For Authors

This House of Books is a community-owned bookstore conceived by authors and run by authors. The General Manager, Tea Bar Manager, and 2/3 of the Board of Directors are published authors, as are about 30 of our member/owners (as of mid-October 2016).

Authors are very important to us!

If you have a published book, we'd like to have you involved in our co-op. There are quite a few ways this can happen:

  • INVESTING: We have a downloadable fact sheet for published authors showing the benefits you can get for as little as a $100 one-time investment.
  • CONSIGNMENT: If you're a self-published author, we may not be able to buy your book through normal wholesale channels, but that doesn't mean we won't consider it for stock. Take a look at our consignment program for details.
  • VOLUNTEERING: Volunteers have built this store, and continue to be a huge part of its operation. We'd love to have you helping us out.
  • EVENTS: If you are interested in holding a book signing in our store, please contact our event coordinator, Mark Taylor.
