The Colorado Authors’ League Co-Op Book Booth, which sold more than 300 books at last year’s Denver Junior League Holiday Mart, is now accepting registration for this year’s booth from non-members who can join 30 CAL authors already signed up. Registration ($100 for members / $150 for non-members) can be found on the CAL website by clicking here. Non-members who apply for membership in CAL and are approved will receive a $50 refund and all CAL benefits through May, 2015.
The Holiday Mart, the area’s traditional kickoff to the holiday shopping season, will be held November 14th to 16th in the Marriott Tech Center.
With the success of last year’s sale, CAL will not charge authors a commission this year. CAL volunteers will handle all transactions, including collecting tax, leaving authors free to meet and sign their books for shoppers. CAL increased the size of this year’s book booth and all authors have the opportunity to sign books on all three days. Holiday Mart attracts literally thousands of shoppers each year who swarm the aisles of crafts and merchandise. Last year the CAL booth was one of only two booths offering books.
In addition, registration assures all authors of having their books displayed for shoppers throughout the 21 hours of Holiday Mart in the booth’s hands-on book rack, plus promotion signage. Authors are encouraged to sign up soon for the remaining slots as information about how they will reserve their choice of book signing times will be sent to authors at the end of October.
Sign up now for one of the remaining author table positions.
