For Local Authors
If you are a local author with a publishing contract with a New York publisher, we would love to get an advance reading copy of your forthcoming book so that we can help start some early buzz for you. We can read print or digital galleys. They can be sent to the store at:
1175 Woods Crossing Rd #5

Stocking Your Books
If you live in the Carolinas or your books are set in North or South Carolina, we would be happy to stock your books at Fiction Addiction.
If your books are available on a returnable basis from our distributors (Baker & Taylor or Ingram) at standard discount then we will place them on our next order and keep them in stock for 6 months. Stocking after that time period will depend on sales.
If your books are not available from one of our distributors or are only available on a nonreturnable basis then we charge a processing fee of $25.00 per title and will take 2-5 copies of each book on consignment. The processing fee covers our time entering books in the system and contacting you quarterly regarding sales/payments. Please review our consignment agreement. Note that we do not pay freight for consignment books -- they must be dropped off or the freight paid by the author.
If you don't wish to leave your books on consignment with us, click here to learn about and sign up with the Ingram Spark program, where you can manage the printing and distribution of your books, including making them available to us (as long as they are available on a returnable basis and at standard discount), as well as other retailers.
In return, we ask that you mention Fiction Addiction as a sales outlet when promoting your books and consider linking to us on our website. We can provide you with a targeted link that we will take customers directly to your books.
Email us a stocking request.
If you will be speaking to a local bookclub, please let us know so that we can make sure we have adequate stock on hand.
If you will be doing any local school visits, please refer us to the school as a source for your books. We are happy to offer schools a 20% discount for author visit orders.
We have independent authors' celebrations twice a year on the Saturday after the 4th of July (Love Your Indie Day) and the Saturday after Thanksgiving (Small Business Saturday). Preference will be given to authors with new books or who have not participated in the event before. To sign up, please email us.
If you would like to be considered for a standalone in-store event, please email us an event request. If you are self-published or with a small press that is not distributed by a major New York publisher then we charge an event promotion fee. Please see our small press signings document for information about the various standalone events available and their respective fees.
Official Source for Personalized Copies
If you frequently get requests for signed or inscribed books, but are tired of dealing with shipping, money handling, etc., Fiction Addiction would be happy to be your exclusive source. You would simply direct your readers to our website and we would arrange a schedule for you to stop by and inscribe any orders received. Fiction Addiction would handle all the payment and shipping.
Email us a request to become your official provider of signed books.

Writing Group Resources
Many authors are part of a writing group. Click here to see a list of local writing groups. The link contains contact information, so if you are interested in joining, please contact these groups directly.
If your group is open to the public but is not listed, please contact us if you would like your group added to our web page.
Support Fiction Addiction Through Kobo Ebooks
If your book is available as a Kobo ebook, we would greatly appreciate it if you would include our affiliate code in any Kobo links on your website. All you do is add ?utm_medium=web&utm_source=ABA20G7881 to the end of whatever URL you were planning to use. For instance, the regular link to my dad's book, Penelope, is http://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/penelope-a-novel-of-new-amsterdam. The version with our affiliate code is: http://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/penelope-a-novel-of-new-amsterdam?utm_medium=web&utm_source=ABA20G7881. With the code, if someone creates a new Kobo account from your link, they become an affiliate of Fiction Addiction. The code does not affect pricing or customers who already had a Kobo account.
If you control your ebook rights then it is free to publish your book on Kobo. Simply visit Kobo Writing Life to learn more. If you need help converting your book to epub format, my dad sells this service to authors. Just email me and I'll put you in touch with him.
