on Career Authors:
Libraries are the underdogs of the publishing industry. They’re not usually the first place authors dream of seeing their book on the shelves. Some authors even think that marketing to libraries isn’t worth the effort. But I’ve got a secret to share with you… libraries offer huge possibilities for book sales and growing your career as an author.
The American Library Association estimates that there are over one-hundred-sixteen thousand libraries in the U.S. alone. One-hundred-sixteen thousand. If you sold a single copy of your book to just 10% of those libraries, you’d sell over eleven thousand books. And, once your book is displayed on library shelves you will benefit from increased exposure to new readers – readers who might love your book so much they become a loyal fan for life. Loyal readers lead to more successful book launches. Successful book launches lead to strong lifetime sales and sales lead to your next publishing contract.
Getting your book on library shelves is sounding better and better, isn’t it?
Let’s talk about how you can make that happen.
