I’m thrilled about our new partnership with Small Press Distribution, who will distribute all full-length 421 Atlanta titles. Earth Science by Sarah Green and The Motion by Lucy K Shaw are now available, and Oosh Boosh by Shannon Burns will be available soon, followed by Murder by Jane Liddle and Lay Me Low by Chris Cheney. SPD is already promoting The Motion in their SPD Recommends newsletter!
SPD is a nonprofit devoted to getting indie titles in the hands of readers. I love this interview that Adam Robinson did with Brett Cunningham, the operations director, at Real Pants. When asked if they’d ever deliver books by drone, Brett said, “For us innovation starts by doing some real listening.” Right on.
You can still order 421 Atlanta books directly from this website. I encourage it! But another great thing to do is to ask your local bookstore to stock our titles, which they can do directly through SPD. And don’t stop there! SPD distributes books from about 400 small presses so you may just want to present your indie bookstore with a big list of all your favorites.
Also, SPD will do a “Publishing Boot Camp” session at our AWP event, Submittable presents Camp Real Pants, so be sure to come by to learn more about how to sell books while enjoying a cup of bug juice.
