About Us

NW Book Lovers is a blog by and about authors, librarians and independent booksellers in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington. If you’re interested in the literary Northwest, it’s for you.

How to contribute

Readers, tell us what you’re reading, or contribute comments to any of our posts. Your reviews and blurbs might end up on One Nightstand. Send us your ideas and suggestions here.

For advertising opportunities visit our Ad Rates page or contact Brian Juenemann.

Booksellers, tell us what’s in your stack and what you’re most excited to handsell, and email us with those funny anecdotes about happenings and things overheard in your store. Did someone ask for a copy of Lionel Richie and the Wardrobe? We want to hear about that and turn it into a Storefront feature. Send us book recommendations for Face Out, and tell us what’s selling—especially those titles that might be off our radar.

Northwest authors, drop a line to introduce yourself and let us know if you might be interested in sharing a “NW Voices” essay or “Conversations” piece to introduce yourself and your work to NW readers. We gets fresh NW indie content and you get the NWBL spotlight. It’s a win-win! Books must be available for click-through purchase on IndieBound, Bookshop, or from a PNBA member store.

Publishers, publicists, and regional sales reps, send us your comments about NW books and authors, or titles that you think will have special relevance to Northwest readers. Send us copies of the books and point us in the direction of blurbs, reviews, articles, essays and blog posts. And we sincerely hope that you will encourage indie booksellers to send us their comments about your books.
