    How do you find out when your book has been listed in the Ingram catalog and if B & T has listed it? We are a new publishing company learning the ropes.
    thanks

  2. Hello, sorry to reply a bit late. Ingram is a different entity from B&T. If you are distributed by Ingram, I imagine your book gets into their online catalog(s) soon. I know they have several catalogs, although you may have to pay more to get into some, and they go out regularly – ask your representative, or your local bookstore or library. B&T is difficult to get into, at least for small publishers. Amazon CreateSpace Expanded Distribution uses B&T as well as Ingram, but best to read up on the not so good of Expanded Distribution.
