Information for Independent Authors

We love working with independent authors, especially those in the NYC area. We feature work by self-published authors and illustrators at our pop-up bookshop, at Boogie Down Storytime, and at other author events. In the past, we've worked with local self-published authors including Shanon Morris (pictured at right), Anthony Tucker, and Yajaira Eduardo.

Please note that we focus almost exclusively on books for children and teens. Because we are a bookstore-without-walls, we do not have our own brick-and-mortar space, and we are unable to carry many books. We use a highly selective process to determine which titles we will feature.

If you are interested in sharing your work with us for consideration, please send us the following:

  • a review copy of your book
  • your contact information
  • whether or not you'd like us to return your book to you after we've reviewed it
  • any other information you'd like us to know about you and your book

We will follow up with next steps if we are able to move forward.
