Congratulations on finishing your book. We know you are very excited to be published. Please understand we get numerous inquiries, and we also need to keep our customers happy by carrying the bestsellers for our area. Please read through the following information and adhere to our protocols.
NO WALK-INS ACCEPTED
NO SALES CALLS
DON’T BRING US COPIES OF YOUR BOOK. WE WILL REQUEST THEM IF WE WANT THEM.
We will consider any book – as we would a traditionally published one. Send us an email with information about you, a synopsis of your book, how to order it, your terms of sale, any review attention and sales information, and any other relevant information. If you are local, highlight that information.
WE DO NOT CARRY CREATESPACE or INGRAM SPARK TITLES (WITHOUT A 40% DISCOUNT), SO IF YOUR BOOK FITS THIS CATEGORY, IT DOES NO GOOD TO SEND US ANYTHING.
We receive numerous requests each month. We look at them in January-April. We do thoroughly read submissions. We will only reply if we are interested and it fits within those months. Some months we may be interested in buying your books, and other months, we will not. It is entirely at our discretion, and we will not provide any feedback to you. Again, this makes you the same as any author from a large press.
Do not send your email to us multiple times. It will not get us to respond more quickly or endear you. Do not call after you send us an email. We are less likely to consider your book if you do not include all the requested information on this page or if you contact us multiple times.
If we buy your book, we will contact you again if we want to buy more.
We have discovered store events are not highly attended. Those who succeed conduct a talk, read from their book, or walk around engaging customers. We do work in partnership with the library.
Due to low attendance, we only consider author signings by vetted authors (meaning you have been here before and proven your sales) or mainstream published books. If you are self-published, we will contact you if we want to host an event with your book.
