Have you got your eye on selling to your local book shop?
Don’t just assume that because you are a local, don’t assume that they will want to stock your book. You are more likely to be successful if you see the transaction from their perspective, as this post booksellers’ objectives explains.
And of course, you should make sure they know you are local already, by being a well established customer.
