Set your price. We recommend pricing your books at least 100% more than it costs you to buy them.
We'll list your books in the marketplace. We'll create your listing in the marketplace & on Instagram so you can tag and share your books.
Share with your audience. Tell your readers they can now buy signed books & get exclusive swag.
Sit back and let the orders flow in. We pack and ship your orders within 3 business days.

Ready to take the next step?
Please note: Applying is the first step and does not guarantee a spot in The Signed Book Store.
We allow you to provide a unique reading experience to your readers with exclusive swag they can't get anywhere else. This allows you to give readers a more customized experience at a reduced commission cost.
Because each author and book is different, we'll review your application and marketing plan within 48 hours and get back to you with an answer.
You can send us autographed books or, to keep costs down, just send us bookplates or create some with your digital signature.
Yes! You can include any kind of flat book swag and are responsible for sending it direct to us.
That's up to you. You can use this service until your inventory runs out, for launch months, special sales or something else.
Please note: you are responsible for paying for shipping if you'd like any inventory returned to you.
95% of our audience is based in the United States. However, we do ship to Canada, the UK and Australia.
We take care of collecting and remitting taxes. You are sent a statement of earnings each year.
We require a minimum of 10 books. If you've never sold direct before, we recommend starting with 10-20 books and offering exclusive swag for readers.
Keeping in mind that the average customer spends $83, hardcovers with dust jackets or exclusive editions perform best in the shop. We strongly recommend a new release and adding as much unique swag as possible.
Hi, I'm Angela
An international bestselling author who makes six figures selling books directly to readers. In 2019 I started selling direct to readers and was stunned by the response.
After 2 years of learning the pros and cons of selling direct, my husband and I decided to open The Signed Book Shop and give more authors the opportunity to benefit from selling in a shared marketplace.
Additionally, I also build custom websites for authors and provide marketing consults.
