ADD THE CATALOG TO YOUR WEB SITE!
For IndieCommerce stores, the 2018 NEIBA Holiday Catalog page has now been added to the IndieCommerce site. All you need to do is create this link and publicize it:
http://www.yourstore.com/holiday/NEIBA/holidaycatalog.html and the catalog page will work with a shopping cart.
So Gibson’s Bookstore would be:
and so on…
If you don’t have an IndieCommerce site here is a “stripped” version of the catalog. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/kpmjg6wu9zbh2q4/AAAYuAMZIiGhsphzrEPoiwe1a?dl=0
Just add the unique-to-their-store “buy the books” links under each title.
And if you need it for your web site, social media or to make shelf talkers HERE is the text of the catalog in a WORD document.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

How are titles selected for the holiday catalog?
• Publishers are the primary decision-makers in what titles are available for advertising in the holiday catalog. We have a good relationship with our publishing partners who tend to know our market, know what books they have marketing budgets for, and propose books accordingly.
• If a title seems questionable to the indie market, a conversation may take place with the publisher; we always keep an eye on free speech and free press, and respect to diversity and content in every way.
• Title lists are on the NEIBA website well in advance of catalog publication for review by booksellers. (Links are provided in the organization newsletter.) If a title seems objectionable, booksellers are welcome to contact NEIBA before catalog publication.
• Free speech extends to titles and viewpoints an individual bookseller might not agree with.
