Author Request Form
Thank you for your interest in having your book carried by or having an author event at WordsWorth Books. Prior to submitting, please read below for information on our requirements. Books that are not able to meet our requirements will not be considered for our inventory or an event. Due to the volume of requests we receive we are not able to accommodate in-person or over the phone meetings regarding books for consideration.
Please DO NOT drop off or mail copies of your book to WordsWorth Books for inventory consideration. We do NOT accept inventory requests via any channel except this form. Books mailed to or dropped off at WordsWorth Books become the property of WordsWorth Books and will NOT be returned.
To be eligible for consideration your book must:
- Be bound, with clear and legible title and author information on the cover and the spine. No books with stapled or spiral binding will be considered.
- Have cover images of good quality. Images and text cannot be pixelated and all text must be legible.
- Have a valid ISBN and barcode
- Meet our sales terms: We require a 40% discount and free freight; all books must be fully returnable. It is preferable that it is available from Ingram.
We are especially interested in recently published books by Little Rock/Central Arkansas authors, or books on Little Rock and Arkansas history, travel, and interest. However, we will consider books on any subject, fiction or non-fiction, from local authors that have been published in the past year.
PLEASE NOTE: It is our experience that books by local authors sell best when the author promotes the book and lets people know that the book is available from WordsWorth Books. Except in rare cases, if all of your friends and family have already purchased your book, it is unlikely that having it on our shelves or having a book signing/author event will generate sales.
You should expect to receive a response from our events manager in about two weeks. Our response may be delayed during the holiday shopping season - from mid-November until early January. The decisions made are final.
