Orca Books' Consignment Program

Orca Books is the largest independent bookstore in Olympia, Washington located in the heart of downtown’s vibrant shopping district. We stock new and used books, cards, and journals, and are proud to carry a wide selection of works by local authors and artists.

 

WHAT WE LOOK FOR

  • - Work that is self-published and/or not readily available from our wholesalers Baker & Taylor or Ingram (if the wholesaler discount is 35% or less).
  • - Local authors (South Puget Sound).
  • - Proofread, fully-edited work with little to no typographical errors.

 

HOW OUR PROCESS WORKS

All consignment inquires are best communicated through our email: consignment@orcabooks.com.

Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays are the best days for potential works to be reviewed and processed immediately. These are also the best days to call with inquiries. Otherwise, please expect a time frame of about a week for us to complete the process and communicate back with you.
