Getting Your Books Into the Library
Join us with Eric Simmons and learn a successful strategy for getting your books into more libraries
Time & Location
Aug 01, 2022, 8:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
About The Event
Join Eric for a Library Marketing Discussion where we will discuss the following points:
- Collection Development Policy – what it is and why it’s important
- Contact List development – i.e., who holds the purse strings
- Marketing your book to Libraries – “sell sheet” (i.e., metadata) development
- Creativity/Timing – Does my book address a current hot topic? Is it the Library’s fiscal year end?
This Author Hangout is sure to be informative.
Eric wrote, and self published his first book in 2017, with no prior background in book writing or
publishing. Since then, he’s self published three other books, and in aggregate, his titles have appeared
on Amazon’s “Best Sellers” list 126 times since January 2019.
Several years ago, with no knowledge of the Library market, he began introducing his titles to Librarians.
Today, 158 Libraries worldwide, including seven of the Nation’s largest, have purchased 195 copies of
his self published books. For over two years, his article, “How To Get Your Book Into Libraries,” ranked
number 1 on Google out of over 2 billion results when searching for getting your book into libraries.
Eric and his wife, Cynthia, reside in metro Atlanta and have three adult children.
