Can I order a book from you?
Yes! Please see my Services page.
Do you supply schools, libraries or community groups?
Yes. Please see my Services page.
Do you stock books by self-published authors?
Yes. I’m happy to talk to self-published authors about stocking their books.
Please email me at email@example.com, attaching an image of the book cover and some information about your book. This should include a line or two saying what it’s about, its genre, and the suggested retail price.
I take books on a sale or return basis for three months initially, with the option to return them if they remain unsold. My commission is 30% of the book’s retail price.
If I turn your book down, please know that it’s nothing personal. I have limited display and storage space, so I need to believe your book has a good chance of selling in my shop before I agree to stock it. All shops are different, so this doesn’t mean it won’t be a good fit for another shop.
Books I’m currently considering:
Local interest and history
Novels (General Fiction and Crime)
Children’s picture books
Folk tales (especially collections with a local link)
Poetry from poets based in the North East and Yorkshire
Books I’m not considering at the moment (sorry – this may change!)
Science fiction and fantasy
Poetry from writers outside of the areas mentioned above
Memoir/Biography/Autobiography (unless there’s a strong local link)
Middle grade children’s books (chapter books)
Young adult fiction
Do you buy or accept donations of secondhand books?
No, sorry. I only stock new books.
