Stocking Your Book
Quail Ridge Books will consider self-published or self-promoted books from authors who live in Raleigh or the surrounding area. Congratulations on the publication of your book. We appreciate the effort that this work represents, and we know how proud of it you are.
We will make every effort to examine your book and evaluate its potential for selling in our store as soon as possible. Please be aware, however, that we usually have a large number of books to consider, and there is not time to review them all within a short period. We appreciate your patience.
We take self-published or self-promoted books only on a consignment basis. We do not pay shipping for consignment titles. If we accept your book, we will pay you 60% of the retail price for any copies that we sell. We usually review the status of consignment titles 2 or 3 times a year. If a title has not sold in a reasonable time, we request that the author pick up unsold copies. Those that are not picked up will be donated to local organizations.
Please note the following points before submitting your book:
- It should be professionally proofed, edited, designed, and published.
- It should have a spine with the title and author on it.
- It should be priced comparably to others of its type.
- It should have an ISBN.
- It should be appropriate for our store: i.e., it should not be in a genre that we do not stock or promote.
We do not accept books published or printed through Amazon.com. If your book is, you can open a free IngramSpark account at www.ingramspark.com and begin the process to transfer the titles you have with Amazon into your new IngramSpark account. More information can be provided upon request.
If we stock your book, we ask that your promotional material directs customers to Quail Ridge Books for purchasing, and that you tag @quailridgebooks in any social media. Also, please note that all correspondence regarding consignment, except for payment, will be done via email. It is the author's responsibility to ensure that we always have a current email and mailing address while consigning a book.
If these terms are agreeable, please send a non-returnable review copy along with the Author Information Sheet included below, to the attention of the consignment buyer. We will contact you when a decision is made.
Thank you for sharing your book with us. We wish you every success.
