Book Distribution 101

7:00 PM

How do I get my book into bookstores? That is a question asked by many publishers today. Will that choice help you achieve your goals for your book? Here are some other questions to consider:books

  • What is the difference between a wholesaler and a distributor?
  • Do you need or want a distributor?
  • Why would you want a distributor?
  • What are distributors looking for from publishers?
  • Who does the marketing—the distributor or the publisher or both?
  • What are the best ways to work more effectively with your distributor?

Our speaker will provide answers to these and more.
