Angela Bole – Demystifying Book Distribution

Learn what book distribution really means!

Distribution is sometimes one of the biggest stress points for independent publishers, whether they’re publishing just their own work or the work of dozens of authors, but it doesn’t have to be. If you take your time, do your research, and understand the different models available for you and your books, you can learn what book distribution really means and whether it’s right for you.

With over 15 years of book publishing experience, IBPA CEO Angela Bole will explain:

  • What distribution means…and doesn’t mean.
  • The difference between the available distribution options.
  • How the print option you choose (POD or offset) affects your distribution options.
  • What to consider related to pricing, discounts, and returns.
  • And more!…
