Title Pitch Publishing


Despite the rising popularity of online bookstores, the appeal of having books stocked in local brick-and-mortar bookshelves is still strong among many writers. But actually getting books, especially self-published ones, into physical stores is another story.

If you count yourself among these aspiring authors but the prospect of publishing your book and getting a test copy into local bookstores/book retailers or libraries is what’s stopping you from making the transition from writer to author, then this package is the perfect fit.

See your book in print and give it the best chance of being picked up by bookstores/book retailers or libraries with our focused 90-day sales programs to the top stores across the country. You are even guaranteed a minimum of two bookstores/book retailers or libraries stocking a copy of the book throughout the pitch campaign.
