How can a self-published writer get into a bookstore or library? It takes a lot of effort, as this week's Publishers Weekly describes. You have to take books in hand, plus a sell sheet, and visit the buyer at the bookstore, or the librarian in charge of collections. You'll have a better chance of getting in if you integrate yourself in the local book community, by teaching writing at the local library for example.
