Marketing your book

Thank you for your interest in Magic City Books, and congratulations on your book!

Our store is owned by the 501(c)(3) corporation, the Tulsa Literary Coalition. As an independent bookstore we have limited space and unfortunately are not always to say yes to stock independently published books year-round. If you are interested in having an event or want us to consider stocking your book on our shelves, please complete the Inventory/Event Form.

Due to the volume of requests, we cannot guarantee all requests will be selected but we do our best to support independent authors as a vital part of our community. In that effort, we now host the Magic City Book Bash, an annual block party to celebrate independently published authors. To be considered for the next Magic City Book Bash, you will need to complete the MCBB Application, which will open every fall and close each January for this spring event.

Other area resources for authors include Nimrod, Tulsa City-County Library’s annual Adult Creative Writing Contest, Oklahoma Writer’s Federation, Tulsa Night Writers, and Oklahoma Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (OSCBWI).

Algonquin Room rental

The Algonquin Room at Magic City Books is the perfect spot for your book group, professional meeting, or nonprofit retreat. We can configure the room to meet your needs and have a lectern, projector and sound system if you need it. The room accommodates 12 people comfortably around a large table or 30 with theater style seating. It can also be configured with tables and chairs. The fee for book groups is $25 per hour with a two-hour minimum. The fee for all other groups is $35 per hour with a two-hour minimum. Why the difference? Because fostering book clubs is part of our mission and we want to encourage book groups to use our space and take advantage of our services. The room is available from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday thru Saturday. Please use this form to request a reservation. Our staff will contact you within 48 hours to confirm your reservation and work out the details to ensure a positive experience for your group. Due to our heavy program schedule in the Algonquin Room, we take reservations no more than 35 days in advance. To submit a rental inquiry, click here.


We are proud to say we partner with over 100 existing nonprofit organizations, helping them achieve their missions by adding a literary component to their programs. We would love to hear more about your organization and what we might be able to accomplish together. Please visit our Contact Us page to start the conversation.
