How Can I Convince Bookstores To Host A Signing For My New Book?

How Can I Convince Bookstores To Host A Signing For My New Book?
Print Friendly

Hello. I am currently in the process of self publishing and soon I want to have a book signing. I have reached out to a few bookstores in preparation. A few of them suggested I email the owner/manager. My question is what kinds of things should I be sure NOT to leave out when I correspond with them via this first email?

Thank you.

    After successfully selling my new book in three independent book stores, one owner told me that he couldn’t afford to stock my book. I referred him to the wholesale order link at BookLocker. He changed his mind. Randy Evans, author, Red Sky Anthology (available at BookLocker.com) 🙂
