Details: For the past 15 years, the Los Angeles chapter of Sisters in Crime has sponsored a signing booth for its authors at the annual Los Angeles Times Festival of Books (http://events.latimes.com/festivalofbooks/), an event that historically attracts 130,000 to 150,000 book lovers.
This year, thanks to a grant from Sisters in Crime, Inc., the chapter is opening the opportunity to all members in good standing. Up to five authors will be assigned for each 2-hour slot: Saturday 10-12, 12-2, 2-4, 4-6 and Sunday 10-12, 12-2, 2-4 and 4-6. Sign up now for the time of your choice and one alternate signing time. We will make every attempt to accommodate your first choice but sign-up is first come, first served, so we may have to shift you to your second choice depending on demand.
If you are traditionally published and your books are in print, returnable and available through a distributor, send us the title of your most recent book and up to four titles from your backlist. Space limitations prohibit us from selling more than five titles from any authors. For all books, you must also include the publishers and ISBN #.
If you are traditionally published but your books are out of print or if you are self-published, our bookseller will sell your books on consignment (60/40 split). On the day of your signing, bring your books and the consignment form, which we provide. Please consult with the bookseller before you leave the booth. You must remove your books from the booth after your signing. We cannot store them or ship them to you. Maps and parking fees will be sent to you when they are available.
To register for the booth, please fill out our Signing Booth Request Form.
