Book Consignment Info

Thank you for your interest in placing your book at Annie Bloom's Books. If your book has been published by an established publisher, and we decide to carry it, we will purchase it directly from that publisher. If that is the case, you are welcome to send us notification of your book's publication to books@annieblooms.com.

If your book is self-published or not readily available through our preferred wholesalers (e.g., Partners West, PGW), we may offer you the opportunity for us to sell it on a consignment basis. However: We will not stock books (or host readings for books) that have been published via CreateSpace or any other Amazon affiliate program. On consignment, the book remains the property of the consignor until sold. Annie Bloom's Books is not responsible for lost or stolen merchandise. If you would like your book considered for stock, please follow our consignment guidelines:

• For books that are accepted on consignment, a $10 one-time service fee is required for each account. This fee helps pay for the extra labor involved in tracking inventory and payments for each title.

• We prefer that consignment requests be made in writing, via email. We are unable to accommodate walk-in visits or telephone inquiries prior to acceptance.

• Our standard consignment terms are: We take a 40% discount (i.e., 60% of sales go to the author/consignor) and we keep consigned books in stock for a minimum of 90 days (depending on sales).

• To submit a book for consideration, please email a one-paragraph letter including your contact information, ISBN, and price information, along with promotional materials, publicity plans, target audience, and any connections to Annie Bloom's and/or Multnomah Village. Book submissions without local publicity plans and without specific demonstrated interest in Annie Bloom's will receive scant attention.

 *Submissions should be sent to books@annieblooms.com. If we feel your book may have a market with our customers, we may request a review copy. We prefer that these be dropped off in person. If you are unable to physically submit a review copy, please mail it to the store (ATTN: Consignments), along with a self-addressed stamped envelope with sufficient postage to cover the cost of returning the book.

• Due to the heavy volume of submissions, this review process can take several weeks. If you have submitted a review copy of a book that we have elected not to consign, we ask that you pick up your review copy within 90 days. If submitted by mail with a SASE, we will mail your review copy to you within 90 days. Books not picked up after 90 days will be donated.

• The decision made by our buyers is final.

We are proud to support local authors who actively promote their book's availabilty at Annie Bloom's. We do our best to provide shelf space for consignment books, while still keeping in mind our inventory needs and the interests of our customers. We look forward to reviewing your work and thank you for your interest in Annie Bloom's Books.
