October Monthly Meeting

Send ’em to the Shelves: Working with a Distributor

with Brent Cunningham, Executive Director of Small Press Distribution

Tuesday, October 13, 6:30pm

Getting your book in front of book buyers and a larger pool of potential readers is a numbers game. Through their sales representatives and wholesaler agreements, distributors give you credibility with book buyers and access to a wide range of sales channels, from small retailers to national chains, and online bookstores.

On or before Tuesday, October 13, register to call in or access our online meeting using the Zoom app on your computer or mobile device or call in from your phone. Connection details below.
