An Intro to the American Booksellers Association (ABA)

Filed under: American Booksellers Association (ABA),book marketing — gator1965 @ 9:47 pm


In yesterday’s post I introduced and gave links to two of our industry’s trade organizations: The Association of American Publishers (AAP) and the American Library Association (ALA).

Today I am introducing everyone to another of our industry’s trade organizations: The American Booksellers Association (ABA).

The American Booksellers Association is a national, not for profit trade association, and exists to protect and promote the interests of its members: independently owned bookstores, large and small, with storefront locations in towns and cities nationwide…And it’s been around for 110 years!

I feel knowing these organizations, and how and why they operate, will add to your knowledge base of the writing-publishing-selling logistical chain and give you more insight and ideas into marketing your own books. AND where you might market them or seek advice and get inside help and connections! So, periodically, I will be discussing more industry trade organizations.

Go to http://www.bookweb.org/index.html to learn all about the ABA.

Visit all the pages of the ABA site to get a well rounded understanding of this organization…there’s a lot of interesting info…bookmark for future reference.
