Title: Marketing Book in UK
Post by: cherise-arthur on August 30, 2021, 10:59 PM
I need some help with publishing.  I want to promote my book in the UK.  I am reading that some bookstores in UK are not huge fans of Amazon.  I know that Ingram Sparks does not distribute to UK.  I would be curious if anyone here has distributed in the UK from the US and what your process was - I appreciate any advice you could offer.  It is a children's book - paperback and the story is about a town in England.  I am trying to figure out if I buy just one ISBN number for both UK and US?  Lots of questions before we proceed with publishing and printing I need answered.  Thank you

Hi Cherise,

Is this a self-published book? If so, let me know if you would like me to move this post to our self-publishing boards. You might get better answers there. . .

Have you contacted the RA for the British Isles region? I bet they know a lot. Contact info is on the region's page on the SCBWI website.
