What kind of book stores will allow book signings of self published books?

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Question by : What kind of book stores will allow book signings of self published books?
I don’t know of any book stores that will permit book signings of self published books. I’m assuming borders and barnes and noble won’t because they only want to sell traditionally published books. So if I want to arrange a book signing, whom should I arrange it with? My book is an urban fantasy (it’s a real world and no mythical creatures. The only fantasy element is magic). I need good answers please.

Answer by cathrl69
You could try a local independent? You’re right, none of the big chains will touch self-published books. They’ve simply seen so many really bad ones.

To be honest, though, who are you expecting to come? Most self-published books sell zero copies to anyone who the author doesn’t know personally. You don’t need a book signing to sign copies for your family and friends.

Book stores?

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Question by Annoynomous A1: Book stores?
The book is called “Encyclopedia of immaturity” This book teaches me how to be immature and never grow up. It’s also full of prank ideas. Just in time for my school prank. I found Walmat was the cheapest with the price $ 14.68 including standard shipping. They don’t have this book in stock in the store. Where else can I go to buy this in the store or online for a cheaper price? If it’s in the store I won’t mind paying a dollar or just a little more than that extra.
