While over 4 out of 10 bestselling books are now self-published, many libraries still relegate self-published books to a few shelves of local authors. And Indie authors frequently ignore a billion dollar library market that accounts for up to 50% of sales in some genres. It’s time for librarians and self-published authors to come together.
This book covers the issues involved in getting self-published books into libraries from every angle – technology, cataloging issues, platforms, vendor access, librarian bias – and from the perspectives of BOTH self-published authors and librarians. Heavily researched (and backed up with 22 pages of citations), this book also reflects the author’s personal experience as a self-published author and her six years’ experience in library acquisitions and collection development.
