FAQ: How to Get Us to Sell Your Book, etc

Dear Author, Publicist, or Program Presenter,
Thank you for your interest in sharing your work with Charis. We are committed to supporting local independent authors and would not be the space that we are without you! While we make an effort to evaluate every book submitted to us for consideration, please understand that we receive a substantial volume of requests every day and may not be able to personally respond to every one of them. We are proud to be a small, mission-driven feminist bookstore that carefully curates our shelves. Each book must fit our store's mission and speak to the interests of the people we serve. Together with our non-profit programming partner Charis Circle, Charis Books exists to foster sustainable feminist communities, work for social justice, and encourage the expression of diverse and marginalized voices. Knowing our store and the kinds of events we promote is the most important prerequisite to requesting the stocking of your book (it also helps to be a customer and program attendee!).  A friendly word of advice, Amazon.com is not an independent distributor, they are our competition, and we will frown at you if you suggest we can just "buy your book on Amazon." Please read everything below...
