Annihilation Score by Charles Stross Dominique O’Brien—her friends call her Mo—lives a curious double life with her husband, Bob Howard. To the average civilian, they’re boring middle-aged civil servants.
The Well by Catherine Chanter Set in a modern-day Britain where water is running out everywhere except at the farm of one seemingly ordinary family whose mysterious good fortune leads to a shocking act of violence, The Well is “extraordinary...a mesmerizing read…combining a gripping mystery, nuanced psychological drama, and striking prose” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).  
How Were You Born by Kate Cayley How You Were Born is a collection of short stories looking at the bizarre, the tragi-comic and the unbelievable elements that run through our lives.
Strength of Conviction by Tom Mulcair The inside story of Tom Mulcair’s rise from modest, middle-class beginnings to the threshold of power.
Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee Much has been made of the release of Go Set a Watchman, and too much of that has centred around the leaked news that the novel contains a very different Atticus Finch than you might remember from the beloved To Kill a Mockingbird.  

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. Please read this advice and insight from a long standing bookseller that may be of some help. (Insights on the book biz) Michael Neill is the owner of Mosaic Books in Kelowna, B.C.

Our consignment contract is for four months and Perfect Books receives 40% of the retail price of the book. A $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.
