The IBPA member benefit
IBPA members receive $75 off the American Booksellers Association’s (ABA’s) Advance Access Program. Due to the volume of offers and the staff time it takes to process and aggregate them, ABA charges $175 per title. IBPA members pay only $100 – a savings of $75.
About ABA’s Advance Access Program
Advance Access is a twice-monthly email sent by the American Booksellers Association to member bookstores containing offers to receive galleys, reading copies, or finished books for review. After receiving the title from a publisher, a store can decide whether to carry it. They could also decide to nominate the title for the IndieNext List. ABA makes no promises, but the Advance Access Program has proved to be a very effective way to get the word out about titles.
