A Print On Demand (POD) book is, as the name implies, printed by the publisher on demand, meaning the books are made to order for the customer.


Due to the nature of POD books, they are non-returnable to the publisher. Therefore we require a non-refundable deposit in the amount of 50% of the cost of the book before we submit the order to the publisher. This deposit is then applied toward the final cost of the book once it arrives. All Print On Demand books are final sale.

We should also note that due to the nature of print on demand titles, the quality of the book can differ from that of a regular book, in that sometimes in the event of older material it can appear like a scan or photocopy, or occasionally have an unappealing design, layout, or typeface.

Once the POD book is ordered it typically takes about 2-3 weeks to receive your copy at the store, at which point we would charge your credit card for the balance owing (minus the deposit already charged) and, depending on which option you chose at checkout, contact you regarding shipping or to let you know the order is ready for pick-up.

By adding a Print On Demand title to your cart and completing the checkout process, you agree to our terms and conditions.

If you have any questions about Print On Demand books, please contact your nearest McNally Robinson bookstore.

*Note: These terms and conditions do not apply to Print-On-Demand titles that are currently in stock at one of our bookstores.


"Polishing the Apples" is for young readers, but its focus and stirring view will inspire readers of all age groups and all lovers of poetry. Using poetry to assist in the development and maintenance of good character traits is the theme of "Polishing the Apples." Apples are polished to make them pleasing to the appetite and character is polished, with the use of poetry, to make it pleasing to humanity.

Through the use of her poetry, in "Polishing the Apples," Evelyn Dilworth-Williams, reveals a rich treatise for children who are embracing developmental issues of character and moral development. Her poems are primarily designed for young readers yet are easily enjoyed by mature readers as well.--Arnold Mindingall, PH.D., Clinical Psychologist, Child and Adolescent Associates PC Birmingham, Alabama.
