I Sign with Book Wholesaler, Partners West

Soon, the story of G.I. Joe's and my dad will be going out in the world just like these balloons!

Soon, the story of G.I. Joe’s and my dad will be going out in the world just like these balloons!

I am so happy!  Partners West, THE Pacific Northwest regional book wholesaler, sent me a contract Wednesday and I signed on the dotted line Thursday!

I am thrilled, because Partners West will make Growing up With G.I. Joe’s easily available to bookstores.  In the book biz today, small press publishers (that is me with my  publishing company, Columbia Press) have a very hard time selling to bookstores because of the additional paperwork they have to do compared to ordering a book from a distributor or wholesaler.

After all, with them, a bookstore buyer can order, in just one order, a variety of books the wholesaler carries from a variety of publishers.  That really cuts down on a store’s labor cost, compared to ordering books from each individual publisher and then processing invoices from all these publishers.

So, thanks to Partners West, I look forward to having Growing up… in a bookstore near you!
