Independent Authors

Because we have a limited, well-edited selection of books, we are not able to carry many books from independent authors. If you’re an author who wants to see your book on the shelves at Church Street Coffee & Books, please email us a short (250-word or less) summary including why you believe you’re a good fit for our store with the subject line “Author Inquiry.” Include your contact information, and please be patient when waiting for a response — it takes us up to six months to process independent author inquiries. (After all, we spend a lot of our time making lattes and in the kitchen making Breakup Cookies!) We only take independently published and small press books on consignment, and we insist on common industry markups. Please be aware of these restrictions in advance.
