In 2019 we got modern and switched from printing thousands of copies at a time and now do all of our books via print on demand. Our books are available from Ingram, Amazon, and CreateSpace. The exception is The Land of Debris. We still have a few of the original printing on kenaf paper, but sales are too modest to warrant a POD version.
The following is mostly of historical interest, but if your school, library or book store uses one of these distributors exclusively, and you’d like one of our titles, we can probably arrange to get it to you through them

They rebind books from publishers like Clearwater into cool hardcover books for classrooms and libraries. Right now they have hardcover versions of Algebra Unplugged in stock and perhaps There Are No Electrons. If a library requests enough of our books, they will do the same thing for any of our titles.
Beyond being a big publisher (they did the Harry Potter books), Scholastic sometimes acts as a distributor. When some schools needed one of our titles, they found it easiest to go through Scholastic, which bought the books from us. The schools already had a relationship with them. Scholastic also conducts book fairs all over the country. They have included our books in these fairs from time to time.
We’ve been selling direct to Barnes and Noble for years via their EDI system and have a great relationship with them. Therefore, if you need a larger quantity of our books for your classroom, it’s easy for them to just include it in one of their regular orders to us. If you’ve got a Barnes and Noble near your school, you might contact them to see if this makes sense for you. Now that Barnes and Noble College division is a under the main corporate umbrella, this may also make sense for some college stores operated by them.
