Author Consignments


Thank you for your interest in placing your book at Bear Pond. If your book has been published by an established publisher, and we decide to carry it, we will purchase it directly from that publisher. If that is the case, you are welcome to send us notification of your book's publication to

If your book is self-published or not readily available through our normal wholesalers (i.e., Baker & Taylor or Ingram), we may offer you the opportunity to sell it at the store on a consignment basis. We are happy to support local authors through our consignment program and do our best to provide shelf space for your books.  We do, however, keep in mind our inventory needs and the interests of our customers.

Our normal terms for booksales accepted for consignment are 60/40, i.e., we take a 40% discount on your consignment price. On consignment, the book remains the property of the consignor until sold and Bear Pond Books is not responsible for lost or stolen merchandise.
