Special Prices for Sierra Leone


SLWS will sell its books to the public in Sierra Leone at the rock-bottom prices given below so that majority of the people can afford.

SLWS authors including editors and contributors of poems, short stories and book chapters will receive a discount of Le10,000 per book for any number of books they wish to buy.

Booksellers and SLWS agents buying at least 5 copies of any SLWS book will receive a discount of Le10,000 per copy.

The printing price of a book is determined by its size, paper colour and number of pages. So you'll see slight differences in book prices. We don't distinguish between quality and type of book. We want the books to be generally affordable.

We encourage authors and other booksellers to offer the books at the recommended SLWS prices in order to create a perfect market system for SLWS books in Sierra Leone.

Please note that ROYALTIES to authors are not paid on author-discounted books.

These special prices are only for Sierra Leone. SLWS has a specific minimum-profit-cost-recovery mission for Sierra Leone.

A book that goes for $10 (Le75,000) on Amazon may go for only Le30,000 ($4) in Sierra Leone.
