SIBA Membership Benefits - Annual tradeshow is this month!

1.     SIBA provides a list of its member stores – including contact names, email addresses, as well as phone and mailing addresses.

2.     Be a STAR:  SIBA operates a speakers’ bureau for authors, the Southern Traveling Authors Registrations Service (STAR) that is marketed to bookstores and their customers.

3.     Advertise:  SIBA has a wide variety of very cost effective advertising options for authors that can target bookstores and their staff, as well as consumers. eBlasts, banner ads, sponsorships, catalog listings, galley giveaways…we work with authors to help them create the biggest impact possible for their book while remaining in their budget.
