Interesting news from book business and Thad Mcilroy. I also know a print book author that got her book in a local (Wisconsin) B & N store, I think primarily because of a supportive store manager. She had to show the manager her book promotion plan and she let her do a reading and stock her book – Tween/YA fantasy fiction. For others, it might not be as easy going (per the article). Slowly, slowly, they are learning that self-published authors are an asset.
In its latest effort to reclaim lost territory from Amazon, Barnes & Noble will sell self-published books, in print, in its stores.
