Join San Rafael City Librarian Henry Bankhead and Smashwords marketing director, Jim Azevedo, for a fun, yet intensive two-part webinar series covering the basics of ebook self-publishing (part I) and tips for how you can market your self-published books to public libraries (part II).
Part 2: How to Market Self-Published Ebooks to Libraries
In part two, you’ll learn how public libraries curate, select and purchase ebooks. Delivered in an interview-style format, Henry Bankhead, City Librarian of San Rafael, and Jim Azevedo of Smashwords, will engage in a lively discussion that will address the challenges and opportunities self-published authors face when attempting to sell their ebooks to public libraries. You’ll hear the unique challenges public libraries, and librarians, face when it comes to new title acquisition. You’ll leave armed with the knowledge of how librarians prefer to be contacted and tips for how you can significantly improve the odds your ebook will be purchased by your local library. Henry and Jim will open the floor to audience Q&A following their discussion.
