Abbie (acauthors) Earlier this year, I hosted my first Virtual Book Fair. It was a test run to see what did and didn't work, and I was pleased to get lots of positive feedback. I've looked over advice on how to improve, and I'm organizing another one for November! Submission call for The Virtual Book Fair is open until August 20!

This year’s virtual book fair will be from November 12- November 20th and will host 10-20 books from each of the following genres:

Paranormal/ Fantasy
Science Fiction
Historical Fiction
Literary Fiction
Young Readers
Short stories
Seasonal stories

Amazon link must include a sample of your book! Submissions will be filtered through beta readers and selected based on writing skill, content. formatting, and overall appearance. Any submissions that do not have a sample will automatically be deleted!!

The main event will host at the Little Book Nook ( and at the following Facebook page: Both of these pages will direct guests to participating author booths which MUST be featured on a blog or webpage or Facebook page.

The book fair will feature several games with gift card prizes. Two of these games require author booth participation, but these will be on a volunteer basis. I’ll explain these games in detail later on. If you decide to participate, you’ll be required to include the information in your booth set-up.
