As more authors are looking to self-publish their books, they are consistently looking for advice from their local independent bookseller. In the past, self-publishers may have posed more of a nuisance to a busy bookseller. But today, many bookstores are seeing this as an opportunity to turn authors into customers by offering publishing programs as a store service. This not only brings forth new content to readers but adds value to the entire publishing industry. Experts at the intersection of indie bookstores and self-publishing share their tried and true programs to elevate their bookstore relevance. Learn how to:
- Bridge the ‘gap’ in conversations between a bookseller and author
- Find positive solutions for ‘rejecting’ and ‘re-directing’ authors
- Use self-publishing for instore publishing programs
