IPNE offers discount for ALA exhibit

Dear Book Publishers Northwest:
The Independent Publishers of New England (IPNE) will be exhibiting at the ALA Midwinter Conference Jan 15-18, 2010 in Boston, MA (American Library Association).

Won’t you join us?  Your members will receive the member rate of $50 per book.  We’ll exhibit their book for them and include it in our catalog. The catalog is distributed at the show and posted on our website.

Librarians are the perfect market for independent authors and publishers, because they look for uncommon books to meet their patrons’ needs. Consequently, they often favor small presses and independent publishers.

Your members can exhibit their books with IPNE at the conference and get our IPNE “member rate” of $50 per book (a $20 savings, the non-member rate is $70). For $50 they’ll display one book and get a listing in our IPNE catalog distributed at the show and on our website.

If they’re interested they must sign up by 12/18/09 to get into the catalog. (After that date they can still exhibit but won’t be in the catalog.)

To exhibit books with IPNE and get the IPNE member rate visit http://www.ipne.org/Events and click on the Register button, enter your email address, then select the  “Friends of IPNE” option – entering code HX66SOC9 .

To exhibit more than one book, please choose the Manual Payment option and mail a check for $50 per book to IPNE, PO Box 303, Londonderry, NH 03053. ***Please write “Code HX66SOC9” on the check ***

Please pass the word to your members!
