We are so excited to share this amazing announcement with all of you! We have always had a goal of getting titles into the library system. All of us love libraries and see them as a place that inspired many of us to become avid readers and writers. The library is an important community space that provides a deep connection to materials that are costly to acquire and provide a great resource for those who need to access technical information as well as fiction and non fiction.
Part of our expansion was completed early this year when we onboarded with Ingram. Ingram is the largest distribution network in the world. Most books on shelves, come from Ingram stock. Shelf placement is very dependent on readers requesting stock of items at local stores and the retail outlet themselves. For indies like us, its a harder process but not impossible.
Many of our authors have been submitted for shelf stock and are on shelves of local spiritual and occult shops as well as indie bookstores, thanks to the efforts of the local authors who act as our personal ambassadors and also the greater community who keeps our titles in high demand.
Fast forward to finding a way to get our titles into libraries, we approached Libby. If you have never heard of Libby, that’s ok, let us introduce you!
Libby acts as a central library card. All the books on the app are accessible via the library card you already have. Once you sign in, you can access millions of ebooks, audiobooks and even movies!
