Submit Your Book

Here’s How It Works

Submit a review copy of your book, author bio and any excerpts of reviews physically or courier to our store at Greenhouse Mall, Ngong rd.

Once your book is accepted, we will send you an agreement with the terms of the consignment. We offer authors a 70/30 split in your favor for the sale of your book.

All you have to do is provide us with 5-10 copies of your book at a time! You’ll get paid on a monthly basis based on monthly sales of your book. You decide if and when you want to stop selling your book with us.

Author Benefits

Take some of the pressure off of you by having someone dedicated to marketing and promoting your book

Have your book featured among other authors published with larger publishers to gain credibility

Gain visibility and recognition outside of your routine markets

Expand your community and reach readers in different regions

You set the price for the books you want to sell. If this is your first time selling, we can help you with book pricing. All books are sold through our physical store website, our social media markets, and during our in-person traveling markets.

There is no fee associated with selling your books with us. You make money as we sell your book. We offer a commission split of 70/30 in favor of the author. We will reach out to you when we run out of our stock.

All inventory is tracked through our sales platform, so we track every time your book sells. At the end of each month, you will receive a sales report for the quantities sold. You can then invoice us based on the sales report and we will settle payment within 30 days of invoice receipt. Please note that we will not provide any sales report if no quantities have sold in a particular month.

Soma Nami Books is always promoting our books on our social media, as well as to all of our email subscribers. Please note that marketing and promotion is however not an entitlement but an additional benefit we can offer an author. Soma Nami Books is under no obligation to market your books and this should not be expected as part of this consignment arrangement.

We will however work collaboratively with the author to capitalize on marketing opportunities. Feel free to promote to your audience that they can buy the book from us as well!
