Again this year Publication Consultants will be the major publisher participate in ReadAlaska; our twenty-second year. ReadAlaska is Alaska’s premier book fair. We’ve been working with the event coordinators, Ed Bovey and Alissa Crandall, to make this year’s event even better than past ReadAlaska’s—and better publicized. A ReadAlaska website <http://bit.ly/1F2RRNv> has been created and will include book reviews for participating authors. If you’d like your book reviewed, schedule your ReadAlaska 2015 reservation, send us a copy of the review, and we’ll see that the review gets listed, where possible, with a picture of the cover.
We’re calling for reservations now for ReadAlaska 2015, Saturday, November 27 from 10 AM to 6 PM, Friday, November 28 from 10 AM to 6 PM, and Sunday, November 29 from Noon to 5 PM. As mentioned above, this year’s event promises to be even better than previous years and once again dominated by Publication Consultants’ authors and their books. We are again printing a nice brochure to give people as they enter the museum and will ask authors to hand these out as in years past. The brochure invites people to come upstairs and meet the authors. We also will have three large banners on stands placed in strategic areas in the museum. In addition, we’ll be producing a flyer authors can print and post on bulletin boards, other appropriate places, and hand out.
Here’s how to schedule your reservation. Kindly go to our website, click on Book Signings, then Author Signing Requests or click <http://bit.ly/1hkXoJN> to go directly to the signup page, and then click on the large blue sign up button at the bottom of the page. Follow the prompts, and under the Location field, select ReadAlaska. Then put in your preferred day and beginning and ending times. Most authors choose to arrive when the day’s event opens and remain until closing time. Although we welcome authors whose schedule only allows attendance less than full time on the three days, by necessity, we give preference to authors arriving at opening and staying until closing. When making your reservation please put in the note section if you have location preference or would like to sit next to a given author.
As always, we will have everything set up, including books, ready for your arrival at your scheduled time. We’ll have enough space so you can make a nice display for your books. You’re encouraged to bring a table covering and small display item for your place on the table to attract people to your space. Bring your banner and stand. We will also have a central cash register and check out so you need not worry about taking money or credit cards.
We look forward to ReadAlaska 2015 and once again associating with authors. We hope to see you there.
