If you have a self-published book, how do you approach local book stores?
If you used createspace do you sell them books you bought, or have the store order from createspace? Do you try to incorporate a book signing?
Most local bookstores are open to letting in new and upcoming authors advertise their books there, because it means more publicity for them. So you need to have the book at hand, and information that the bookstore can post for everyone to see.
