Directory of Publishing Associations from John Kremer

John Kremer is a book marketing consultant and author of 1001 Ways to Market Your Books. He caters to the small indie press and self-publishing crowd. But still, I get his newsletter every week and there are often tips I find useful.

So I was happy, as I was trolling for more publishing associations to mention here, to find his list of nearly 100 of them. He freely admits that some may be out of date (for instance, I can't find much online evidence of the Indianapolis Publishers Association that he mentions). But there are still plenty of good leads here for ferreting out smaller publishers and contact names.

Many local book publishing groups don't have an online presence. They simply meet once a month and go on with their lives. That's why it's hard to keep track of them all. Some also live or die based on one person's enthusiasm to keep a group going.

A clarification: I don't just cater to the self-publishing or indie publishing crowd. I offer good info for authors, publishers of all stripes, etc. Although the fact of the matter is that the indie publishers are the most receptive. Unfortunately, the larger publishers think they already know everything. They don't.
