In an effort to broaden our selection beyond traditional publishing channels and help authors reach more readers, Book Soup offers a consignment program. Through this, we carry and feature a wider variety of books, including independently published and print-on-demand titles. The consignment program fee helps cover costs related to carrying consignment books.

• Book Soup is proud to carry consignment books as part of our overall inventory. As such, we hold consignment books to the same high standards as the rest of our book inventory. All consignment books must be bound with legible titles on the spines. They must also be proofread and free of typos.

• Book Soup is great at selling books, but we don’t know much about publishing them. So, we don’t review manuscripts or offer advice on publishing manuscripts. If you’re looking for information on writing a book, check out our great selection of books on writing. For information on publishing, we recommend The Writer’s Market.

NOTE: Consignments are removed from the sales floor for approximately 2 weeks at the end of April/beginning of May for store inventory purposes. All consignment agreements are temporarily on hold during that time and consignment times will be extended accordingly.
