How can I get Ingram to sell my book?

Getting into Ingram

Have you tried using a book wholesaler? Maybe you should. Ingram is one of the largest book wholesalers in the country. There are only two ways to get your book into Ingram:

  • Through a book distributor
  • Through the POD printer they own

There are book distribution programs that utilize the services of Ingram's printer at a good discount. Non-customers can deal directly with Lightning Source, Ingram's printing press, but at an increased price.
