Local Authors

pb_authorWe are happy to support local authors who have self-published their work. To that end we've created a special area in the store that is dedicated to local, self-published writers.

Before we begin, we need to make sure for both of us that your book fits with our market so drop by with a copy of your book.

Our consignment contract is for four months with a $25 fee and Perfect Books receives 40% of the retail price of the book. The $25 fee covers our costs of managing the book in our store AND entitles you to one in-store signing at a mutually agreeable date. (Drop by the store and pick up a copy of our consignment brochure for details)

If the book does well we will be calling you to restock the item. And at the end of the four month term we can settle up and discuss whether our store is the right place for your work.

Please contact Jim Sherman, the owner, for further information.
