A few members of Spencer Hill Press and Spence City attended Wednesday and Thursday of NEIBA this week. It was quite fun to meet booksellers in person and hear their thoughts and opinions on the book industry and on bookseller/publisher relations.
Here’s a picture from the event:
Here is a picture from Providence’s historic Biltmore hotel:
Among other things we talked about during the NEIBA conference was that booksellers and bloggers would like to have more open dialogue with publishers, since all of us love books. No matter if we’re a reader, blogger, seller, publicist, author, publisher or distributor, we should work together to promote literacy, imagination, great ideas, dreams and the future of our world.
I’d love to hear from you. Ask box us some more information about you, or your opinions on the relationship needs between the publisher and YOU. Are any of you booksellers? Are any of you bloggers? Does your bookstore want to get more ARCs, more bookmarks, more SWAG?
