The Bookstore Plus is proud to support local authors through our consignment program, which allows us to carry and feature a much wider variety of self-published and print-on-demand titles than we could through traditional purchasing. We have provided shelf space to local and independent authors for decades.
General Consignment information
Books must have a spine displaying the title and author’s name (no spiral-bound books).
Upon the sale of your book, you will receive 60% of the retail value of the book per copy sold. Retail pricing must be consistent wherever your books are sold. Twice a year we will send payment accrued from book sales to an address provided by the consignor. Payments will be sent in February and November.
The basic administrative fee for consignment is $20. If 10 or more books are sold within the first six months, this $20 fee is rebated.
The Bookstore Plus agrees to display books on a consignment basis for a minimum of six months. If there is a six-month period without sales, we will return books by mail. Once a book has been removed from our shelves, that title will not be restocked. Please do get in touch when you have a new title to consider for our consignment program.
We will pay only for items sold. Damaged or stolen items are the sole financial responsibility of the consignor.
Helpful Tips to make your consignment successful:
Encourage friends, family, and other contacts to purchase your book at The Bookstore Plus.
Contact your local media and mailing lists to announce that your book is available at The Bookstore Plus.
Send out press releases, review copies, and other promotional materials.
Get involved with book clubs, libraries, and other community organizations. Greater success comes from a wide array of author-coordinated promotion.
