One of the hoops indie authors have to jump is getting their book into a brick-and-mortar bookstore. It’s hard to tap into the market through large chain bookstores when they are biased against indie authors and unwilling to accept your product.
But The Reading Glass Books believes that each book is an experience. We want to make your story a part of everyone’s reading journey.
But despite our passion and dedication to provide you a platform to showcase your book and deliver it into the right hands, the truth is we cannot decide on everyone’s reading list. We cannot force anyone to read a particular book without a promise that it’s going to be worth their while.
What we can guarantee you, however, is the one-in-a-million chance of displaying and selling your book in a brick-and-mortar bookstore.

COMBINING THE POWER OF CONTENT MARKETING AND VALIDITY OF STATISTICS
Let’s ramp up your book consignment program with powerful content and statistics that don’t lie.
Content is power.
Words that have the ability to persuade increase your conversion rates. That’s because language can change how people behave. Your words can either seduce people or discourage them. Your content can either make or break your literary career. You can, of course, market and create your own work. However, it could take your time away from all your other priorities.
You can leave the marketing and promotion to us. The Reading Glass Books is a home to expert content marketers who can motivate casual readers to click, share, download, sign up, fill out, keep reading, and best of all: BUY. We will work with you in creating your own identity that’s so compelling, it would snag anyone’s attention.
If you avail of our Bookstore Consignment Program, your book will also be promoted through the following platforms:
- Social Media
Statistics don’t lie.
We know it’s already satisfying to spot your book being stocked in a physical bookstore. But we also understand the relief of knowing the fruits of your marketing efforts. So, we have strategically chosen these platforms because they reach a wide variety of audiences and their progress and results are easy to track and measure.
By the end of your book consignment program, you shall also receive a detailed report of your supplementary marketing campaigns.
Independent bookstores support independent publishers.
Online retailers like Amazon continue to dominate the bookselling business. It’s a challenge for indie booksellers to compete with the retail giant, especially with its shipping speed and low prices. It’s like a fight between David and Goliath. And with the continuing rise of Amazon and other online delivery giants, it’s often lost to us why we still need to support the thriving industry of indie booksellers.
However, according to Julie Rosenberg of Writer’s Digest, “Independent bookstores directly serve the community and the individual. Their contributions are invaluable—and in ways that aren’t being replicated online.”
