Along with libraries and coffee shops, bookstores are a haven for authors. And it’s part of the author dream to see your book on the shelf in your local bookstore.
Bookstores offer more than a place to browse for books. They provide readers and writers a place to encounter each other. Bookstores are a community hub in ways an online retailer can never be.
Bookstores are a supplement and a marketing angle you should actively pursue, and as your author brand develops, you’ll get more and more value from bookstore exposure.
With physical bookstore marketing, cover matters! Books with professionally designed, engaging covers are much more likely to be noticed in a bookstore environment. Sometimes a book is not accepted just because it needs a new cover.
In that case, our cover design team can build you a bookstore quality cover that is guaranteed to pass any type of evaluation.
