Midwest Connections has grown by leaps and bounds in the past year, thanks to increasingly active participation from booksellers like you. More publishers are eager to participate, and more authors and books with ties to our region are finding their ways into readers' hands. Thank you to everyone who supports the program and uses our display materials to promote the literary culture of the Midwest.
Changes to Rebate Structure
To help make Midwest Connections a sustainable program, and to further maximize the impact the program has on sales and exposure for selected titles, we're adjusting our rebate structure to reward booksellers for additional promotions.
Effective beginning with rebate requests for January 2016's picks, MIBA will no longer offer $50 for using the free display materials we send out each month. Instead, you'll earn $25 for your display, but you'll be able to earn the difference back by employing an additional promotional strategy. The total rebate amount will remain at $125.
Here's how to maintain your $125/month rebate offer.

Have you ever wondered how Midwest Connections Picks are selected? We use a team of booksellers to look for titles and select the slate of picks every month. If this sounds like something you or one of your staffers would enjoy, please email Robert for more information. We'd love to hear from you.
