Announce Your Book in Ingram's Advance Catalog

Advertise your book to book buyers worldwide in Ingram's Advance catalog

The Ingram Advance Announcement service is a graphic advertisement of your book in Ingram's Advance catalogue—a monthly listing of newly published books distributed by Ingram. This slick catalogue is read by book buyers, retailers, wholesalers and other book outlets that receive Ingram's distribution.

By listing your publication in Ingram's Advance, you are announcing your new book to the people most interested in buying it.

An Advance listing is approximately 3.5" x 1.25" and includes:

  • Book cover image
  • Book ordering information
  • 250-word sales annotation

The listing is in black and white and is organized alphabetically within genre categories. Since this option is best used for the announcement of the book's publication, it must be selected prior to publication approval.

Due to popularity of this option, combined with limited catalogue space, it is not unusual for an Advance listing to appear up to 4-6 months following the publication of your book.

The Ingram Advance Announcement service becomes non-refundable once purchased.
