Information for Authors:
If you are an author interested in promoting your book through an event at our store, we welcome your interest.  We ask that self-published authors consign their books with us in exchange for scheduling an event at the store and for our energy behind promoting the event on our website, social media venues, monthly newsletters, and in-store.  We are not able to consign every book that is presented to us, but will review your request to consign books in the store.  Please mail a printed copy or email a digital copy of the book you'd like to have considered.  If your books are selected for consignment, we will also reach out to you about setting up an author event.  Please complete our Self-Published Author Consignment Request form to begin the process.
If you are a traditionally published author, please stop by, call the store, or email for additional information and next steps.  Be sure to include information about your publishing company so that we may contact them to secure books for an event.
