Book Consignment Program

Book Consignment is an arrangement between self-published and/or small press local authors and Spellbound Books to sell titles from our brick-and-mortar store for a specific period. The policies below were created to enable us both to have the most successful experience. 

At this time, we do not stock the following genres: 

If an application is approved, the Author will pay a one-time non-refundable stocking fee of $15.00. Once payment is received, Authors can elect to mail their copies or drop them off in person. We recommend you sign all of your copies. We will display up to three (3) copies of your book in our Local Authors shelf. Books must have an ISBN and a barcode.

The initial Consignment Period is for 60 days. If your books do not sell during this period, the Book Consignment Contract ends and cannot be renewed again in the future. We will contact the Author at the end of the Consignment Period to pick up unsold books. If the books need to be mailed back to you, we will request the cost of shipping in advance. All books must be picked up/shipped out within fourteen (14) days of the end of the Consignment Period or they will be donated.

If one to three (2-3) copies sell during the consignment period, the Author and Spellbound Books may elect to extend the Book Consignment Contract for an additional 60 day period. No stocking fees will be charged for extensions.

Sales will be shared between the Author and Spellbound Books. The Author will receive 60% of the sale proceeds and Spellbound Books will receive 40% of the proceeds. Payment to the Author will be made at the end of each Consignment Period. The Author has the choice of receiving payment via Zelle or PayPal as indicated on their application.

DISCLOSURE: Spellbound Books will do everything within its control to secure and protect books during the consignment period. Spellbound Books is not responsible for theft, loss, or damage to books consigned.


Applications will be reviewed on a first come, first serve basis. We will respond to all applications with an approval or rejection within 1 week.
