on New Shelves:
Here at New Shelves we make it our business to interact with the writing and publishing communities. We’re members of ALLi, IBPA, Authors Guild, Reedsy and quite a few Facebook groups for writing, publishing and book promotion.
Why? Because it’s important to us that we actively interact with our community. To work with authors on the front lines of publishing, to offer free advice when we are able, to stay on top of industry changes and to learn right alongside of – and from – all of you.
Once in a while, though, we see bad advice given – mostly in Facebook groups where sometimes people’s best intentions override their knowledge of the industry – and it makes us want to holler from the rooftops.
Topping the list of bad advice is “You don’t need a price specific barcode for your book.”
