Local Authors

Our community is blessed with an incredible number of writers. We have everything from illustrators of delightful children's books to Pulitzer Prize winning poets; novelists to gardeners; spiritual healers to historians! These pages represent a sampling of this ever-growing number of artists.

If you live locally and have recently published a book, we'd be delighted to review your finished work and see if we can carry it. Take a moment to fill out our Local & Independent Author Submission Form here. Due to limited space within the store, we cannot guarantee every submission will be accepted, but we will do our best!
