Writer's Summit Tip #7:
Put a category classification on the back of your book.
It should match an official BISAC code. For example a WWII Military History written by Claud Aldrich called A Boy, A Ship and A War should be classified BISAC code: BIO008000, BIOGRAPHY and AUTOBIOGRAPHY / Military. If you want to add another qualifier after the official one, that's fine, but the top two classifications should match the official BISAC Code list so that bookstores know where to file it appropriately. And the bookstore buyers know you know the industry's best practices of using BISAC codes.
If you don't know what category you should have on your book, go to your favorite bookstore and ask yourself what shelf it belongs on, write down their categories. One of the reasons publishers / self-published authors put the categories on the book is to help the book store employees file the books on the proper shelves.
