VIVLIO HILL Publishing supports all types of authors and is happy to provide a retail outlet for books published through non-traditional publishing sources. When your book is self-published, or is available only on a non-returnable basis, we will work directly with you to sell your book on consignment.
Our consignment program is an agreement between you, the author, and VIVLIO HILL Publishing, to offer your book for sale in our store and to three other bookstore chains within our connections. By leaving your books with us, you agree to abide by the guidelines below:
When you leave your books on consignment with us, we will:
Note: We will contact you at the end of your 3 month consignment period, but it is your responsibility to pick up any unsold books at that time. Any books left beyond the consignment period will be disposed of by VIVLIO HILL Publishing. We will only pay you for books that are sold. Damaged or stolen items are your sole financial responsibility.
If you would like us to carry your book on consignment, here’s what you must agree to do:
After your consignment term is over, if you wish to extend it for an additional three or six months, the same fee of $499 additional will apply.
*Authors who have sold five or more copies during the three month period will have the re-consignment fee waived.
Note: VIVLIO HILL Publishing reserves the right to refuse any book proffered for consignment deemed unsuitable for sale in the store.
We know what an enormous amount of dedication writing a book can take. Whether your book winds up on the shelves of VIVLIO HILL or not, please know that we appreciate the effort, care and creativity that has brought you this far. Now for the hard part - getting it sold !
When thinking about marketing your book in our store - remember, we want all of your hard work to be rewarding, both for us and for you.
