FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a brick and mortar store?


No, we are an ONLINE children's bookstore only.




What kind of children's books are you looking for?


We look for all kinds of books that are written for children by Indie authors. We support the Indie author and Illustrator so our books are mainly self-published and outside the "norm" when it comes to topic and design in comparison to traditionally published books.




What if I sell my book on Amazon or other sites?


That's great! As a SELF PUBLISHED author we expect you to have your books on as many sites as possible in order to promote and get your book out there. Most of our authors have their books on Amazon, we encourage you to let people know to buy your book through our site if they are going to buy on Amazon anyways. This way they can be supporting a great cause and making a difference at the same time. We don't in-house books so we require you to provide ONE URL of where your book is sold and that is where the customer will be directed once they want to buy your book.




What is the purpose of your bookstore?


We believe in self expression and are here to help promote and support the works of Independent authors and Illustrators. We also believe in children and know that they should be able to have books about more diverse topics and issues. We seek out those books on diversity, girl power, mulitcultural and so forth, not your general cookie cutter books. Our drive and mission is to give back to underserved children. We partner up with children's organizations and give back by donating brand new books to promote the importance of literacy! For some, these donated books are the very first books they have ever owned. Help us by donating a book today by mailing it to: 18963 Ventura Blvd. Tarzana, Ca. 91356




How do I submit my book to your bookstore?


It's very simple. All you have to do is go to our "author submissions" tab and log in. Once you are there fill out the information about your book and choose a pricing plan that is right for you. Your book will then be displayed on our site within 24-48 hours.




What does it cost to have my book on your site?


We understand that as a self published author you obtain most if not all of the costs when it comes to your book. That's why we made it really affordable and probably the least expensive site out there where for less than a cup of coffee a month we can help promote your book.

We offer 3 different plans to choose from:
$3.99 per month (submitting up to 5 books)
$5.99 per month (submitting up to 10 books)
$39 for 12 months (submitting up to 20 books) Best Value!

Yes. You can cancel anytime just give us a 30 day notice by emailing us.




Do you guarantee book sales?


No. We do not guarantee book sales, whether your book is in an actual bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble or anywhere else no one can guarantee sales of your book. However, the more exposure your book gets, the more likely you will have sales. You are also the best salesperson for your book so make sure you spread the word of where your book is sold and be pro-active on marketing your work as well.




What charities do you work with?


Currently, since we are still in our growing phase we can not work with more than a few organizations, the more we continue to grow the more we will expand our wings. We are currently partnered with Casa Pacifica, a charity that provides hope and help to children and families. Our newest partner is RIF (Reading is Fundamental) of SoCal, the largest and most trusted literacy organization in Southern California. Together, we provide new books to help build and create home libraries for underserved children. We have a huge mission but with the help of community and gracious authors and illustrators that help by donating their books, anything is possible. We need to come together and erradicate illiteracy in underserved children in the United States. To help us reach more children, please donate a new book to 18963 Ventura Blvd. Tarzana Ca. 91356.
