Storymakers Conference Bookstore and Author Signing
The Conference Bookstore is open for shopping during conference hours on Friday and Saturday. We encourage you to stop by, say hello to Scott and Julie who run the show, and browse books by your favorite conference faculty and presenters. After Saturday’s Closing Session, stick around for a mass Author Signing, where many of your favorite authors will be signing (and selling) their books.
Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back.John Green
BOOKSTORE RULES AND ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS
Conference Bookstore: The Conference Bookstore will carry books from Conference Faculty/Presenters, Committee members, and Whitney Finalists only. Other authors wanting to sell and/or sign books at the conference will be able to sign up for a spot in the Book Signing/Book Sale taking place from 5-7 pm on Saturday. (Please see below)
Information regarding bookstore policies and procedures will be emailed to faculty, presenters, and Whitney finalists directly. For questions, please contact Julie Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org.
AUTHOR SIGNING AND SATURDAY BOOK SALEThe below information is for authors wishing to sell and sign their books who do not already have books in the bookstore.
This year, due to multiple, yearly requests from conference attendees, we will provide a map which will guide readers to authors. To facilitate this process, we will have assigned seating which groups authors into genres.
~Only authors who are registered for the conference may reserve a table to sell books.
~Only authors that reserve a spot will be able to sell books and participate in the author signing.
A spot is not an entire table, so plan accordingly. You will be sharing the table with at least two other authors. (The tables are long, skinny ones, so this won’t be a problem.)
Authors will need to provide their own books and means to sell them: cash for change, credit card reader, etc.
NOTE: Authors are also responsible to report and pay the sales tax on their book sales even if that tax amount is zero. We will provide temporary sales tax licenses from the Utah State Tax Commission when you check in to the book signing. The sales tax form (link below) must be filled out in order to reserve a spot. More information about collecting, reporting, and paying sales tax is available HERE.
YOU MUST RESERVE YOUR TABLE BEFORE APRIL 20th. Click HERE to reserve a spot.
The room will be open an hour before the signing for you to check in and set up.
Please do not arrive before 4:00 PM.
Members of the LDStorymakers Author Guild can reserve a spot free of charge. Non-guild members will be charged a $10 fee.
An invoice will be sent to non-guild members. Once it’s paid, your spot will be reserved.
