Local and Self-Published Authors

Congratulations on your new book! Eagle Harbor Book Company is proud of our connection with the local writing community and our long history of supporting Bainbridge Island and other local authors. We have provided shelf space to local and independent authors for five decades, providing a retail outlet for local authors to make their work available to our customers. We have discontinued our consignment program. For self-published books that we decide to carry, we will purchase them directly from the author or their representative. 

It is important to be aware that we evaluate many thousands of new books every year and we field hundreds of requests for author events. We are receiving stocking requests for both conventionally and self-published authors at a rate of dozens per week. Thank you for understanding that we cannot respond to phone calls or drop-in visits - all phone and in-person inquiries will be directed to this page. Unsolicited samples that are dropped off or mailed to us will be donated unread.

The process for getting your books to us is simple. Choose the situation that fits for you:
