    That's not how selling books in the US works. You need to market your books to publishers. That is where MOST bookstores get their new books from.

      I was going to say something similar. Also, if you're dead set on doing it your way (which may be less effective but not impossible, especially with indy publishers) try Guru.com, I've noticed they have a higher ration of US based workers than other sites like that.

        You need a distributor to accept your book for marketing - not a freelance sales person.

        You could start with sites like bookmarket.com - lots of publishing and distribution info there.

        We're talking print books - but it might be better to promote in the U.S. as an ebook and use affiliate networks - or Amazon Kindle.

          I am a publisher. This book is already listed in Amazon.com. I am looking for the sale person to help me promote to the bookstore owner.

          Thanks for let me know the bookmarket.com. I did not notice about this website before.
