Want to sell books? They pay 8x more than Amazon (3966 hits)

Are you actively promoting your books (and ebooks) to libraries?

If not, you're missing a prime opportunity.

Libraries are the biggest untapped source of ongoing revenue for authors (both unknown and established).

In fact, did you know you can make up to EIGHT TIMES as much per title selling to libraries compared with what you get from Amazon?

Many authors wrongly assume libraries are "Old School" and few people visit them nowadays. But the exact opposite is true…

Almost 40% of Americans have been to a library in the last month.

But only 5% have been to a bookstore.

As bookstores go out of business, libraries keep growing. Today there are far more libraries than bookstores in the U.S.

And library budgets are going up.

Budgets for many libraries are over $800,000 per year. And in cities serving populations over 500,000, library budgets average $4,437,000 annually.

So year after year, libraries get millions of dollars of fresh cash to buy more books.

But that's just the tip of the iceberg of why libraries are a hidden source of revenue for authors.

To discover how to get started selling to libraries, join Steve Harrison this coming Thursday (December 8th) for a free webinar on how to sell thousands of books (or ebooks) to libraries.

The #1 category of non-fiction libraries buy (you'll never guess what this is… but if you're writing a title in this category, you'll have an easy path to selling it to libraries).

How and what to write in an email to a librarian that will catch their attention (and it will make you look like a pro and it only takes a few minutes).
