If you are an author with a published book that you are interested in having us carry in store, please email us at info@russellbooks.com. Include the following information about your books:

  • Title
  • Subject matter
  • Publication date
  • Marketing plan
  • Events you have been a part of
  • Critical reviews
  • Any other pertinent information 

Please keep in mind that we are a predominantly second hand bookstore, and any new books we sell are at a discounted price. Although we love and support our local authors and the literary community in Victoria, we are not always able to stock new titles due to the nature of our store and inventory. 

Books we consider are often within the genre of best selling and popular new releases, and books of local interest. 

We thank you for your interest!
