Sales and Distribution question #5

by Clare ADMIN

Will self-publishing companies also distribute an author's print books to book shops?

Replies

With a number of distributors, bookshops will have the option of ordering your book. However, it’s important to remember that this is rare. Without the weight of a traditional publisher behind you, bookshops are unlikely to take the risk of ordering in a self-published book which might not sell.
