It’s not too early to start thinking about 2014 promotions, according the marketing team of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association.

They are currently collecting information for PNBA’s Northwest New Title Preview. For $150, PNBA will include a book in an online listing sent out to their members. They feature new and regional titles and ask that the publishers provide jacket art, a blurb, and a linked email address of the contact person at their company for bookseller requests

The Northwest New Title Preview is designed to helps small publishers target the distribution of free review copies of forthcoming books, ARCs, or galleys directly to bookstore buyers in the Northwest. You can see a past New Titles Preview here.

PNBA’s deadline for materials is January 10, 2014, and titles will become active on the site on January 20. For more information about this and other PNBA promotions for small and independent publishers, contact Brian Juenemann, Marketing Director, brian@pnba.org.

PNBA is a trade association for independent bookstores operating in the Pacific Northwest. They hold one tradeshow each fall. In 2014, this will be in Tacoma.
