It's every author's dream: selling your book by the hundreds or even thousands. But that could take a very long time if your sales are one book at a time.

Author and CIPA member Michelle Rodenburg had a better idea. After hearing self publishing expert Brian Jud speak at CIPA last fall about bulk sales, Michelle took action. She bought Jud's best selling book How to Make Real Money Selling Books and made a plan.

Learn Michelle's step by step plan for selling 5,000 books to American Furniture Warehouse as a premium for customers.
