Skyrocket Your Book Sales Now
Tired of getting the cold shoulder at Borders? Amped up on your fifth cup of coffee while waiting for the manager to “get around to you” at the local Barnes & Noble?
Sick of the look on people’s faces at the very mention of the most dreaded word in the book selling industry: self-published?
Wondering what to do with those ten cases of your self-published book currently threatening to topple over on your king-size bed?
Anybody who’s been published knows that getting a book in print is only half the battle. Once you ink a publishing deal… that’s when the real work begins.
But many writers struggle to sell their books. It can be a tough and daunting job.
Maybe it’s time to try some new alternatives.
Forget Borders. Forget Barnes & Noble.
There are tons of alternative markets that you probably haven’t thought of yet.
For example: Why not try the local florist? Don’t they specialize in those tacky Over the Hill style gift baskets? Why not suggest adding a copy of your latest thriller, Nooses at the Nursing Home, to give their goofy gift basket the extra push it needs to be a real “killer”?
Is the star of your latest children’s book a Scottish Terrier? Who wouldn’t enjoy perusing through your adorable canine capers down at the local Pet Store or veterinarian’s office?
Just published your latest nonfiction opus, Gardening for Goofballs? Why not suggest selling it to the owners of local nurseries or landscapers?
These are just a few of the oft-neglected alternatives to Megabookstores that self-publishers… and first time authors… overlook because they mistakenly assume that stores that sell books are the only stores that sell books!
Not true! And Rusty Fischer’s Grass Roots Book Promotion: Over 300 (Other) Places to Sell Your Self-Published Book is living proof . . .
