Getting Your Self-Published Book Onto Bookstore Shelves




If you’re like most authors, you want your book to connect with as many readers as possible. You may have built an online following or are already selling on an established platform (Amazon, B&N, etc). But, if you’re like most authors, getting your book into bookstores has proven difficult. DartFrog allows self-published authors to finally clear this hurdle and get their books into stores.



Learn about the options you have available to you to get your book onto bookstore shelves. In this session I will cover:

What is the most efficient strategy for getting your book into bookstores across the country?

How can the Direct To Shelf Program lead to increased print book sales and more readers?

What marketing opportunities are available?

How much will it cost to have my books placed in bookstores?

We’ll answer all these questions and more!
