Book Buyers Preview


Access to your book’s content is a key to success if you want bookstores and retailers to stock your book on their shelves. The Book Buyers’ 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 Buyers' 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.
