      Independent Author Policy and Agreement


       Technology has made independent publishing easier, often without professional editing, proofreading, and market evaluation. Because our space is limited, we cannot sell every published title, whether it be from a major publisher or from a self-published author. Just as we do when determining which books to buy from a publisher’s catalog, we consider several factors when deciding to carry titles from independent authors. These include the subject matter, production quality, retail price, and, of greatest importance, whether the book will appeal to our customers.


      Due to the economics of carrying and selling books by independent authors, it is our policy to take such book on consignment. If we decide to carry your book, we will ask you to sign an agreement as follows:


      1)      Consigned books may be left at Blue Willow Bookshop for six months.

      2)      Distribution of sales receipts for consigned books will be 60% to Consignor/Author and 40% to Blue Willow Bookshop.

      3)      Consignor may call us periodically to check on sales activity and may request payment at any time for books sold.

      4)      In the event that all copies are sold, the Consignor will be given the opportunity to sign a new agreement for additional copies of the book.

      5)      At the end of six months, it is the Consignor’s responsibility to pick up any unsold copies of the consigned book. If the author does not pick up the books at the end of the six-month period, the books will become the property of Blue Willow Bookshop and may be donated or disposed of at our discretion.


      Thank you for your interest in Blue Willow Bookshop and best of luck with your book.
