So, who's buying the books?

We let all our authors choose whether they would like us to provide their books or if they want to bring their own.

We Purchase the Books

We keep all profits. Unfortunately, as an independent bookstore, we work on thin margins and cannot afford to reduce our earnings.

You Bring the Books

You get 70% of all sales of your book(s). We keep 30% to cover credit card fees, labor, and overhead.

What's next?

If all that sounds good to you, please fill out the form below, and our event coordinator, Bevin, will contact you soon! If you need to reach her directly, please email bevin@panyanbooks.com.
