Getting Your Staff on Edelweiss: B3 Webinar with Jill Hendrix is now available to view

Posted By Nicki Leone, Wednesday, May 30, 2018

ISN'T IT TIME YOU LOOKED AT EDELWEISS+?

Getting Your Staff on EdelweissDid you know that SIBA member bookstores have submitted over 500 reviews of books on Edelweiss+ in the last three months? The option to post reviews to SIBA at the same time as they are sent to Indie Next and publishers has proved so convenient and effective that SIBA regularly receives 20+ reviews from booksellers every week. You see some of the highlights below. But from our perspective here at SIBA, having such enthusiastic feedback has been invaluable. When eight different booksellers post rave reviews of Tommy Orange's book, There There, that tells us it's going to be an important title for SIBA members!

But Edelweiss is not just a tool for requesting review copies and posting reviews. Stores use it to communicate with sales reps, create and track orders, gauge the general interest in forthcoming books, research selections for book clubs and community groups, identify potential future events, and inform their staff about forthcoming books.

Watch last month's B3 Webinar, "Getting Your Staff on Edelweiss" to hear Jill Hendrix, owner of Fiction Addiction in Greenville, SC, explain the many ways she uses Edelweiss in her store and encourages her staff to participate as well.

9780374158378 The Electric Woman 5/1/2018
" Her memoir of her time on the road for a season as a performer in the last traveling sideshow is more than a documentary of a freak show. It is the story of a daughter coming to terms with the woman her mother was."

9780316556347 Circe 4/10/2018
"I think I now have a crush on Daedalus."

9780763693558 Alma and How She Got Her Name 4/10/2018
"a great introduction to family history or just a lovely way to dive into the deep stories behind everyday things ( like a child's name!)."

9780143133124 The Ruin 7/3/2018
"The complex plot, the seamless intertwining of stories and the dogged determination of Cormac to find the truth takes this superb crime novel on a great journey through Ireland, and on a roller coaster ride of suspense."

9781594634925 The Art of Gathering 5/15/2018
"This book is great for the business leader, the casual dinner party host, or the person who dreams of having deeper connections with the community around them."

9780525520139 Cherry 8/14/2018
" A sparse, unflinching look at war, addiction, crime, and desperation that -- impossibly -- also happens to be hopelessly romantic and caustically funny. "

9780735221314 A Terrible Country 7/10/2018
"part immersive travel guide, part cultural commentary (on both Russia and the US), and part coming of age/family novel with socialist revolutionaries and hockey. I loved it."

9780735231702 The Creature of the Pines 4/10/2018
"Constantly laughing out loud, with wonderful and colorful characters, it makes for a great read aloud. Pick it up as soon as you can, especially if you have elementary and middle grade boys!"

"If the story doesn't pull you in (which would be difficult), then the artwork will!"

9780399557385 Smack Dab in the Middle of Maybe 7/10/2018
"A sweet, clever, standalone adventure story with an art history/mystery twist thrown in for good measure, Smack Dab in the Middle of Maybe should be smack dab on the top of the summer reading stack."

9780385542012 The Secret Token 6/5/2018
" I already know this is going to be my number one non-fiction/history pick for summer 2018."

9780525522119 My Year of Rest and Relaxation 7/10/2018
" Reading this novel feels something akin to watching a slow motion car wreck or seeing something that you know you're not supposed to be seeing. Grotesque and unsettling, but also magnificent and beautiful."
