Event Rules:

  • This event is open to WCYR and WCDR members only.
  • 10 authors per day, per store (up to 40 authors total). Spaces will be assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please register for your dates of choice below. If less than 40 authors register, the extra spaces will be assigned by random selection.
  • All authors who register must agree to stay for the full 8 hours (with breaks for lunch). Any author who registers and leaves part way through the day will not be allowed to register for future events.
  • After registration, you will receive more information about how to proceed with registering your books for consignment as well as the special discount consignment commission. This special rate was negotiated for this event and should not be shared with others.

Please register below. You may register for as many dates as you like, but you will be given only one day to begin with. If extra spaces are available, we will draw names from a hat to fill them. Event coordinators will contact you will further details.

In order to make this event a success, we are also hosting a workshop to help you put your best selling foot forward. Register for Optimizing Personal Appearances with Gary McGugan by clicking HERE. Space is limited for this workshop, so register early.
