March 18th: Bookstore Owners Panel Discussion
No matter what kind of writing you do, you want to be in bookstores. But how do the buyers for those book stores decide what to carry? There are 100,000 new books published every year, that's an enormous amount of competition for a limited amount of shelf space. Did you know that stores like Barnes and Noble charge a fee to be featured on a table, or even to have your book facing out on the shelf? How do you get into the local authors shelf? What sorts of things are book buyers looking for? These questions and more will be addressed at our monthly meeting on March 18th at Preservation Park.
