part in this sale, be sure to opt in using the "Opt in or out of site-wide sales" tool page.

NOTE: Given the popularity of this event, even if you don't normally take part in our large promotions, you might consider adding yourself in for this one, and then you can opt back out once the sale is done. 

RPGNow Merger

With the end of the merger on the horizon, RPGNow will be merging fully with DriveThruRPG, and all customers will soon be forwarded to that domain. Consider this a final reminder to check the following and make sure you refer customers to DriveThruRPG, not RPGNow:

  • Publisher notes
  • Comp copies
  • Discounts
  • Product descriptions

NOTE: We suggest changing your URL to use (rather than to eliminate confusion for the customer.

Paper Cost Increase

Increased paper costs for our book manufacturing partner Lightning Source are being relayed on to us. As a result, the print cost of all POD books will increase by 3% starting this September.

Product Reviews – A Reminder

As a reminder, per the Publisher Conduct Guidelines, the product review system is intended to capture the opinions of independent customers only. We periodically check for instances of review abuse and have suspended publishers from our marketplace for such abuse.


OneBookShelf staff will be attending these upcoming conventions:

GAMA Origins − Columbus, OH (June 12-16, 2019)

Meredith Gerber, Chris Tang, Brian Petkash

GenCon Indy − Indianapolis, IN (August 1-4, 2019)

All publisher-facing staff will be attending. (Meredith will be there only Wednesday through Friday; Chris will be there Friday to Sunday.)


As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at my e-mail address during normal business hours. Thank you!


Meredith Gerber
