Hello book lovers!

Tales & Tomes is an independently-owned online bookstore on Gubbi Gubbi land, Australia.

We specialise in independently published Fantasy and Romance novels - from something with a bit of *spice* to a lot.

Diversity and representation are important to us. We make an effort to stock novels that are written by people who are, and/or feature POC, LGBTQIA+, disabilities, and neuro-diversity.

Thank you for supporting a small business!


Opening a bookstore has always been my dream, just not one I thought I'd ever actually get to achieve. But here I am, and I am so thankful for it! 

I have BIG goals for my little bookstore, including a storefront one day (must haves: coffee bar), maybe a book club (buddy reads anyone?), maybe some in-house designed bookish merch, and maybe even some Special Edition books or book boxes. The world is my oyster and you're just living in it. Or something?

Every purchase you make brings Tales & Tomes closer to achieving all of this and more. Maybe more, this is a lot of things tbh... 

Thank you for supporting a small business and my dreams.
