Albany, NY bookseller Susan Novotny, who owns The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza and Market Block Books, is using the POD technology at Troy Book Makers (which she co-owns) to launch a publishing imprint. It’s called Staff Press Picks. She tells the Times Union, “Our staff still reads books and they know how to hand-sell books to our customers. The books my staff picks sell faster than the reported bestsellers. Now, some of those books will come directly from us.” Troy Book Makers has helped area authors self-publish more than 300 titles over the past four years.
