For Authors

Thank you for your interest in our store! The Book Loft of German Village works with hundreds of authors each year in our store and at off-site events across Central Ohio. We value these relationships and any inquiry will be responded to promptly. Please review the information below and contact us with any further questions you would like answered.




  • Is your title available and returnable from wholesalers like Ingram with, at least, a 40% discount? Please contact us and let us know about your book! 


  • Is your book self-published or only available through limited distribution? If you are from Ohio or your book is Ohio-centric, we are happy to work with you on a consignment basis. In order to qualify, consignment titles must have an ISBN number and a spine labeled with the title and the author's name. Due to the effort it takes to display, monitor, and pay quarterly for the consignment titles in our store, we ask for a one-time processing fee of $10.00 per title. For more information about our consignment program, please contact us.


The Book Loft is temporarily putting a hold on our consignment program. We value our relationships with the many talented authors in Central Ohio and to serve the community better, we are revamping our procedures and evaluating the hundreds of consignment titles currently on our shelves. 




  • Are you a touring author and would like to have an event in our store? If the book you are promoting is available to us directly through regular distribution, please contact us and let us know the available dates you will be in Columbus, OH. 


  • Are you a published or self-published local author and would like to have an event in our store? We routinely host book talks and readings on weeknights or will schedule meet and greets on Sunday afternoons for authors that want to take advantage of our weekend foot traffic. Consignment authors have the opportunity to team up with other local participants for our monthly local literary festivals. Please contact us for more information.
