The American Library Association Annual Conference brings in over 16,000 librarians and others in the library industry. For an Indie Author to have an opportunity to have your book on display and possibly reviewed for purchase for a library is a great opportunity.
We have participated in the ALA Midwinter event for 3 years with various success. There is no guarantee your book will be purchased, but if you don’t put the book out for people to learn about it, then it will never get purchased or picked up for review. This is just one of the many ways to let librarians know about your book.
If you would like to have your book on display, please complete the form and submit payment. We will confirm with you upon receipt and send you information on where to ship the book in order for us to have it on display.
We are considering the possibility of opening up table time for authors to be present to promote their book during the event. This will only be open to authors who have signed up for this program. More information will be available at a later date.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at TxAuthors@live.com.
Thanks you for your consideration and time.

Table times allow authors to sell and market their books during the annual Texas Book Festival held on October 26-27, 2018 in Austin, Texas. Any book sales during your table time is YOUR money. TxAuthors does not take any additional fees other then your table time fee.
If you are interested in a table time, please email Alan first before paying for the time. There is very limited spots.

Since 2014, TxAuthors & DEAR Texas has had a presence at the annual Texas Library Conference. This event has gained our membership great exposure in Texas. Last year one of our members gave away 1,000 copies of their book which drew nice crowds to our space. This resulted in the best book sales for the authors that attended the event.
In 2018 & 2019, we plan to distribute 1,000 copies of the Short Stories by Texas Authors Vol 3 during the event. We anticipate that the authors will have great opportunity to promote their books and make sales.
The table time is good for a 2 Hour period. We will consider selling more then a 2 hour window time to any one author or publishing group. Please contact Alan directly to arrange this.
