Question ID: 76847
I am thinking of puting together a book with listings of gay sites,
pubs, general info and so on, and I want to sell in in USA.

Who should I contact in order to:

1) Get someone to print it at low cost
2) Find a company that will distribute it to shops, clubs, bars all
over USA?
 -or do I need to contact these one by one?

I live in Sweden and I want the book to be printed, shipped and sold
within US without it ever reaching me in this country, to keep costs

Hello Mackan!
Thanks for using Google Answers!
Before I begin to answer this question (which I would LOVE to do), I
need to know a few more things:
1) What type of a circulation are you considering?  If my advice means
anything, I think that you should begin with the major "GLBT-friendly"
cities (San Fran, New York, Chicago, etc).  Use that as a test market
and then expand from there. Or better yet, try out one city, see how
it flies, and then go where that road takes you.  In order to find a
distribution company, I think that it would be a good idea to do this
because a national distributor will cost you much more than just an
arm and a leg!
2) You mentioned that you wanted to sell this book, but there are many
GLBT phonebooks that I know of which distribute to friendly
neighborhoods and are free.  They make their profits via
advertisements....quite lucrative, from what I can tell.  I just went
down the street and picked up a GLBT phonebook for Chicago and found
it to be pretty colorful and intricate---therefore expensive to print.
 Something that I have NOT found in this book is a listing of GLBT
websites.  This is a great idea and worth considering, but as you
know, the internet is practically endless--how would you decide which
sites to include and which millions of others to leave out?
I look forward to your response!
Thanks for using Google!  We'll get this answer solved!
Take care,
There is no answer at this time.

Hi... perhaps you should consider publishing an e-book and having it
downloadable in PDF format.
