For Local Authors
Love Your Indie Author/Bookstore Celebration!
Saturday, July 6, 2013 from 10:00am - 6:00pm
Did you know that four of our 2012 store bestsellers were small press titles?
On July 6th, we will celebrate the underdog writers . . . the mavericks and the believers! Come meet these brave scribe warriors who are putting themselves out there, sometimes at their own expense, because they've got a story to tell.
Full schedule of authors will be listed as soon as we have them.
Meanwhile, if you are a self-published or small press author who is interested in participating, please contact owner Jill Hendrix by messaging her via our Facebook page
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.
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.
If you would like to be considered for an 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 event types 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.
