If your book is now published (congratulations 🎉, by the way), or nearing publication, then you may be wondering: "Where can people buy my book?"
To quickly find some of the links to where your book is listed online, log in to Octavo and click the Online Listings tab.
Under Tellwell's Managed Distribution program, your paperback (and hardcover, if applicable) book will be set up for print-on-demand distribution through Ingram, which will make your book available to over 39,000 retailers around the world. We also offer an Enhanced Amazon which optimizes paperback listings on Amazon.ca in particular.
Each retailer can decide whether or not they list your book, but the most popular retailers that typically list our authors' books online are amazon.com, bookdepository.com, chapters.indigo.ca and/or barnesandnoble.com -- you can visit any of these sites and search for your book title and author name to find the online retail links for your book.
The best retailer links to purchase your book from depends on the reader's country.
