How Does PW Select Work?

Each issue of PW Select features interviews with authors, book announcements and listings, news, features, analysis, book reviews, and more.
Your PW Select listing includes your book cover, a brief description of your book, and on-sale information.
In addition to the listing in PW Select, your book also receives all of the valuable promotions listed above.
