Caffeinated Press is pleased — giddy, even — to attend this year’s Ann Arbor Book Festival. On Saturday, June 18, from noon until 5 p.m., we’ll be participating as a retail vendor during the downtown street fair. Drop by to purchase books, chat with us or hobnob with many of the region’s up-and-coming authors. Washington Street, between 4th and 5th, is blocked off for the afternoon.
Wish you could come, but can’t? That’s OK — we have a 10×10 table, so there’s plenty of space for us to schlep the self-published/small-press-published works of local authors, and to provide propaganda from our local retail and literary partners.
You have until June 12 to bring us your stuff. Here be ye details:
- For promotional materials, just bring them or drop them in the mail — but we won’t print them for you. No fee.
- For books, contact us to arrange for a drop-off time in our office. We will sign a simple consignment form. We do not assess an up-front fee, but we withhold 10 percent of the retail price for every unit sold because we will handle the payment of Michigan’s 6 percent sales tax as well as the roughly 2.7 percent credit-card interchange fees.
When the event is done, we’ll return unsold copies as well as a check for the funds due to you.
What better time to get some exposure on the East Side of the Mitten?
