Sell your book in-store at Pieces & Pages:

Are you interested in putting your book in our store on consignment? We would love to review your book to see if we feel it would be a good fit in our store. To get started, Tell us. Tell us a bit about yourself and your book or writing style. Make sure you send us some contact information and we will send you more information about our consignment agreement if we are interested in stocking your book on our shelves.

We will give preference to local authors, books with local interest, and interesting titles we think will sell.

Review my book, Please?

If you would like Pieces & Pages to potentially review your book, you may drop off a review copy anytime the store is open. Dropping off a review copy is no guarantee that it will be read by an employee nor is it a guarantee that you will receive a positive written review. If we are unable to review your book within 2 months, we will contact you to pick-up your review copy. Any review copies not picked up within 14 days of contact will be donated or discarded as we see fit.
