Colorado Author Consignment Program



If you are a Colorado writer, we would love to hear from you!

Tattered Cover is proud to be a community led book store and have the opportunity to stock books from local writers.  Please reach out to us at with a brief letter introducing yourself and your book. Please be sure to include your bio, a brief book description, the ISBN number of your book, and its retail price.  Blurbs and reviews -- as well as any cover art -- are also welcome.

Books published recently (2019 and later) are eligible for the Colorado Author Partnership at the Tattered Cover.  Through this initiative we are able to consider books for consignment on our shelves.  Consignment is a 60/40 retail split with the author getting 60% of their sales with us.  There is no fee for consignment at our store.



All books will be considered according to the following criteria:


  • Colorado Residency
  • ISBN number
  • Name & title printed clearly on spine
  • Published 2019 or later
  • Clearly written, topical original, 
    and unique
  • Well edited, finely bound
  • A marketable design and price point
  • Quality professional blurbs and reviews
  • Sales history, local events, and media about your  book will be strongly considered




We are looking forward to connecting with you and learning more about your book and your connection to our community!  Once you have sent us an email introducing your book, we will be back in contact with you shortly.  If we are interested in considering your book for sale at our store, we will request a review copy for further consideration.  Please do not send us a review copy, digital or otherwise, until we have requested one from you.
