Author Consignment Program

Would you like us to carry your book?

  • If your book is available through a major publisher or a distributor such as Ingram, and is returnable, please contact our Head Buyer, Becky Dayton at 802-388-2061 or email her at If we decide to carry it, we will order direct.
  • If you are a local author, or your book is self-published or published through a small press, please see our consignment program information (CLICK HERE). You must reside in Vermont, or an approved nearby region (Hello Adirondacks!), or your book must contain content specific to Addison County to be considered for consignment terms

We review every book that we consider before making our decision, and look for the following in self-published books:

  • Publication date no older than six months
  • Author name and title on the spine
  • Relevant and quality content
  • Minimal typos, with a clean professional design
  • ISBN required, barcode preferred 
  • Meets standard shelf-size requirements

If you believe your book meets our basic criteria, we will be happy to consider it. Please start by emailing Becky at and be sure to include any pertinent info about your book. If we have interest we will be in touch soon!
