Emily Hall – St. Louis Writer’s Guild

April 2, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Writers guild


For many writers, nothing compares to seeing their book on the shelves of local bookstores, but getting it there isn’t always easy. Bookseller Emily Hall of Main Street Books will offer some guidance in her April 2 talk on “Wherever Books are Sold: A Guide to Forming a Lasting Partnership with Independent Bookstores.”

Emily will discuss:

  • how bookstores select books to stock,
  • what research independently published authors should do before they visit any bookstore,
  • how to approach the owner/manager of the store in a respectful and conscientious way,
  • how to promote your book once it makes it into said bookstores, and
  • how to schedule and promote a signing with an independent bookstore.
