Submission for Local Authors & Illustrators



For any author and illustrator interested in featuring their book on our website, or in our store please read the following:

First and foremost, we're so excited your book is written, published, and out in the world for readers to enjoy!

Please keep in mind we are a small independent bookstore, and do not have shelf room for every single book, as much as we wish we could, so we do have to be selective if it's the right fit for Second Star to the Right bookstore, and our customers.

Please note that not all books can be listed on our website. We can only list what our distributor has in stock.

For self-published local author and illustrators: 

You will fill out the form below, but please read the following before you do.

All required fields must be submitted in order for consideration. This form is for Colorado authors and illustrators only. We cannot buy from Amazon, as they are the main competitor for Independent Bookstores, and are putting these small businesses out of business. We do not take books on consignment. We can only purchase books through Ingram, with the standard industry discount, and through primary publishers and most of their imprints.

We will contact you if we are interested in carrying your book. If you haven't heard from us after two weeks, we have decided to not carry your book. Phone calls, social media DMs, and emails to the store for consideration will not be accepted. Please do not drop-off your book at our store, we will not be responsible for books left at the store.

If your book is selected, we can only house one copy in the store at a time because of our limited space. We will not be primarily responsible for promoting your book, and cannot guarantee it is a featured display, or boosted on our social media platforms.
