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 a review copy of your book to:


Boogie Down Books

517 E. 139 St. #1092

Bronx, NY 10454


We will follow up with next steps if we are able to move forward. Please note that review copies will not be returned, and we are unable to provide feedback or explanations for any decisions.
