If you are an independent author/s and would like us to consider stocking your book please see the Booksellers Association Guide in the link below, and our guidance (further down the page) prior to contacting us to consider your book.
Please note we are currently not accepting any new titles from authors directly until July 2019. We will not be able to assess all emails sent before then, so please see the advice below for July 2019 onwards. Unless your book is available through wholesalers (on stnadard terms) then please delay contacting us until July 2019 or later when we will be able to consider your book as below.
Here is a handy guide written by experienced bookseller Sheila O’Reilly and produced by the Booksellers Association with tips and advice from high street booksellers to help authors get their book stocked in a bookshop…
If you would like us to consider your book then please follow these simple steps to ensure we have enough information to make an informed decision…
We are a very small team at Imagined Things, and have lots of requests to stock titles, therefore it can take a while for us to review each email. If we are interested in hearing more or seeing the book then we will get in touch with you usually within six weeks. We do consider every book we’re sent but regret we do not have the capacity to respond to all requests individually.
Please do not send us your book in the post as we’re unable to review all titles we’re sent and will not be able to send it back to you. If we would like to see your book then we’ll ask by responding to your email.
Thank you for your interest in having your book stocked at Imagined Things!
