Book Signings

In addition to the Talkeetna Alaska Lodge Publication Consultants’ authors can now schedule author signings at the Talkeetna Public Library. Many authors find that some of these less obvious, smaller venues offer more sales than larger ones.

Of course other venues are available: Barnes and Noble, Fireside Books, and Mosquito Books. To schedule a book signing kindly go to our website, <>. Click on Book Signings, then Author Signing Request, follow the prompts, and Author Services will take it from there. Once you’ve made the request you’ll receive confirmation that the request has been received. As soon as the bookseller approves the request you will receive notification from Author Services giving you details about the signing.

We’re still working on Carrs/Safeway and it looks like this will be happening before summer. We were encouraged when Costco came back to us and approved book signings; however, they put time of day restrictions, short selling time, and minimum sales. When we looked at it we determined that it was not profitable for either our authors or us. Fred Meyer corporate management has not been receptive to author signings.

Some authors have asked if there was something they could do to help. The answer is yes; wherever you shop ask to talk with a manager and ask them if it is possible to do book signings. Once you find that it’s possible kindly let us know the name of the person and contact information and we’ll take it from there. We’ve found that local management may have altitudes that corporate gives them for local events.

If you have questions about book signings please let us know.

Keep in touch,
