Submit your book to Indy Reads for consignment

Indy Reads is proud to support Indiana-affiliated authors through our consignment program, which allows us to carry and feature a much wider variety of self-published and print-on-demand titles than we could through traditional purchasing. 

  • Books must have a spine displaying the title and author’s name (no spiral-bound books). 
  • You will provide three copies of the book, as an initial consignment, and can provide additional copies, if requested.

We prefer that consignment requests be made in writing, via email at To submit a book for consideration, please email:

  • the book title and ISBN (if you have one)
  • a one-paragraph summary
  • your contact information
  • price information
  • promotional materials, publicity plans, target audience, and any connections to Indy Reads and/or Indiana

Walk-ins are also acceptable, but we may not be able to make an immediate decision. 

If we feel your book may have a market with our customers, we will contact you. The decision made by Indy Reads is final. 

As with all inventory we carry in the store, we retain the right for any final decision not to carry a book if we believe it doesn’t fit Indy Reads’ core values or our market. 

We do our best to provide shelf space for consignment books, while still keeping in mind our inventory needs and the interests of our customers. We look forward to reviewing your work and thank you for your interest in Indy Reads.
