We receive a lot of requests from self published and independent authors regarding getting their books into the shop. We unfortunately can’t take everything, but are happy to look at information provided to us. It is best to do this via email rather than in person so that we can make sure your request is seen by the right people.
Please email us with as much information as possible about your book. This should include the basics like a synopsis and cover image, but also the RRP, your trade terms (how much you’re selling the book to retailers), and whether you supply independently or through a wholesaler. It’s also good to know where in the shop you think your book would fit in and any marketing or promotion around it that will benefit your sales.
We’ll do our best to respond to your enquiries but please bear in mind that we cannot take every book shown to us. It may take us a little while to properly look through and make a decision.
If you’re uncertain about the information you need to approach us or other bookshops, there’s an excellent guide on the Bookseller’s Association website that breaks down what you need and what to expect.
Please also be aware that we cannot offer BACS payments – if we do stock your title then payments will be cash or cheque.
