Working with Bookstores

IN-PERSON …Saturday, November 6, 2021

This is a Vaccinated Event

Authoring and publishing a book is a major event. And accomplishment. Your local bookstore could be the door opener at the beginning of the process; during; and post when you have book in hand. Do you know what steps to take in engaging a bookseller … what specific questions you should ask … plus what exactly you should be giving one about you and your book?

Start with Pre and During book development including what to do 3 to 6 months prior to publication:

  • Why you should attend store events.
  • Ideas on building your support community.
  • Items you should be doing online.
  • What to include on your website.
  • How to reach out to a distributor.
  • Tips on bold spine design that gets attention.
  • Nurturing your author etiquette.
  • Tips on how to work with the Tattered Cover.

Then when you have a Printed book:

  • Must have elements to include on your Book Sell Sheet.
  • Why blurbs are the next best thing to word-of-mouth buzz.
  • How often to follow up with a bookseller.
  • When to set up a book event.
