About this workshop: Want your book in more libraries and bookstores? Not sure HOW books get on their shelves?  Want to know the process AND how YOUR book can get into bookstores and libraries all over the US?  On Saturday, Dec 2, Amy Collins will walk us through the exact details and process authors need to get their books into bookstores and libraries. The process is not hard and you can get onto the shelves of the stores and libraries you have been aiming for…. You just need to know the rules and what they are looking for.  This session will cover:

  • What bookstores and libraries need to work with you.

A complete overview of the retail side of the publishing industry that will help you get into stores and libraries.
