Books & Such Literary Agency Launches Library Insider!
I subscribe to a great blog, which is run by Books & Such Literary Agency. They launched this exciting new product today that I signed up for. It's called Library Insider. I'm not going to give you all the details, as I feel their website at http://libraryinsider.com/ will explain it much better and more accurately than I can, but why I decided to subscribe is because I felt my fears of dealing with libraries were leading me to miss out on a great opportunity for Little Shepherd.
As they explained today at their blog, there are two parts to Library Insider:
"1) Library Locator, which enables you to connect with 2,500 acquisitions librarians in public libraries and library systems around the country;
2) Behind the Stacks, which is individual training offered by librarian and library market expert Judy Gann."
I subscribed to the former. What this did was provide me with a database of contact information for the states I selected. I chose my home state and one other I felt would be a good fit for the book. I've already downloaded the information into an Excel spreadsheet, which will allow me to make quick work of mailings.
I'm excited about Library Insider and I wanted to share it with you so that you can decide if you're interested. Books & Such doesn't know I am talking about it at my blog. I hope you'll check out their website and let me know what you think.
