New England Library Association

Member books featured at NEIBA

Eight IPNE-member books will be represented at the Publishers PickNic at New England Independent Booksellers Assn. (NEIBA) conference in Providence, RI, from 9/30-10/2. 

Steven R. Porter, ARIA founder and publisher of Stillwater River Publications, will represent the eight at the lunchtime event on Sept. 30, where book distributors and reps review publishers' offerings in a "speed-dating" style event. 

All total, 24 IPNE members are exhibiting at NEIBA, including four who are doing pre-announced book signings. Good luck to all our IPNE authors and publishers at this important New England book show!

IPNE Fall 2014 Catalog

The bi-annual IPNE Catalog is an effective, low-cost way for members to promote their books. A basic listing just $35 (exhibitors at the fall book shows get double exposure with a free listing in the show inserts); and member display rates top out at $165 for a full-page book ad. 

Fall 2014 Catalog registration is closed, but Spring 2015 Catalog registration opens soon!
