With the variety of ways you can market your book today, you need Goose River Press to help you complete the task.
Library of Congress Control Number — Goose River Press can now register your publication with the Library of Congress. You will receive an LCCN number for the cataloging of your book on the national library database. Librarians use this number to locate the Library of Congress catalog information for your book and also to order catalog cards. Nearly 20,000 libraries subscribe to this service and some order almost every cataloged book. This registry is essential to books being sold to libraries.
Copyright — A copyright must be obtained to protect your work. Goose River Press can provide both the copyright and the Library of Congress registry.
Bar Code — Books being sold to wholesalers, distributors, and bookstores must have a Bar Code printed on the back cover. Goose River Press can create your own unique Bar Code.
INGRAM DISTRIBUTION OPTION!
The Ingram Option will make your book available through the following markets:
INGRAM: The nation’s largest book wholesaler to bookstores and libraries.
BAKER & TAYLOR: Wholesale book distributor to libraries and bookstores.

NACSCorp: National Assoc. of College Stores (wholesaler to the academic market)
Your book will also be available through other markets both in the US markets and internationally.
You do not have to supply Goose River Press with books to participate in this program. We will print them as they are sold and you don't have to pay shipping to these markets, so you will receive more profit for your book.
The enrollment fee is $250.00, with a $25/year maintenance fee thereafter.
You can also have your title appear for a one-time insertion in Ingram's Advance Catalog (goes out to all their customers) for a fee of $150.00. This goes out approx. 3-4 months after your title goes online.
