Consignments at Room

Room accepts a certain number of consignment agreements from local and regional authors. As a community resource with limited shelf space we carefully consider the content of our shelves. Because of this, we will not be able to accept every consignment proposal we receive.

  1. You may submit your book’s details and/or press release via email to In the email subject line write: “CONSIGNMENT INQUIRY”. We accept .docx and/or .pdf files as attachments.

Are you a local author who is looking to stock your book, but not via consignment? You can still send an email as directed above. Make sure to note that you are not intending consignment, but rather hoping to have your book stocked. This is especially easy if your book is available via Ingram.
