What We Learned at the Press Kit Webinar!

Posted By Linda-Marie Barrett, Wednesday, April 25, 2018
Updated: Tuesday, April 24, 2018

SIBA booksellers who attended Maribeth Pelly’s webinar “How to Prepare a Press Kit for your Store” are now working on creating or retooling their store press kits in advance of trips to Book Expo. Pelly, the event planner for Booktowne (NJ) and a professional marketing consultant,  live-critiqued eight press kits from small and large stores with different approaches to their events programming. Pelly noted SIBA-member stores tend to focus on their story and place in their community, which is very positive. However, she emphasized the importance of including an up-to-date grid, something lacking in most press kits critiqued, showing numbers for attendees, venue seating, and books sold at successful author events. Pelly’s Easy Press Kit Checklist and Press Kit Template are now available in SIBA’s Peer Brain Trust under “Working with Publishers.” Pelly’s next webinar with SIBA is How to Pitch Your Store to Publicists on Thursday, May 24 at 2PM. Attendees will learn how to have productive conversations with publishers at Book Expo’s Speed Dating, and to stay on publishers’ radar all year long. Please sign up to join us!


A recording of Pelly’s Press Kit webinar will be available soon. Booksellers who attended shared the following:


“It helped me de-clutter and focus on what is essential...It was very helpful to take notes and listen to her responses and critiques; her criticisms of all of the different press kits were the best part as she allowed her honest reactions and thought processes to come through rather than just leaving us to rely on her tip sheet...We're putting direct input from the webinar onto the page!” --John Cavalier, Owner of Cavalier House Books


Having our newly minted press release critiqued by Maribeth was affirming. She thoroughly explained the rationale behind the advice she gave us for changes and helped me see how well we were and weren't communicating our strengths. Maribeth offers fresh eyes combined with real focus on the appropriate goals for each element of a press kit.” --Adah Fitzgerald, Owner of Main Street Books


“I enjoyed seeing what everyone else does and seeing the examples...I am planning on attending the next one and think it will be a great build on the previous material. I did make a quick reference numbers sheet which was something we were lacking. I have since shared with publicists and reps so hopefully will see some traction from that!”

--Jamie Rogers Southern, Operations Director of Bookmarks


“Avid definitely benefited from having our press kit reviewed by Maribeth. It was great to hear what we were doing right, and things we could improve upon. It was definitely worth my time to attend the webinar.” --Rachel Watkins, Communications Director of Avid Bookshop 

 

"The press kit webinar was so helpful. We learned so much and hope to implement what we learned very soon. The most helpful part was just being able to wrap our minds around what a press kit actually is, and what that consists of. The examples were phenomenal. Walking through what publishers look for and other things that give you a leg up when talking with publishers was an eye opener in the best way. We're still babies at this, so we really appreciate the time and effort y'all put in to this presentation." --Lauren Brown, Assistant Manager of The Story Shop

 

"I got a whole lot out of it.  I will be designing the [press kit] solely off what I have learned and it helped us out a whole lot.  I am so glad I got to be a part of it."--Jamille Christman, Marketing Director of of Eagle Eye Book Shop

 

"As quickly as we move past IBD, I will be using the template, and the copious notes I took during the presentation to design my very first store press kit. I found the evaluations of other bookstore press kits super helpful, as I am a visual learner. I will fashion mine according to the best examples Maribeth pointed out, and look forward to shopping it at BOOK EXPO."--Star Lowe, Owner of Star Line Books

THE SITE VISIT (AKA, Nicki goes to VALSPAR)

Innisbrook ResortWhen Wanda Jewell told me that our annual site visit to the Innisbrook Resort in preparation for upcoming Discovery Show in September would be in March, she did warn me. "It will be during Valspar" she cautioned. I must have looked blank, because she added "the golf tournament." I shrugged and nodded. It was Florida. There would be golf, I thought.

It wasn't until we hit the traffic on US 19 and found ourselves behind a row of coach buses that I realized, oh it's a GOLF TOURNAMENT. I'm not a huge golf fan, but I still immediately called my dad. "Guess where I am!" I gloated. (Read more! || Register for #SIBA18)

So what do we have to look forward to in September?

TonyMEET THE BOOKSELLER

Tony Peltier, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC

website || facebook || twitter

How long you've been a bookseller: I've been a bookseller for 16 years. 10 years at Borders and 6 at Quail Ridge.

Best part about being a bookseller: . . .is the books! I get to buy and sell books for a living! And, of course, connecting with people through books.

 

Sadness is a White Bird Frankenstein in BaghdadThe Mars RoomThe Sea Beast Takes a Lover

Tony's Staff FavoritesBooks I'm reading:
I just finished Sadness is a White Bird by Moriel Rothman-Zecher. Almost finished The Sea Beast Takes a Lover by Michael Andreasen. In the middle of Frankenstein in Baghdad by Ahmed Saadawi. And just started The Mars Room by Rachel Kushner.

They are all wonderful and completely different from each other.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spill Simmer Falter WitherFavorite handsell of 2017:
Spill Simmer Falter Wither by Sara Baume
So beautiful and beautifully written, devastatingly sad, but in a way that reminds you that you're alive.

Social Media Handles: I'm not on social media. I did Twitter for about 6 months, but made myself delete it.

Best thing we did this year at the store:
I'd have to say, the amazing people we hired this year. We have a wonderful staff, but this year in particular we added some incredible people with great experience in and out of bookselling

Top priority for 2018: Get the word out. Get all these amazing books in people's hands and brains.

And get people to realize that if they don't buy from us, we won't be around forever. Don't take your independent bookstore for granted.

Favorite SIBA programming benefit:
SIBA gave scholarships to two of our staff to go to New Orleans, which they raved about. I'd love to learn more about what SIBA does.


BRILLIANT BOOKSELLER IDEA(S) OF THE WEEK:

GET YOUR STAFF INVOLVED

SIBA wants to reach your frontline booksellers

Did you know that every SIBA core member store can add as many staff as they'd like to their account? SIBA encourages stores to include their staff under their accounts so they have access to all the information and opportunities available to SIBA member booksellers, including information about scholarships, review copy offers, calls for nominations for Okra Picks and the Southern Book Prize, and heads up about important upcoming events.

Here's how to add staff members to your account:

  1. Log in. Then navigate to your account profile by clicking at the top of the page where it says "Welcome"
  2. Click on the "Information & Settings" tab on the left in your profile.
  3. Select "Sub-accounts" from the options at the top of the profile.

From there, you can create sub accounts yourself, or send invites to your staff. Every account must have it's own unique email address, so there is no need to sign up all your staff under the store email. But you can invite them using their own email.

You can also simply send a list of your staff -- names and email addresses -- to nicki@sibaweb.com, and SIBA will add them to your accout.

 


THE SOUTHERN BOOK PRIZE

Nominations are due by February 14! | NOMINATE HERE

#southernbookprize #SBP18badge

NOMINATIONS OPEN FOR 2018 AWARD

Each year, hundreds of booksellers across the South vote on their favorite "handsell" books of the year. These are the "southern" books they have most enjoyed selling to customers; the ones that they couldn't stop talking about. The Southern Book Prize was created to recognize great books of southern origin.

What books can be nominated? For a book to be eligible, it must be set in the South, or the author must be Southern (preferably both) and it must have been published within the previous calendar year.

Who can nominate a book? Books can be nominated by SIBA-member booksellers. But stores can submit nominations on behalf of the their customers, so if you are not a bookseller, you can request your local bookstore nominate a title on your behalf.

If I nominated an Okra Pick, does that count? It sure does! All Okra Pick books are automatically included as Southern Book Prize nominations.

 


B3! WEBINARS

February 14 at 2PM: Inventory Activism with Kimberly Daniels and Erica Merrell.

Join Erica Merrell, former owner of Wild Iris Books, and SIBA Board member Kimberly Daniels of The Country Bookshop as they explain how inventory can be a powerful force when serving customers.

Encouraging Diversity in Young Readers

Northshire's 'Open Mind' Scholarship
Northshire Bookstore, with locations in Manchester, Vt., and Saratoga Springs, N.Y., has launched the Open Mind Scholarship, which is designed to honor "the diversity of thought, feelings, information and perspectives found in books, as well as the power of books to change people's lives." Each year the Northshire will award $1,000 scholarships to two college-bound high school seniors, one from New York and one from Vermont. To enter the contest, students must write up to one page on how a book has exposed them to something new and how it has impacted their lives.

 


Bookselling without BordersBOOKSELLING WITHOUT BORDERS

Scholarship applications are now being accepted

Bookselling Without Borders is a program that has been developed to encourage diverse and international literature and also to connect American booksellers to the global publishing community. It is generously supported by Catapult, Europa Editions, Graywolf, The New Press, Other Press, Princeton University Press, Rutgers University Press — and also by Ingram Content Group and the Frankfurt Book Fair U.S. Bookseller Prize.

Twelve all-expenses-paid scholarships will be awarded this year.
