Urgent Message for Authors Attending Bouchercon
Again, there is a record number of authors coming to Bouchercon 2017!
Each year some authors arrive and expect automatically they will find their books for sale. If you rely on luck this may even happen. But if you want to be sure the booksellers carry your newest book, and maybe some backlist titles, it is imperative you follow the suggestions below.
Whether you are with a major publisher, a small publisher, or an indie publisher, you need to:
- Contact our book sellers to find out if they carry books from your publisher
- Let them know the titles you would like to see them carry
- Arrange a consignment deal with those willing to take consignment
- If you work out a consignment arrangement, you’ll have to bring your books to the convention for the dealers you have deals with
- Check back here periodically to get names of new book sellers as they sign up to attend
Our booksellers are all independent bookstores, most of whom can’t afford to carry stock that can’t be returned. More and more authors are publishing with smaller presses that can’t take returns, so for both, the consignment option is crucial.
If you follow this method we hope to make you happy, not surprised and disappointed.
See you in Toronto!
