Matchbook Marketing has partnered with Franklin Web Printing to produce an 8 page print newsletter promoting Black authors
across all genres. Matchbook donated curation and design, and Franklin Web donated staff time and the use of its presses. As a result, this 8-page issue is available for just the cost of the paper it is printed on and shipping. This
translates to $29.50 for the minimum order of 250 copies.
The newsletter features jackets and publisher blurbs of 59 books, plus lists of additional titles in each section. To keep costs low, this special edition has singular branding and will not reflect each store. Nevertheless, Matchbook expects
the issue to increase sales for indie bookstores who distribute it.
Viewpoint Books in Columbus, IN has generously purchased 750 copies to donate to stores who can't afford these at present. So the first three stores to let Matchbook know they could use this help will get 250 copies totally free of charge.
The deadline to order copies of the edition is Sunday, August 9. Copies should arrive in store by August 21. A full list of titles and their blurbs are available on the order site: https://welovebooksellers.com/black-voices-special-edition/
