Indie Bound

For the A to Z Challenge, I’m posting promo and other tips for writers. Today it’s Indie Bound.

Indie Bound is an organization if independent bookstores across America. They have a WEBSITE and a monthly newsletter.

Why do authors and publisher need to know about Indie Bound? Because independent bookstores send in their favorite selections each month and the popular ones are featured in the newsletter. If enough stores recommend your book, a feature in the newsletter will garner even more interest - and orders!

So, don’t forget your local independent bookstore!
