Remember when independent bookstores wouldn’t touch indie print books because they couldn’t get good discounts? That’s changing. Now.
I read this over on Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s blog here: http://kriswrites.com/2013/05/15/the-business-rusch-shifting-sands/
So now it seems that independent bookstores AND large chain bookstores like Barnes and Noble can find your indie book published by Createspace if it’s in the Extended Distribution and if you purchased the $10 ISBN to list your own publishing company. And your books show up mixed in with traditionally published books in Ingram’s and Baker and Taylor catalogs. And they can purchase a single copy, and still get a decent discount.
Big things are happening. Read the whole blog post!
