Get Ready for 2015 Holiday Selling and Shopping!
The AuthorU Board has decided to transition from the Jr. League Holiday selling format used a few years ago to the larger Colorado Country Christmas Mart that will roll out in early November this year. This means you will have the possibility of exposing your book to 25,000 potential buyers who are there to buy … something. Interested? Read on …
The location will be at the Denver Merchandise Mart on November 6-8. The first 50 AuthorU members who sign up will only pay $50 for the first book and $10 for additional books during the Early Bird time period. If you are a Tardy Bird, it will increase to $75 for the first book and $20 for each additional book after September 15th. As in the past, AuthorU will receive back 10 percent of all sales (all purchases will be handled by AuthorU with checks disbursed to participants before Thanksgiving).
Wait, wait … there’s more. Throughout the three days, there will be author signings in 90 minute blocks. The Mart has plenty of free parking … this is a great place to support the entire Colorado community AND do all your Holiday shopping at once. The AuthorU booth is huge — 10 x 25 — if people are heading for the restrooms, we are a few doors away. And we have a corner booth, so there’s great visibility for our Author Signings.
Heads up … this is for ALL AuthorU members, not just Colorado residents. You may not be here in Colorado for a book signing … but your fellow authors will be running the booth in a coop format; there will be a mini catalog with all titles in them to be handed out to all visitors; and we will have assigned members here who will be acting as though they are book sellers for others–that means you.
The AuthorU Booth will be directly to right one aisle and then straight back — it will be a major traffic area meaning we have ongoing traffic. Master designer Susie Scott will have her creative juices in play that will integrate the season flavor plus books, our central stage. Philippa Burgess will coordinate efforts for this year’s event and looks forward to debuting her new book as well.
