Solving the Self-Publishing Puzzle - American Libraries Magazine

Panzer was out in the Catosphere today looking for sales and marketing information for his books. Our big busy kitty found a post at the American Libraries Magazine site about getting your books into libraries.

Let's go to the library, Mom.
According to the post by Greg Landgraf, as self-published books gain in popularity, libraries are beginning to take notice. Some libraries are actually setting up venues for the self-published to sell their physical books to the public. Even more interesting is the fact some libraries are even making agreements with ebook distributors such as Smashwords. Representatives from three libraries, two in the U.S. and one in Canada, explain their criteria and selection process in interviews in this post.

Panzer says, "Hmmm ... Getting in a library would be a good tactic. The more people know your name and your work, the more they'll look for your other books."

Note: This is a h-u-g-e post, so bring a h-u-g-e cup of tea and g-i-a-n-t muffin.
