How To Get Your Book On The Front Table
Book sales have been skyrocketing the past few years since self-publishing became the mainstream and majority of books released per month. However, it has become extremely difficult to market a book when 20,000+ new authors per month are using the same platforms to promote his or her product on.
Front Table of New Books has created this new platform so authors and his or her products can be seen in the forefront and not become lost in the multitude of books on Amazon or other online book retailers. There are similar websites that are designed as a playing field for authors to promote books, but they have no limit to the amount of books showcased per month, and books still get lost in the mix.
Front Table of New Books limits the amount of books seen by the buying public to 50 books every two weeks. An author’s goal is to sell books. Not a few books, but a lot of books. In order to do so, the book (product) needs to be seen by the people most interested in what you have to sell. Social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter is where most authors attempt to promote their book, but that is failing as it has become authors trying to sell to other authors and not the readers.
Back in the not so distant past when Brick and Mortar chains reigned superior, there was one place an author wanted his or her book to be displayed – the first table of books upon entering the bookstore. Those books on the table generated the most sales. However, the practice is known as Co-op, and each book on each table costs publishers anywhere from $3,000 to $30,000, and even up to $50,000 depending on placement. Front Table of New Books is the digital version of that first table where an author can be seen and not lost in the shuffle. The best part is, now authors and books can be seen in the front without the extreme cost for placement.
Front Table of New Books is working towards 1,000,000 subscribers and a bi-monthly newsletter is sent to notify them of new book releases. The cost for getting on the Front Table is less than the cost for running a Facebook advertisement for seven days.
Author Interviews are conducted with only those that purchase a Spotlight Book position, and the interview remains in the achieves for long-term book exposure.

Publishers have always and still do have the advantage over self-published authors when it comes to getting a book seen by the buying public. Front Table of New Books is designed to level the playing field and give hard-working, talented authors a chance to compete with large publishing houses when they have to pay for marketing with money out of their own pocket. The cost difference between authors and publishers for book slots might not seem reasonable to a publisher, but it would not be fair to independent authors if publishers monopolized the website.
Rates for Publishers
