  1. Adam, really comprehensive overview, appreciate it. I would suggest a couple notes: trade reviews (PW, Kirkus, LJ, Foreword) are mostly licensed by wholesalers Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Bowker. If you can score one, your review automatically gets uploaded to their databases, where librarians and booksellers shop for books. Secondly, our magazine, Foreword Reviews (parent of Clarion) has reviewed self-published titles for over 20 years. Our guidelines are online. Thanks again for spreading the good word so well.

  2. Adam, I agree with Wolf O’Rourc the information was tops. However the audio quality was very poor. Is it possible to get a PDF of your presentation. I would appreciate it very much and I am sure your followers will too.

    Many thanks.
