How to Approach Libraries with Your Book

A talk by Amy Collins
President, New Shelves

Speaker expertise

Collins is a trusted expert, speaker, and recommended sales consultant for some of the largest book and library retailers and wholesalers in the publishing industry.

With almost 10,000 libraries in the U.S. alone, there are three times as many public libraries than there are bookstores. And that's not counting school or university libraries! The opportunity to get your book into the hands of many new readers is phenomenal. And those readers often leave reviews, tell their friends about what they're reading, and purchase books as gifts. But you have to understand what libraries are looking for and make your book relevant to their needs.
