BISAC codes help signal to potential buyers, retailers, distributors, and search engines what your book is about — the primary genre s , topic s , and theme s that matter in regards to your book. Take the time to do this right, because if you don't, no one else will do it for you. If it's not clear to them at first glance, they'll move on. Hi there!


BISAC Subject Headings

Assigning BISAC headings correctly can ensure that a title efficiently makes its way through intermediaries such as wholesalers and retailers into the hands of happy readers. On the flip side, coding a book incorrectly may mean it ends up in a forgotten corner of a bookstore or Website, surrounded by dissimilar titles that would never attract the people who are likely customers for it. The latest one, published in December , includes more than 73 new headings and 55 changes to almost 30 different sections. Although the cap is arbitrary to a degree, no more than three BISAC headings should be assigned to any single book. A title cannot have both a Juvenile and an Adult heading, for instance; and the same book cannot have both a Fiction and a Non-Fiction heading.
