SPAWN returns to the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books
April 18 & 19 on the USC campus
Attracting more than 150,000 book lovers, the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books is the single best place to sell your books to one of America’s largest book-buying market.
Small publishers and indie author members can gain exposure by becoming part of the SPAWN booth at the Festival. Again this year, SPAWN will promote its booth with a series of press releases highlighting members who will be in the booth each day.
Do authors sell many books at the festival? Some sell boxes of books.
Almost everyone makes valuable contacts that lead to future sales—sign up for gigs on radio talk shows or receive invitations for book signings or presentations, set up interviews with the press, meet educators who’d like to get authors’ children’s books into schools, find publishers for their next projects, discover distributors for specific types of books, and more. One member connected with someone who filmed a documentary based on his military book. The documentary still plays on the Military Channel. Two years ago a member was interviewed on Saturday about his book and it ran in the Sunday edition of the LA Times.
Want to get your book(s) in front of this audience?
Option One: Have a tabletop display in the SPAWN booth plus sell your book(s)
Space is limited and strictly on a first come, first-served basis, which includes participation in our booth handouts.
Member booth fee is $285 for one day or $550 for two days
Non-member fee is $360 for one day or $675 for two days.
Option Two: Have a book on display in the SPAWN booth
If you can’t make it personally to Los Angeles, why not have a copy of your book on display in the booth? Have bookmarks or postcards for attendees to take home and purchase online.
SPAWN will feature your book(s) in the booth and in the handout. Cost is $85.
