New Release submission information

Our New Releases page is consistently in our top 8 most-viewed pages each month. We welcome people who wish to list their new releases here and in our well-read newsletter The Read, for a fee of $40 + GST for a month-long listing. Here's what you need to know about listing here:

This page (and our association) exists primarily for the benefit of New Zealand booksellers. If you have a title you have published physically, which you are planning only to directly sell from your own website, please consider other marketing methods. If you have an internationally-published title, place this on our site once it is available in New Zealand. 

If you have an e-book, this is fine as long as you have physical books also, that you are interested in getting booksellers to sell on your behalf. Though we are happy to link to your site for distribution, we will not allow a link to Amazon on this site. 

Here are the basics that we require to create a listing for you: 

Blurb / Description (no more than 3 paragraphs):
Format: (paperback or hardback, or both)
Size and extent: 
Age range (If children's book): 
Distributor (contact and website):
Plus a JPEG of the front cover (under 1MB)

We don't need a lot of information about the book's author, unless the title is a non-fiction book that requires some expertise to be proven by the author. All of this information needs to be sent to Sarah Forster You will be invoiced at the end of each calendar month for any new release added during that month, by Booksellers NZ.

Thank you for considering our listing service as part of your marketing output. 

If you are a self-published author, please feel free to download these handy notes from our 2016 Self-Publishing Seminar which was held in Auckland on 2 June. We will be holding one of these in association with the Booksellers NZ conference once again in 2017, during August 2017.
