AuthorYOU First Saturday program … Working with Bookstores
Jun 5 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 pm

Working with Bookstores 

 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.
  • Building your social platforms.

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.
