Bookstore Placement is Back!

Drumroll, please! We're happy to announce that our bookstore placement program is back up and running after a hiatus for much of this year. Due to the impact of the pandemic on so many stores, and in an effort to keep the program as effective and affordable as possible, we've reduced our placement to 25 stores across the country who have managed to stay open and thriving during these difficult times. We will be sending five titles per quarter to these stores for our usual three-month, face-front display.
As you know, our standards for selection are incredibly high, and we're excited to share with you the five exceptional books we've chosen for placement this month:
The Fourteenth of September by Rita Dragonette, a Coming of Conscience Novel set during the Vietnam War.
The Last Surviving Dinosaur: The TyrantoCrankaTsuris by Steven Joseph, a playful picture book that reminds us to balance our woes with more positive things.
Snapshots by Eliot Parker, a moving collection of short stories offering a glimpse into the human heart.
When It's Over by Barbara Ridley, a coming of age historical fiction novel set in 1930s Prague.
Skinny House: A Memoir of Family by Julie Seely, which chronicles the legacy of the author's grandfather, who constructed the now-historic Skinny House of Mamaroneck, NY after participating in the Great Migration.
In other news, I'm excited to announce that we have launched a new marketing service which leverages a network of 160 popular bookstagrammers and counting. These bookstagrammers are avid readers who blog about books on Instagram, and they currently have a total combined audience of over one million book-loving followers between them! You can check out the Bookstagram page on our website to learn more about how it works.
That's all for now! As always, we welcome author submissions for our blog, whether it's a personal essay, a behind-the-scenes look at writing, a take on current events or a helpful how-to. If you're interested in contributing, drop me a line.
