SIBA goes red and green in December!

Lady Banks’ Bookshelf will be heavy with the holiday (catalog).

SIBA Holiday CatalogThe SIBA Holiday Catalog is a huge gift to booksellers from publishers and assists in underwriting many of SIBA’s programs. This year SIBA, along with Lady Banks, will give a little back by using the month of December to promote the catalog and her titles. We want to show our appreciation in a big way by doing something that expresses our gratitude to the supporting publishers and the titles they place in the catalog.

For the entire month we will transform “Lady Banks Bookshelf”  -- SIBA’s high-visibility, direct-to-consumer book promotion venue -- into a showcase for the holiday catalog.  The Authors Round the South Facebook  page cover image will be dedicated to the holiday catalog, and a pinned post will promote a link to the catalog on AuthorsRoundTheSouth.com, where the titles will be linked to a rotating selection of SIBA’s indie bookstore members.  SIBA also plans on paid Facebook promotions of the post throughout the month of December. 

In addition, the December issues of Lady Banks’ Commonplace Book email newsletter will be dedicated to the titles in the catalog.  We will be hosting trailers, interviews, reviews, and info about the books in the Holiday Catalog and feature sections of the catalog across the month.  We are compiling related assets now and invite any publisher with content to support their catalog titles to send the content to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Instead of Happy Holidays, SIBA says Thank You!
