Q. Should I spend the $60 (now $85?) to advertise in Ingram's Advance Catalog (for bookstores and librarians)?

I get this question a lot, once we set you up on IngramSpark, you'll get some email marketing from them.

My answer:

No. I would advise against it.

If it was such a great deal, they wouldn't have to be so pushy!

You'll get more mileage out of spending the $60 advertising via Amazon KDP Ads (which we can assist you with).

PS: My opinion about this might change if Ingram actually sent a copy of the Advance catalog to the authors who place the ads in it! The actually readership is unknown and I haven't seen it impact sales for an author.
