Thank you for your interest in setting up an author event at Village Books. We support our community and authors through our robust events program, and we take pride in helping authors and presenters promote their work. We host more than 300 events each year and have come to understand the challenges of producing successful events. Because our events program is in such great demand, we request that all potential authors complete this questionnaire. This helps us determine if your book is a good match for our community. Village Books offers a free 15-minute consultation, $25/hour after the first 15 minutes to help answer questions and event proposals.
To ensure a successful event, Village Books expects authors and presenters to conduct their own publicity campaign by reaching out to friends, family, and the local media. The following questions will help us gauge your participation level for publicity.
Once you've completed this questionnaire, you can email your digital media kit (100-word book synopsis, 2-3 sentence bio, jpg image of book cover & jpg author image) to our Events Coordinator, Claire McElroy-Chesson, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Completion of this questionnaire does not guarantee an event at Village Books. All applicants are subject to approval by the events coordinator and staff.
