I am looking for any information on how to get into bookstores. It appears they may have something against the self published and the POD. I have tried everything that I know. Any good suggestions?
You might find a local distributor who deals with indie presses. I own a new micro-press in BC, Canada and only just now (after two years and 5 print titles) am starting to submit books to distributors for review. It is true that many of them will not even look at you if you're self-publishing. But I honestly think that will change in the future.
Yes Duende Sands I believe you are correct. I think the world will be changing especially because of e-books, they just make the world a lot easier for a lot of people. It is sad that the world may be denied some great authors because they are self-published. Someone has to be the pioneer, right? Good luck to you and thanks for your input.
