Author Book Submission Guidelines

As a small independent bookshop, we are dedicated to promoting indie authors to our reading community. We would love to feature your book(s) on our shelves and help spread the word about your work

Submission Guidelines

What is this and what are we offering?
  • Our aim is to shine a light on independent authors globally. Authors from all corners of the world are encouraged to submit their work.

  • Currently, we are exclusively considering novels. Short stories will be considered only if they are part of an anthology.

  • All submissions must be original creations; we do not accept fan-fiction.

  • Both self-published and traditionally published novels are welcomed, provided they have a physical manuscript.

  • As a small independent bookstore, we promise to review submissions promptly and make selections conscientiously.

  • Selected novels will be showcased in-store at The Book's Better Bookshop for a minimum of six months.

  • We will actively promote chosen works on social media platforms and organize author events, whether in-store or online.

  • Please share some details about your work, such as its premise, genre, content warnings, or any other pertinent information you would like us to consider.

  • All accepted submissions will be placed exclusively on a consignment basis.
