FAQ / Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I buy your books?

You can buy my books from a variety of retailers and you can buy both print and digital versions of the books for your tablets, phones and other devices that allow you to read books (think: Kindle, Kobo, etc.) The best thing you can do is to go to my Books page to find the book you are looking for and then click on the “Learn More” button. Here, you will get to a page with sales links. If the book you are looking for is listed on the Coming Soon page, then it is currently not for sale. But sign up to the mailing list and be the first to know when the book is released.

I’m hosting a conference / I’m building a curriculum. Can I get your books discounted?

You bet! I offer discounted prices for people who want to use the Tess Tobias books for educational purposes or as part of a literary / crime conference. Please reach out to us and tell us about the event. You will be responsible for shipping costs and customs as well, so make sure you order well in advance.

What are you working on now?

That’s a good question! Chances are that I’m working on one of the books listed under the Coming Soon Releases┬ápage. In addition, I’m working on creating a Crime Writing School, where you can learn how to craft, write and publish your very own crime novel.

What’s your background in writing?

I have an Honours Bachelor’s Degree and a Master’s Degree. You can learn more about me and my education on the About page. I also did a┬ácourse in writing with James Patterson.

What’s the deal with the Foundation?

I don’t like doing something without giving back. Ever since becoming a mother, I’ve had the drive to help those in need who don’t have the same access to food and water as we do. A portion of every product sold goes to the UN Food Programme. If you buy a book, you could provide a lifeline to a child in need.

Where do you teach writing?

I’m currently not teaching any writing, but I’m working on putting together a crime-writing program to help you develop your idea into a self-published book. Keep an eye out for the Crime Writing Academy.

Can I get more information about your writing program?

To get more information about the Crime Writing Academy, including when it opens, please sign up to my mailing list from the Home page or from the Community page.
