Selling to college bookstores
Has anyone tried selling to college bookstores? I know Barnes and Noble runs many of them; are there other well-known operators?
What is the typical markup these stores charge? Any tips on negotiating a low mark-up?
Usually these stores would insist on liberal return policies, which doesn't really work with self-published books (usually zero return policy, since they are print-on-demand). Any idea how much flexibility the stores have on this?
