AUTHOR FAQs

Q: How much space will I have?
A: Approximately 10 ft. x 10 ft. Participants will be provided with one (1) 8 ft. long table and one (1) chair. Also, one author = one space/application. Co-authors of the same book may share the same space, but otherwise, each author must reserve his or her own space.

Q: How many books should I bring?
A: Although we cannot guarantee sales, many authors sell anywhere from 10-20 books during the festival. A safe number would be 25.

Q: What besides books should I bring?
A: Since one of the main objectives of BookFest is to help our authors promote themselves, we encourage you to bring business cards, flyers, free giveaways, etc…anything that can help you make connections and build an audience.  Since we will be refunding a registration fee for the author with the best decorated table, you should also bring whatever you need to make your space as pleasing to the eye as possible. And don’t forget to bring a chair, too.

Q: How many people attend the festival?
A: On average anywhere from 2,000-4,000, depending on the weather.

Q: Do I have to provide my own tent?
A: No. Authors are set up inside our Author Tent, which is a large, circus-type tent with sidewalls to protect you and your books/marketing materials from the weather.

Q: How much promotion does the BookFest Committee do?
A: Although we do our best to promote the festival through social media, press releases, paid advertisements, flyers, and outdoor advertising, we highly encourage the participating authors to promote the festival as much as possible through their own channels.

Q: Will food and/or water be provided?
A: Although we are not able to supply food and/or water to our participants, representatives from our local restaurants will be coming around to take your lunch order if you are interested. Otherwise, please remember to bring along food, water, and snacks for the day.
