Bookstore Perks: Booklove 2.0

This year, indie bookstores have taken maximum advantage of several programs and services from Ingram Content Group designed to set booksellers up for success at any time of year and help them make the most of the holiday buying season. Ingram’s Booklove 2.0 and its new consolidated ordering are just two of many year-round programs that indie booksellers have found beneficial. 


Wednesday with Ingram: February

We have several new ipage® topics for you this spring. 


Highlighting the Taste for Irreverence

By Philip Wallace, Marketing Systems & Content Analyst
When we change our calendars from one year to another, there is a familiar ritual of undertaking self-improvement. I certainly don’t want to knock that idea, as I am a firm believer in aspiring to better myself in all the facets of life. Yet, I tend to find a particular sort of affirmation in hearing from voices who don’t necessarily have it all together and don’t mind letting their eccentricities shine a bit.  


Tuesdays with ipage® Webinar Series

Beginning February 7, you’ll have the opportunity to learn first-hand from our team of ipage experts.

Publishing in 21st Century

With digital you get more. But more of what? That’s the question, and the answer is up to you. All too often, going digital can mean more of what you don’t need. More data that you don’t know what to do with. More expense. More assets, formats and channels to manage. More reliance on Amazon. More hassle and more headache.  


In Memoriam


The Girl Before: The Excerpt

In the tradition of The Girl on the Train, The Silent Wife, and Gone Girl comes an enthralling psychological thriller that spins one woman’s seemingly good fortune, and another woman’s mysterious fate, through a kaleidoscope of duplicity, death, and deception.
