Book Signing Event for Florida Authors

I belong to a group of Florida authors who go on book signings together, usually coordinated by Tiva Wallon. I just joined and haven't been on one yet but I will! Anyway, they have a big event planned and Tiva said it was okay to post in case any other authors want to get in on it. Please read her email below. You would contact Tiva. I won't be able to make this one:(

Hi there! Today I spoke to the manager at the USA Flea Market. She was very excited about our event, very excited. She suggested the 2nd Saturday and or Sunday of the month as they have car shows and it's the busiest time of the month. This is what she is offering us. The tables are 4 x 8 and run $10.00 per table. I figure 2 to 3 authors per table, unless you want a table all to yourself. (Each of us will split the cost) You'll have to let me know. The price is for each day, each table. The spot is located on their Main Street, the busiest spot in the place. Usually they charge a bundle to advertise things on the huge electronic sign, ($100.00 per day) but she said she wouldn't charge us for this. Pretty cool, huh? And the thing is huge! I would say about as big as the side of a barn. All we have to bring is our books, chairs and a table cloth. They open at 9AM and close at 4PM both days so you can choose what time you want to be there.

So all I need from you is a yes or a no if you want to attend and which day or both days. You can sell your books, CD's what ever. All the sales are yours to keep. (You'll need to bring cash to make change or you can even accept a check from a customer) You just have to pay your share of the table fee. Everyone is invited to attend, no matter what genre you write in everyone is welcome. If you know of another author who would like to join us, please give them my email and have them contact me. The news media will be alerted as well. I can't promise they will come see us and do a story but they might.

So if you're interested in joining us for this event, please email me back as soon as you can. Once I know who's coming, I can make up a flier which will be placed all over the Flea Market a week prior to the event. The day of the event, when you arrive I will collect your share of the table fee and give it to the manager. Or she might prefer to meet us there and collect from each of us as we arrive. I'll have to get that information from her.

This is going to be awesome! Let me know soon!

Where? Florida is a BIG state!

Oh, man, I was afraid someone was going to ask me where the flea market is. Ask Tiva, google it or go to map quest? Sorry I'm not much help. I live in Winter Haven and was going to go but had something else planned.

Debbie, are you talking about the one that's over of US 19 in Port Richey, FL? That the only USA Flea Market that I have ever heard of and that's because it's about 45 minutes or so away from me.

Debbie Wallace said...

Dani, sorry I honestly don't know. I'm not going so I haven't looked into it.
