Christian Book Buyer’s Guide
We created the Christian Book Buyer’s Guide as a way to market our author’s books directly to bookstores and churches, without the author having to do all the leg work. Comprised of a variety of different sizes and types of advertisement space, there is something for every book out there!
This catalog is designed, printed, and distributed entirely by us! We help you choose the perfect ad placement for your book, then our designers utilize the cover of your book as well as the description, cost, and purchasing information to craft an expertly assembled ad.
Once it’s finished, we print off 10,000 copies and mail it to 5,000 churches, 5,000 Christian bookstores, and digitally deliver it to our entire email list of over 100,000 Christian book-lovers around the world! We ship to big-name bookstores as well as independently-owned bookstores to give your book every possible chance of being picked up and stocked in a bookstore. Plus, certain editions of the CBBG Catalog are also personally handed out to book buyers at trade show events!
