For Authors

Thank you for your interest in Book and Paper carrying your book. Please bear in mind we receive multiple requests every week, so it’s not always possible to accommodate every author. Requests are reviewed on a weekly basis and you should have a response within 7 business days.

Here are some guidelines we’ve developed which help us decide which books to carry on our shelves. We require these guidelines be met, thanks for your understanding and cooperation! 


  • The author must be local to the West
  • The book and its content must be pertinent to our community
  • The book must be newly published, ideally no more than 6 months old
  • The book must be packaged properly: We look at price, writing & editing quality, cover design, binding, and the general packaging. We do not accept books that do not have the title and author on the spine (no spiral binding)
  • The author/publisher website must link to
  • To start the consignment process, a copy of the book must be dropped off or mailed to Book and Paper for review along with your contact information (name, phone, email and mailing address). If approved, this book can be used toward the consignment agreement.

If you feel your book fits the requirements to be in our store, please contact us here with your details and a synopsis of your book and we will be in touch.
