I’m a Book Store!

Why hello there, you beautiful bookstore!  thanks to you, us book addicts can get our fix!

Here at BookStore BookBlogger Connection our goal is to provide you with additional in-store marketing to help you promote and sell new and old titles by harnessing the power of the book blogging and online book revieweng community.  Scroll through our lists of books and let us know of a few titles you are currently promoting in your store. We’ll provide you with the text of two to four blurbs and the  bloggers who wrote them.

Finished product looks something like this:

What you need to know:

what does this service cost? nothing, nada, zip, ziltch. Call it a labor of love, for bookstores, for book bloggers, for books.

How do I use the book blurbs?  Book blurbs must be used in their entirety (no editing or abridging), and the blog name and url must appear underneath the blurb. If you already have a format for how you like your in-house promotion to look, just reformat the size/font/shape of the text to match. We can also send you a PDF file that will fold into a self standing card as seen in the picture above.

How do I find out what books you have blurbs for? Underneath the contact form below is a growing list of titles that we currently have Shelftalkers for.

What if you don’t have any blurbs for a title I am promoting? Ask anyway, we’ll see what we can do.

What do you do with my information? We will never, ever, share your information with a third party.  We need your e-mail address so we can send you the information you’ve requested. We want to know the name of your bookstore so we can add you to our ever growing list of Participating Bookstores, and if you have a website we’ll link to you. We might give you a shout out on twitter too.
