I chose iUniverse because of the Chapter package—it really allowed me to have immediate exposure for my novel and in a very professional format
Bloomington, IN (Vocus) November 19, 2010
iUniverse, the leading book marketing, editorial services, and supported self-publishing company, recently held its first in-store book signing through a new partnership between Indigo Books & Music and iUniverse. The October 30 signing, at the Chapters retail store located in the Chinook Centre in Calgary, Alberta, featured Lisa Dewar, author of “Kiss Her, Kill Her.” Dewar signed more than 20 books and met countless other readers at the two-hour event.
“I chose iUniverse because of the Chapter package—it really allowed me to have immediate exposure for my novel and in a very professional format,” Dewar said. “My first book signing experience was fantastic. It really gave me an opportunity to interact with the readers.”
Dewar published her novel using iUniverse’s Indigo Chapters Bookstore Signing Publishing package. Features of this publishing package include guaranteed stocking of the book in a Chapters bookstore for a minimum of eight weeks, an in-store book signing, conversion of the content to make it compatible with Kobo—Indigo Chapters’ eReader, eligibility for iUniverse recognition programs and booksellers’ returnability.
“We’re pleased to offer our authors this unique opportunity to have guaranteed stocking and in-store experiences with Indigo Chapters,” said Kevin Weiss, president and CEO of Author Solutions, Inc., iUniverse’s parent company. “It’s another example of indie book publishing offering more authors the opportunity to break through obstacles that previously existed in bringing their books to readers.”
