As you contact bookstores/libraries, please note them here and let us know what you sent or brought so we don't duplicate efforts.

Today I spoke with the gentleman who owns seven Hallmark card stores with nice bookstores in them. His seven stores are in a fifty mile radius here in Western Ohio.

He will put one Anthology book in each store. (7).

He by the way allowed me my first signing of my PA book. Nice guy.

He didn't have any worry about selling them when I told him that Scott Card was in the book. He will put them on the best selling rack for us. He said he would replace them as they sell, and may give one to each manager for a Christmas gift since it was for a good cause. I will be pushing the anthology at my local store) Hallmark,as a contributor as soon as they arrive. It will (coenside)- is that spelled right?-with a sale and the story that will run in my newspaper. I assume on a Saturday. The ladies know how The Hallmark store can draw customers at holiday time.

Remember, use all the star power of this anthology when speaking with bookstores.

Two copies will be stocked at The Little Professor bookstore in an ajoining town. If the book moves for them, they will order more. They will put the books up at the sales counter in a nice wire stand.

Edit: I'll contact Toni Whitney, the librarian we sent books to, and have her contact all the Huron libraries too!

I'll be out and about tomorrow, I'll stop by the local indie bookstore. I have to go there anyway to set up a signing for my own book. And sometime soon I also have to hit the B&N (Deptford, NJ)to set up my launch... so I'll talk to them about that too.

Don't know how B&N will take to stocking a POD book (even for a good cause) but maybe I can leave them some flyers when they're finished.

And as soon as someone has that press release done, I'll send it to the Gloucester County Times, Courier Post and Philadelphia Inquirer.

I haven't yet, but will be contacting:

The Banff Book & Art Den (http://www.banffbooks.com/)
Cafe Books (http://www.cafebooks.ca/index.aspx) (Canmore)
The Second Story (http://www.canrockbooks.com/) (Canmore)
Banff Public Library (http://www.banfflibrary.ab.ca/)
Canmore Public Library (http://www.canmorelibrary.ab.ca/)

...and any store that carries magazines, etc. Grocery stores, smoke shops, so on.

In the media thread, I called on all Canadians about contacting national media. Same thing here re the national bookstores:

Chapters/Indigo (http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/Default.asp)
Indigo Books & Music Inc.,
468 King Street West, Suite 500
Toronto, ON M5V 1L8
Anyone in the area want to put them on their list?


Jenna, how can independent bookstores and libraries like the above acquire the book? I'd like to go in armed with information on how they can get it. -- question answered in another thread. Ingram will have it.

If it's not going to be out until November now, it times with the release of my own book. So when I'm out and about getting signings, I can promote both at once! One for the kids, one for the adults :)

I hope you can get it out before then, though.

I don't think any of the other authors lives in my area, so I'll get all I can in South Jersey, Philly market.

I live in SE Ohio (Marietta area), and I've got a question. I live about an hour's drive from Zanesville and Dresden (home of the Longaberger basket). Do you think that Zanesville would be better covered by the folks in Columbus, or should I attempt something there, time permitting?

I'm also right across the Ohio River from Parkersburg, WV. I plan to see what I can do there. For WV, it's actually quite a large town. It's no Columbus or Cleveland, though!

Holy Schmoly, I never realized there were so many bookstores near me. I'm doing a distance search on MSN yellow pages; within 25 miles of my home there are 15 bookstores. That isn't counting the ones that obviously wouldn't be appropriate to contact. This might be harder than I thought...

I'm making up a flyer to leave at the bookstores I do get to, in case I don't get to talk to the person I need to and to be sure they don't forget me. Would it be all right for me to include the first paragraph of your intro, Jenna? (Once I get the flyer done, I'll post it in the e-mails thread.)

ChunkyC
09-25-2005, 06:26 PM
KimJo -- the company I work for is producing flyers and posters as we speak that folks will be able to download (PDF format) and print out. They'll be coordinated with the cover art, and feature an image of the cover of the book as well. There'll be an area at the bottom where folks can write in local info, such as the date and time of a signing featuring one of the anthology authors, etc.

The second proof of the book cover art should be in to Jenna today, so we anticipate being able to get the posters and flyers ready within a day or so once she gives her final approval of the cover.

So hang in for a bit and you'll be able to distribute the 'official' flyer/poster.

Charlie,

Seeing I'm a fellow Canadian on the other side of the country, I'm going to direct these questions to you. First of all, I'm going to be honest and say that I'm completely inexperienced in this area of promotion, etc. But, in having said that, I would love to help in some way from my area. St. John's, NL, has a small population of 200,000 but we have Chapters as one major bookstore as well as some independents (as well as Hallmark stores, libraries, etc.). And there are the local newspapers, etc. (In fact, there was as article done in a smaller paper here just a couple years ago on my greeting card publications with Blue Mountain Arts). What do you think of my approaching these venues? Would I give them a copy of the press release and posters, with the mention of my contribution to the anthology? I don't mind doing this - I just want to be able to approach it properly in the best interest of the project. Also, do I contact the local Canadian Red Cross in my area about this? Sorry about all the questions. I'd just like to do something to help with promotion of the project. What do you think? Thanks Charlie.

Debbie :)

Hi Cabria!

Chapters as one major bookstore as well as some independents (as well as Hallmark stores, libraries, etc.). And there are the local newspapers, etc. (In fact, there was as article done in a smaller paper here just a couple years ago on my greeting card publications with Blue Mountain Arts). What do you think of my approaching these venues? Would I give them a copy of the press release and posters, with the mention of my contribution to the anthology?
I would say a great big yes to the above. See the Press Release thread for the official release Jenna's working on. I've copied it into a wordprocessor document and added my local info where indicated, you should do the same and have it ready for when Jenna says it's okay to start sending it out. Keep checking that thread in case she makes any final changes to the wording.

While you wait, make a list of newspapers, TV and radio stations you want to send it to, along with their preferred method of contact for such things (fax or e-mail) With that in hand, the minute Jenna says GO, you can send them out.

As for the flyers and posters, by all means, once they are ready, you can download them and have them printed and distribute them to anyone willing to put them up. I'd say anyone who sells books of any kind would be a candidate. Most copy shops should be able to do a nice job printing the posters and/or flyers for you. See what kind of deal they'll be willing to give you, or even if they's donate the copies to the cause. This is the kind of thing you could write neatly at the bottom of the area for local info on the poster or flyer: "printing of posters donated by blablaprinters" or some such.

See if your local Chapters would be willing to bring in the book. Offer to drop by to sign any copies they stock, if you can. Then put up posters and add the date & time when you'll be there.

Also, do I contact the local Canadian Red Cross in my area about this?
I'm really not sure about this since all the proceeds are being generated in the US and the donations being made from there. Mind you, wouldn't hurt to tell them what we're up to. Even though none of the actual funds will be passing through the Canadian chapter, maybe they'd help us by posting the link to storiesofstrength.com on the Canadian Red Cross site, you never know.

Also, see the media contact thread. I've asked Canadians in the anthology to contact me about my pitching our book to CanadaAM. Would you be willing to go on the show if they decided they wanted to interview some of us on air?

Cabria
09-25-2005, 08:25 PM
Hey Charlie!

Thanks for replying so quickly! And thanks for all of that info. I'm going to check out those threads now and process all of this. It's very exciting and I'll do my best to help out where I can. And yes to the Canada A.M. thing - cool.

My friends in verious places are chomping at the bit to get their hands on this book. One of them had a suggestion--she wants us to have friends/relatives go to the bookstores right after the book is made available (or even just before) and ask for it, and ask when are they going to be getting it stocked?

I'd think this might be a good idea! But I don't know if it would really work until after SOS is listed in Ingram.

I'm a bit inexperienced at promoting as well, so I apologize if my questions seem off the wall here. Is everyone pretty much just contacting local bookstores and newspapers? What exactly do you do...speak with someone at the bookstores or just leave a flyer? If they want to stock the book, how would they go about doing that?Thanks!

My friends in verious places are chomping at the bit to get their hands on this book.

Same here. Looks like I have about 100 "sold" so far. So your idea of people going to a bookstore and asking for the book sounds appealing.

But I'm really new to all this.

Do we have any idea as to what price range this book will be? And if sold at a bookstore, is it much more? (I want to buy at least 25 myself for gifts....do I order direct through Lulu or through a book store so that they can realize the potential this book has.)

No, there is no price as yet, no official press release and or flyer, as the cover art is not quite ready. Hang in there folks, it won't be long and the push can start. I'm sure Jenna wants to use official, approved, Stories of Stregth flyers and press releases.

Watch for any posts by Jenna, she'll give us the low-down when it happens.

Ken

JennaGlatzer
10-02-2005, 03:34 AM
But we are getting close. :) Don't hold me to it, but I think the price will be $15.95 (I was aiming for $14.95, but our page count went up, so the base price of printing went up). In terms of actual dollars, it's best to have people order straight through Lulu-- that's how we get the best royalty rate. In terms of publicity/distribution, it's best to order through a bookstore, so it's a bit of a toss-up. I'd still lean toward asking people to order through Lulu when possible, though, because that's the guaranteed way to get more dollars flowing in to the relief fund.

I can't finalize the release until the manuscript is actually uploaded to Lulu. I can't get ordering details before that point (an ordering link, ISBN, etc.). So that's at least a week away; Lisa is currently copyediting it, then it gets proofread and formatted.

I have a mock-up of the front cover and it looks great. Final version in a day or two.

Jean Marie
10-02-2005, 03:51 AM
If ordering through Lulu is best, should I still go ahead with contacting bookstores in CT? Borders in Fairfield wants to make an enormous deal out of it and would like as many authors as possible to come for a talk and signing. For those who don't know, they're located about an hour outside of NYC. And, yes Jenna, they want you there to talk about it!!

JennaGlatzer
10-04-2005, 07:24 AM
Oh, by all means, keep contacting bookstores! I just mean for our own friends and family, it's probably best to ask them to order straight from Lulu because we can explain to them that that's how we get the most money for the relief effort. But the more bookstores that stock it, the merrier. Every sale makes a difference.

P.S. I can't do any traveling anytime soon. :( I'm totally swamped through the end of the year. CT is about 3 hours from me 'cause I'm in the middle of Long Island.

Ken, if they order direct from Lulu and want the resale discount, they need to do up a purchase order and fax it. Here's the info from their website:



Can I place a purchase order?
Lulu accepts purchase orders by reputable book stores and other corporate entities as approved on a case by case basis.

All purchase orders must include

Purchase order (PO) number
Complete bill-to and ship-to addresses with phone and fax numbers
Federal EIN
Complete description of the item(s) being ordered
Purchase orders can be faxed to 919-459-5867, Attn: Accounting. Our terms are generally Due Upon Receipt, but Lulu reserves the right to require pre-payment and will contact you should your purchase order be declined.

Yup. *gentle nudge* SoS is in the INGRAM database, as of last week, I can't remember what day exactly Jenna made the announcement. You can even find SoS on Barnes & Noble dot com now, according to one of our observant members.

We still have to get the bibliographic info entered properly so that it will show up when searching Jenna's name, etc., but with the book title and ISBN, any store that can order from INGRAM can now bring it in.

I haven't been having a huge amount of luck with most of the stores I've contacted; except for Borders, they've said they'll order but I haven't heard back from any of them. However, Cabin Books, which I mentioned a few posts ago, followed through: they ordered 8 copies, four of which will be sold in the store and four in the cafe that's owned by the same person! Not a huge number, and I'm planning on hitting a few more stores this coming week, but it's something.

I went to my local pharmacy, and not only did they stock the books, they printed out a poster and wrote on it, "100% of proceeds to charity! Local Author!"

I have a few friends who are going to go in and get a few from them, just to support the pharmacy. (I think the pharmacy also ordered them at full price, so even they aren't making a profit on it.)

I've got an author appearance tomorrow at Pic-A-Book, a local bookstore that's been around since Eve made apple pie. I'll have to share a two hour slot with a couple of other local authors, but I'll get to do a presentation and give out bookmarks and such. Anything new I should know?

Nothing specific right now, Amy. Just that the book is available everywhere now, and that we're very pleased with the way it's being received around the world.

Oh, I went through and read all the bio's because I was curious to see where we all were from. I didn't tally numbers, but it looks like we have contributors from:

USA
Canada
United Kingdom
Germany
Greece
South Africa
Australia

Quite the group, eh? Mentioning this might help show folks what a fabulous international coming-together this project is.

Good luck with your appearance!

I'll have them check again tomorrow, but as of today, they still can not pull it from Ingram's database.

Thanks, Chunky, I'll mention that. It gives me the warm fuzzy chills to be included in such a group.

Strange, Chris, because you can find it on Waldenbooks.com and my local Waldenbooks was able to find it on their system.

Dec 3rd, they still can't find it in their system. I had them call the number you gave me, and even with another store helping them, they still couldn't do it. I think unfortunately, I'm just going to have to move on.

My small town bookstore "McDonald's Bookstore" bought two copies and one of our libraries bought a copy!

The sales were a result of a pitch I put together with poster etc. I got here on the forum. I am so proud!
The library wants a reading this summer. Yay!
Now to go after the other library...
