The Ins-and-Outs of Book Distribution

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Book distribution models range from DIY to full-service. How do you get a distributor? How do you know which distributor is best for you or when it’s time to make a change? This expert panel will offer lively discussion and plenty of time for q and a. It looks at all the possibilities for distribution and examines their risks and benefits. Managing expectations is key to a successful relationship with your distributor, and to do that you need to know what services a distributor does and doesn’t provide, what are the costs and chargebacks, and how to keep the lines of communication open.
