Call for PNBA Northwest New Title Preview

Dear Publishers, Publicists and Authors:

It's time for the Summer/Fall edition of PNBA's Northwest New Title Preview. If you have a title you think will be a hit with Northwest booksellers, this is a great, inexpensive way to give it more oomph.

Here's what Bloomsbury publicist Sabrina Farber has to say about the program: "I LOVE THIS PROMOTION! I think it's the smartest ABA kind of marketing tool to come around in a long, long time . . . I can't stress how effective I think this has been. I got tons of emails from stores about my titles (some stores I'd never heard of, too). Thanks for being creative w/publisher marketing dollars."

How it works: Northwest New Title Preview helps you target your distribution of free review copies of forthcoming books, ARCs, or galleys directly to bookstore buyers in the Northwest. For $120, PNBA will include your book in an online listing of new and regional titles with jacket art, a blurb, and a linked email address of the contact person at your company for bookseller requests. We send booksellers the listings, and they e-mail you to request the books.

Take a look! Last January's Northwest New Title Preview is available at:

The deadline for materials is May 4, 2007. The titles will become active on the site on May 18, 2007. An order form is attached as a pdf. I hope to hear from you soon!
