 Marketing Your Book to libraries in the digital age 

Bonnye Matthews

Tuesday, September 19, 7:00 pm

Bear Gallery in Pioneer Park

Looking for a way to sell your books? Ever try selling books to libraries? Bonnye Matthews did and hit the wall of silence. After five years, she’s found a way to increase royalties three to four times normal by using her no-cost platform plank found in her new book, How to Market to Libraries and Readers in the Digital Age: Constructing Major Email Platform Planks. It’s hard work, but if you have written or plan to write multiple books, you can set up a system to market your books to libraries across the entire US. Bonnye will also share her new book, People in the Americas before the Last Ice Age Glaciation Concluded: An Emerging Western Hemisphere Population Origins Paradigm.

This month we are fortunate to have two Southcentral authors at our September presentation: Bonnye Matthews and Rebecca Goodrich

The primary focus is on Bonnye's experience selling her books to libraries. Rebecca Goodrich will tell us a little about her memoir.

Bonnye Matthews- Award winning author of the Winds of Change novel series on the peopling of the Americas and the Archaeological Sites novella series that ties stories to pre-ice age sites in the Americas.

Rebecca Goodrich- Award winning author of numerous poems and a Memoir, Emergency Rations: How One Young Tail Gunner Survived World War Two.

In 1994, Rebecca Goodrich jettisoned the glitter of California to build a houseboat in Dutch Harbor. Now she's writing her island memoir. Hear a preview of her coming to Alaska story at Alaska Writers Guild meeting September 19.
