LOCAL AUTHORS AND BOOK CONSIGNMENT
Thank you for your interest in selling your books through Village House of Books. Local authors enrich the community and we are delighted to support you.
CONTACTING VILLAGE HOUSE OF BOOKS
Due to the increasing number of authors who have reached out to us, we now have a separate email exclusively for author contacts. If you would like to introduce yourself, arrange a book consignment or author event, please email us at
We will be able to respond to you more quickly from this e-mail.
DO WE CARRY BOOKS FROM INDEPENDENTLY-PUBLISHED AUTHORS?
Short answer: Yes, we do!
Our store is relatively small, so we cannot carry every book that we are offered, but Village House of Books tries to carry a wide selection of titles that we believe will interest our community.
If you would like to talk to someone about your book, please make an appointment by calling the store at (408) 354-7100 or by e-mailing us at
firstname.lastname@example.org We would hate for you to come all the way out to the store only to find that the person you wish to speak to isn’t there!
CAN I DROP OFF A COPY OF MY BOOK FOR SOMEONE TO LOOK AT LATER?
Please do not leave a copy of your book with us unless we have already made arrangements through e-mail or during an appointment. We have a small staff and want to ensure they are not over-committed so they can give each book the attention it deserves.
HOW DOES CONSIGNMENT AT VILLAGE HOUSE OF BOOKS WORK?
If we decide to carry your book, the following Terms and Conditions will apply:

Compensation: You will receive a check once a month if any of your books sell.
Quantity: We will take a maximum of 3 copies per title.
Sales Period: Books will remain on our store shelves for 90 days. At the end of the sales period, the books will either be renewed for another 90 days or returned to the author. Books that have not been picked up 30 days after the consignment period ends will be donated.
