June 24, 2013,
Or should I say, Buongiorno, Bonjour, Buenas Dias, Guten Abend, Shalom, Hi y’all…,
Travel is the theme of the Friends of Deltona Library’s upcoming 3rd annual Authors Book Fair. “Let Your Imagination Take You Away” is our tag line.
You are invited to participate in this exciting event scheduled for:
Saturday, September 28, 2013 from 10-4 pm.
We ask for you to join in the fun and dress in the attire of your book’s setting! Decorate your table to make the patrons feel as if they have stepped into your characters’ world. If you are not sure of your travel theme, we are here to help you decide!
Before our doors open, you are invited to a free author workshop conducted by Donna Loader, CEO of Royal Support Services, Inc.
During the event, there will be 20 minute author speaking presentations in our adjacent room. We will have prize raffles! We will have generous sponsors handing out goodies to the attendees! We will have media coverage before and during the event!
You and a guest will be invited to attend our free cocktail reception with no-host bar at Ruby Tuesday’s at 1212 Saxon Blvd., Orange City, Fl. 32763.
Tables cost $50 for a full 6 ft table or $25 for a shared table.
The optional 20 minute author speaking slots are $25.
To have your short-story, children’s, or poetry read by one of our invited VIP guests, we ask for a suggested donation of $25 to be made our organization. It would be totally cool to have your book read by one of our guest VIPs!!
The application deadline to attend this event is July 31, 2013. However, if space remains, we may accept some authors who “missed the boat.”
If you cannot physically attend the event, but still want us to promote your book by displaying your flyers and contact information, the fee is $25 to be on our “Gone Fishin” table.
Please review the attachments and mail the signed two page form and a copy of each book title you plan to sell at the event to the address listed at the bottom of the application. Your payment may be made through the mail along with the application or electronically through PayPal.
We are looking forward to seeing you there… with beret, and all!
Aloha, Bon Voyage, Ciao, Sayonara, Auf Wiedersehen, May the Force Be With You,
