Independent Author Consignment Policy

Thank you for considering our bookstore for placement of your book. Because we are approached many times throughout the year by authors hoping we will sell their books, it has become necessary to develop a written policy so that all expectations are clear.

Please note that we have updated our consignment agreement, as of February, 2016.

Due to the economics of carrying and selling books by independent authors, it is our policy to take such books on consignment.

There will be a $20 stocking fee charged for each unique title (not each book) left on consignment.

For consignment purposes, we will stock only books by authors from or books relevant to our region.

The placement and display of your book inside the store is at our discretion. We have created a “Local & Self-Published” section in order to direct customers to books of local interest.

We will not accept unsolicited books sent by mail. Unsolicited books will not be returned unless the author provides us with payment for return shipping.

Please contact The Galaxy Bookshop by email before bringing books in for consignment.
