Indie writers & booksellers: partners in promotion presented by Donna Pazz Kaufman. Too often, marketing is an after thought, only prompted when the boxes of books sit in the garage waiting for readers. In this session, we'll discuss what retailers will need to be printed on your book cover, the terms bookstores will require, how to manage consignment sales, strategies for getting your book prominent display space, and how to approach a bookstore for events and activities.
This meeting is sponsored by the FWA/ACC and the Friends of the Main Library St. Augustine. All book sales benefit the Friends of the Library. Doors open at 10:00 am. All meetings are free and open to the public.
