Thank you for your interest in having your book stocked in our shop. Regrettably, it is not possible for us to accept every book that is submitted to us.
Our shop is small and shelf space is limited. Therefore going forward, we have chosen to operate on a monthly basis, showcasing a maximum of one self-published book each month. We operate on a consignment basis, which means that we will hold copies of your book for a calendar month. At the end of the month, we will ask you to collect what is left, and pay you for the books that have sold. Your book will be displayed on the counter, along with a short blurb – it is up to you to market your book, although we will share with our audience on social media.
Self-publishing your own work is a great achievement that takes a lot of hard work. We also understand there is cost to the author involved, and that there are pros and cons of different publishing platforms. However, we are unable to stock books that are self-published via the Amazon printing platform. We are a children’s bookshop so we are also not able to consider books targeted at an adult audience.
If you would like us to consider stocking your book, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a synopsis, and tell us about you. Please also tell us why it would be a good fit for our shop. We would also like to see pictures of your book. If we think that your book is a good fit, we wil ask you to bring a copy in so that we can see it properly.
We receive a lot of emails, but will aim to come back to you within a week.
