Self Published Authors

Self-Published Author,

Thanks for your interest in The Book Stall. We do not generally carry self-published books. Primarily, we deal with publishers, and our process for the purchase, sale, restocking, and return of these books is complex. Self-published books tend to have a very limited audience and rarely sell sufficient quantities to compete for our limited shelf space. In fact, we buy only a very small percentage of the tens of thousands of titles established publishers offer each year.

In extremely rare circumstances, we may decide to carry a self-published title. This is almost always because the book is written by a long-time customer and friend of the store.

We regret that due to the volume of submissions we receive, we cannot comment upon or review individual books or manuscripts. Please note that unsolicited materials will not be returned unless accompanied with a self-addressed, postage-paid mailer.

Best of luck with your writing endeavors.


The Staff of The Book Stall
