Authors and Publicists - Event Inquiries
If you would like us to consider a proposal for an event (please see the document available below) or wish to discuss how Booksmith might be able to help you promote your book, please email tickets (at) booksmith (dot) com.


Regarding Consignments

The Booksmith is dedicated to offering a diverse selection of quality books and magazines from traditional and nontraditional publishers. Currently, however, we do not carry books on a consignment basis. 
We're happy to consider carrying titles that are available through standard distribution channels, like Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Partners West, etc. on a returnable, standard-discount basis. If you have a book you'd like The Booksmith to consider carrying, we recommend looking into a program like Ingram's Spark self-publishing, or another, similar program that offers bundled distribution services.
If you have a book you'd like us to consider carrying, and it is available through standard distribution channels, we welcome you to email your title and ISBN to buyer [at] booksmith [dot] com. We thank you for your submission. Please be advised that we don't accept manuscript or complimentary copy submissions, and that because of the volume of submissions we receive, we are only able to respond to authors whose books we will be carrying.

Job Applicants
If you would like to apply for a job or an internship at Booksmith, please send us an email at jobs (at) Booksmith (dot) com.  Please note that due to the high volume of applications, we are unable to respond to every applicant individually.


Donation Requests

Booksmith is happy to consider requests for donations. Our contribution philosophy favors working with a small number of local organizations that are doing innovative or critical work in the field of literacy. Other requests are evaluated on a case by case basis. As a policy, we make donations of books, magazines, Booksmith tote bags and tickets to our events. Please email your request to donations [at] booksmith [dot] com. We kindly ask that you do not call the store regarding your request. We try to respond to all email requests within 48 hours.
