I’m a Local Author

I’m a local author, can you carry my book? Congratulations on the publication of your book! Though we are unable to carry every book published locally, we would love to hear about yours so we can determine if it’s a good fit for the store. Please submit your book for consideration using this form.

I’m in a local book club.

Does Dog-Eared Books provide any perks?

Buying from Dog·Eared Books

If your book club purchases a minimum of 6 books for your group, we will provide a 10% discount.

Meeting at Dog·Eared Books

If your book club purchases its books from Dog·Eared Books, you may reserve our loft space for your book club meeting free of charge. You may reserve the space at the time you place your order. Note: We cannot accommodate groups larger than 10 at this time.

Are pets allowed in the store?

Although we would LOVE to meet your furry friends, because we serve food and beverage, service dogs only are allowed in the store.

Most days, our own service/shop dog, Lovie, will be in the store and would love to receive pets and cuddles. If you do not wish to interact with her, that’s no problem. She has a special spot she can go hang out at.
