What is the Book Club?

If you find deep inspiration through our products and want to be notified when a new product is released — as well as receive discounts on all of our products — you’ll want to sign up for our “Hot Off the Press” Club.

What are the benefits of membership?

  1. 40% off list price on all new releases.
  2. 30% off list price on all other products – everyday.
  3. You will be the first notified when new products are released.
  4. You will be eligible to receive “limited” editions or special discounts on products not otherwise available to the general public.

This works like a book club

When a new release arrives we will send you an email that tells you about about the new item in detail. If you are interested in the product, do nothing, and it will be shipped to you automatically within 30 days. If you are not interested in the product, simply hit the “Do Not Send this Product” link in the email (within 7 days of receiving the email) and we will not ship the item to you. We will ship the product to you if we do not hear from you. It’s as simple as that!

How many products new products a year do you release?

We release (on average) between 6-12 new products per year, including an occassional updated & revised edition or release of an older and/or out-of-print title that may not have been available for several years.

New! Introducing Hot Off the Press Classics

This is a new feature of Hot Off the Press. New members of this book club have not had the opportunity of ordering many of our best titles at the book club prices. So we have instituted “Hot Off the Press Classics.” With this service, from time to time we will send notice of one of our classic titles—especially the works of Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda—as a “Hot Off the Press Classic” offering. You can opt-in to order this item at the usual 40% discount. Unless you opt-in, you will not receive this item.

How do I sign up?

Signing up is easy and only takes a couple of minutes. You can either call us at 800-424-1055,  or sign-up online.

Book Club FAQs

You are by no means obligated to buy every new release! We only ask that you purchase a minimum of one product per year to be considered an “active” club member. When you join the Club you receive larger discounts on your products, and we receive a base of loyal supporters who choose to receive our new releases. Your membership purchases allow us to maintain the needed funds for our product reprints. We see it as a win-win.
No. You will be notified of reprints as a courtesy, but they will not be automatically sent. If you are interested in receiving a reprint you will need to email us saying that you would like the reprint. You will still receive the full 40% discount on the re-released products. Sometimes, however, we come out with a new edition of an old product that contains substantial and important changes from the original. In these instances, we will treat the new edition as if it were a new product release. If you do not want the new edition, simply click the “Do Not Send this Product” link in your email notificaton.
No. There are no monthly or yearly fees of any type. The only time you are charged for anything is when you are shipped a product.
If, for any reason, you receive a product that you do not want, you can return it for a full refund (less shipping costs), no questions asked. Please see Refunds & Returns for more information.
If you are ordering by phone, please be sure to tell your order-taker that you are a book club member. If you are ordering online, the discount is received when checking out on the final shopping cart page. Simply enter the “Hot off the Press” promotional code that you receive when you join the book club to see the discount reflected in your shopping cart.
