Local Authors


As an independent bookstore, The Curiosity Shop is proud to support new and local authors. Whether you are published by a major publisher, independent press, or yourself, we encourage you to submit your book for consideration at our store.

If you are a self-published or non-traditionally published author, we offer a consignment program to have shelf space for your book(s) for a designated amount of time. You can learn more about our consignment program here.

If you’d like The Curiosity Shop to consider carrying your book, please fill out our submission form. We do not accept walk-in or telephone inquiries to the store. Please allow at least two weeks for a response at this time.

If you do not reside in Iowa and would like us to consider your book for our curation, you can send an email to imcurious@pellacuriosityshop.com.
