Book Buyers Preview


As you approach bookstores and retailers to stock your book on their shelves, access to your book’s content is a key to stronger market presence. The Book Buyer’s Preview allows book buyers, librarians and researchers across the globe to read a selection from the first chapter of your book. When book buyers access their ordering database, the preview will appear with your book’s ordering information to aid buyers in making a purchasing decision.

How does the Book Buyer’s Preview help promote your book?

  • A preview of your book will be available on the databases and websites of Ingram Content Group, Baker & Taylor and Barnes & Noble.
  • Once libraries choose to catalog your book, your book’s preview pages will be available to library patrons searching for material.
  • Your book’s preview will also be on EBSCO, the leading service provider of archived print materials and related services for libraries and research organizations.
