Established by Toneal M. Jackson, APS Books & More first opened its doors on May 1, 2015 inside of Chicago’s Ford City Mall. Contrary to Books A Million and Barnes and Noble, APS Books & More specializes in showcasing the works of independent authors across the globe. Excluding erotica, and street lit (along with any other materials excessively vulgar or profane), this bookstore features a plethora of genres enjoyed by readers of all ages and races.
Offering services such as author and entrepreneur consignments; book signings; seminars and workshops; talent shows…and more, this unique book boutique provides its patrons with a bookstore experience unlike any other.
If you’re an independent author looking to have your book displayed inside of the bookstore, choose from one of the following options:
1) Pay $50 for 30 days of wall space and receive 50% commission.
2) Pay $60 for 30 days of wall space and receive 60% commission
3) Pay $75 for 30 days of wall space and receive a free 2-hr book signing with 50% commission
If you have multiple books and/or would like to display your book for multiple months, there are discounts for those options as well. All packages allow you to send business cards and promo materials for distribution.
APS Books & More is Home to the Independent Author, so we are here to showcase your work. Yes, there is a monthly fee, but it’s because we provide a monthly service. We are open 5 days a week with a dedicated staff devoted to selling your books. Of course, as with any other Expo, sales are not guaranteed, but we can definitely provide you with exposure!
