Indie to Indie: Marketing and Selling Indie Published Books to Independent Bookstores
Heather Duncan, Executive Director of the Mountains and Plains Independent Booksellers Association and Arsen Kashkashian, Lead Buyer and General Manager of the Boulder Book Store, will share how independent publishers can best pique the interest of independent bookstores, create events around their books and successfully drive potential buyers to stores to ask for and buy their books. They will also impart words of wisdom on how to work most effectively with the store owners and staff as well as inform attendees on what indie bookstores look for when they’re considering carrying/buying an indie-published book. They’ll also share some indie-published book success stories and provide examples that sold well and why.
