Authors, Writers and Novelists,

Would you like more exposure for your book? Do you want to go to those always "Talked About" tradeshows but know you just cannot afford them? Are you aware of how much networking can help boost your sales?

What would you pay to attend the following events?

South Carolina Book Festival in Columbia S.C. $375
American Library Association Convention in Washington D.C. $2,200
Book Expo America in New York City $4,500
Texas Book Festival in Houston SOLD OUT
Baltimore Book Festival in Maryland $450
Miami Book Festival in Sunny Florida $600

How about $375 for all of these plus twenty-four more. The Author Collective is here to help you sell your work. We exhibit at these shows and others with one goal in mind... SELL BOOKS!
