There are hundreds of thousands of books published in the English language every year. An increasing number of them are released by indie publishing authors — i.e. authors who, like their indie musician colleagues, have taken it upon themselves to shepherd their own works through the publishing process and (hopefully) to a waiting audience.
For many of them, seeing their book listed in one of the main book wholesale distribution catalogues is a primary objective. Unfortunately, few realize that this really does nothing to encourage most booksellers to “take a chance” on their book. And when, on occasion, they do see books sent out to booksellers, they’re often shocked at how little they end up earning from the transaction. Publishing, for many of these disappointed folks, seems akin to burning money (if not books!).
