SCHEDULING AN EVENT

We offer two programs: the Author Showcase and the Meet & Greet.

  • Author Showcase: These are multi-author events in which each presenter speaks for 10 minutes, followed by a Q&A period for the panel. They feature 3 or 4 authors at a time and take place on one Thursday evening per month. We normally book them at least 2 months in advance. Currently, they are online only via Zoom.

  • Meet & Greet: We provide a table at the front of the store and a two-hour window during which authors can chat with customers as they shop. This is not a sit-down author talk. Meet & Greet events take place on weekend days.

If you’d like to be considered for one of these programs, please email us at events@gallerybookshop.com.

 

SELLING BOOKS AND MERCHANDISE ON CONSIGNMENT

  • Payments for book sales are made four times a year, by the end of the month following each quarter. (April, July, October, and January)

  • Authors receive 60% of the retail sale price; Gallery Bookshop retains 40%.

  • A $25.00 one-time service fee is required for each title. This fee helps pay for the extra labor involved in tracking inventory and making individual payments.

  • We require a signed Consignment Agreement Form (attached below).

  • It is the author’s responsibility to deliver new inventory and pick up any unsold inventory.

  • If the book sales are very low or nonexistent after a reasonable length of time (typically three to six months), we will discontinue carrying the book on our shelves and will ask you to pick up the unsold inventory.

  • If these terms are agreeable, please feel free to drop off 3 or 4 books, the completed and signed agreement form, and the service fee at the shop.

  • Typically, it takes one to two weeks for new books to be processed and put on our shelves. As with all inventory we carry in the store, we retain the right for any final decision to not carry a book if we believe it doesn’t fit the store’s philosophy or our market.

  • Please feel free to contact the Consignment Program Director at info@gallerybookshop.com.

  • Unsolicited review copies will not be returned.
