What about sales to bookstores? Do you supply them? How do you get them into shops? 

         Zeus Publications distributes all its own titles and those of Poseidon Books.  Books are supplied to shops in the normal manner and stocks are kept on hand, should there be a demand for the title. There is no guarantee that shops will stock books, but our marketing department does approach shops with a view to making this happen. There is no cost to the author for this service and a royalty still applies on bookstore sales. Books are supplied to stores on  a sale or return basis at a fairly large discount, standard in the trade. It should be noted here that bookstores will only stock books if they want to and if they are interested in the title. Remember that there are millions of books out there each vying for shelf space in bookstores.
