This is an important aspect of the release phase for small publishers, in particular. The reason is that, unlike their major publishing counterparts, small-timers do not have the same marketing machine or historic reputation rolling behind them, demanding and imploring their extensive retailer database stock their publications.
Instead, retailers go off their gut-feeling; whether or not they are receiving requests for a book, whether there is buzz around it, or whether they are seeing and hearing news or commentary about it.
