Want to get your book into the store?

Are you a self published author? A small press? Want to know how to get a book onto our shelves? Read on.

Self Published?

We partner with DartFrog Books for self published book distribution. DartFrog will evaluate your book to ensure it meets the standard-of-excellence bookstores like us require. They then distribute the books that do to a network of partner bookstores (including us). We rely on our partners at DartFrog to evaluate and select the best self-published books. Any direct inquiries for consignment will be referred to DartFrog.

Small Press?

We order all books through Ingram and Baker & Taylor distributors. If you're a small press, and your books are available via one of these distributors, that's great! Just let us know about your books, and we'll look into ordering them. If your books aren't available via regular distribution channels, feel free to shoot us an e-mail at tubbyandcoos@gmail.com. Before e-mailing, please review our website to ensure you have books that will fit with the store.  Keep in mind we are a niche store that specializes in science fiction, fantasy, and children's books. If you're a self published author with your own small press, you will be referred to DartFrog.

Something Else?

If you don't fall into one of the first two categories, and you'd still like to get a book onto our shelves, feel free to e-mail us at tubbyandcoos@gmail.com. We can't guarantee a response based on the volume of e-mails we get, but if we're interested, we'll get back to you. Before e-mailing, please review our website to ensure you have books that will fit with the store. Keep in mind we are a niche store that specializes in science fiction, fantasy, and children's books. If you're self published, you will get referred to DartFrog.
