Local Author Book Submission

Dog·Eared Books is proud to support local writers and contribute to a thriving local writing community. Due to the volume of requests we receive from area writers wishing to sell in our store, as well as limited shelf space, we cannot carry every title submitted to us. Special consideration will be given to Ames and Story County writers.

Unfortunately, we are not able to respond to every submission, but please know we sincerely appreciate the time you took to fill out the form and share your work with us. If we decide to carry your book, we will follow-up with you with instructions for next steps within three weeks.

We do not consider out-of-state submissions for the local authors section. If you do not reside in Iowa and would like us to consider your book for our curation, you can send an email to ellyn@dogearedbooksames.com. 

*Books brought or sent to the store without being requested by Dog-Eared Books are considered free review copies.
