SCB Distributors to the Trade
Starting in January 2016, Terra Nova's titles will be distributed in the U.S. by SCB Distributors. This means that our authors will automatically gain access to SCB's nationwide sales force, and their ongoing relationships with local, regional, and national booksellers.
As many self-published and newly published authors have learned, an Amazon book page and inclusion in the Ingram catalog are not enough to produce substantial sales.
Competition for reader eyeballs is fierce; authors nowadays need a dedicated, national sales force and an established publisher's marketing know-how to achieve the results they want.
To maximize this new distribution relationship, we have been busy over the last few months aligning our publication schedule with SCB's semiannual catalog releases. SCB (and now, TNB) publishes its catalog to the trade in January and August of each year, showcasing new releases, evergreens, and backlists for nearly 200 of the nation's most dynamic small publishers.
Terra Nova Books is proud and excited to announce that we will be publishing four new titles in the first part of 2016:
- Once Upon A Lie, a new novel by Michael French;
- Incarnation, a debut novel from Laura Davis Hays;
- Jewish Rites of Death, by Richard A. Light, a wealth of information, beautiful images, and moving personal stories that illuminate an ancient tradition's role in strengthening spiritual life today;
- Eat to Beat Alzheimer's, by Francie Healey, a book of great-tasting recipes based on the most up-to-date research into foods you can eat to ward off and minimize the scourge of dementia.
If you are a reader, our new relationship with SCB will make it easier than ever to buy our books at your local bookstore. If the title you want is not in stock there, just tell the bookseller it's in the SCB database, and they will order the book and notify you when it's in.
