We love having your books on our shelves, and want you to love reading ours! If you decide to consign at Hub City Bookshop we ask you to support us by signing up for a Hub Writers Project Membership so we can continue to support authors and their work. Members receive 10% off all their purchases, 20% New York Times Bestsellers and 25% off Hub City Press books.
We begin our consignment process with an event request. This form can be found on our Bookshop page. If Hub City thinks your book would be a good fit, we will offer them on consignment at the event.
Please refrain from calling or visiting the store with application questions as our on-duty booksellers do not field consignment program questions.
We generally host two types of events:
An Open-House Signing: usually held on Saturday mornings or weekdays at 5pm, the open house signing is a great opportunity for local fans to meet and greet authors. It's better for the author, as well, who has potential readers walking in the door all the time.
A Reading/Signing: these events feature a talk from the author about the writing of the book and a short reading. Afterwards there is a Q&A and then the author signs books. These events are usually at 6pm on a weeknight.
We will post established author events to this website, Facebook, and Instagram. We also have signage in the store. If suitable for the event, will work with authors and publicists to capture local media attention. Authors are also encouraged to do their own promotion.
