Getting Your Book into the Library 8-21-14

Libraries are a great place to sell your book to ... as well as create events around you and your book. Today, Judith has Kari May, the President of the Elbert County Library District AND Presdient of the Colorado Association of Libraries. She has no aspirations to be an author – after all, all authors need an audience of readers, and reading is something she is good at.

Thehy will explore:


·        Libraries provide a “test place” for readers to discover new authors

·        Evaluation process for selecting materials

·        Digital Commerce – how the eBook format has changed the games for librarians as well as for authors

·        Libraries want to help authors succeed

·        Perception by publishers that libraries are a threat to sales, particularly in the digital arena


·        the library as publisher

Lots to talk about ... tune in for another great show on Author U - Your Guide to Book Publishing with Dr. Judith Briles, The Book Shepherd.
