Anna Faversham (annafaversham) | 1183 comments How do Brits get their physical books over to you, Carole? Ordinary post or can the author order in the UK and the US prints it and sends to you.

Sorry, thicko me again. I've just today received the first author copy of my time travel romance. So this is all new to me.

What opportunities you put before us!

D.J. Cooper | 1028 comments I was going to ask that. I’ve finally got a book I can put in but don’t know what the process would be.

Order it the cheapest way you can- once you email me- to get on the list- I will send Travis's address in LA. You will ship directly to him.

D.J. Cooper | 1028 comments I have emailed. Thanks for doing this again.

Happy to share my resources, Debz

Anita Dickason (anitadickason) | 217 comments What I have done is set up an account on Amazon in both the UK and Canada. I order the book and have it shipped to the local individual. Even though I am paying full price for the book, I more than make it up in the savings on shipping. If you are overseas, consider setting up an account on the US Amazon site, and ship the book(s) direct to Travis.

Carole--are you accepting bookmarks again?

I usually put out books at the Sony Show- If anyone wants their books there- let me know. I do a giveaway based on the theme of their show- Last year was tea- so I did a teacup and a teabag and a good book.

The year before was a day at the beach- so I did beach reads- I don't know what theme they have yet- but a lot of employees from Sony in LA goes to the show and usually stop by our booth. I know the books are enjoyed- because I did a different party in March and many Sony guests came up to me and told me how much they love the books. No pressure- I'm just saying. I'll be having a bunch of mine and Michael's there.

Anita Dickason (anitadickason) | 217 comments What is the date of the Sony show? I don't see it on the list.

My question, as well.

We didn't put the Sony Show on the list. We don't make a brochure for that- We just send books to go in the booth to be given away.

If anyone wants to send their books- email me and I'll send Travis's address. We'll send him a note that those books are for the Sony show.

M.J. Woods (mjwoodsbooks) | 41 comments Carole, if we wanted to do physical books, how many are we talking that we'd be required provide?

This seems like an exciting promotion and I'd love to be included if the cost is feasible for me.

Thanks!

Sure- if you can't afford to send books- I'll include you on the sheet. We send out about four different books for each bag along with treats. Publisher's Weekly and now Forward Review will include an issue in there as well.

It's prestigious and exciting. People attending the events look forward to our swag bag. I don't know if it ever brought anyone a sale, but wouldn't you want your book to be the one in someone's hands when a paparazzi snaps a picture?

Carole, are children's books appropriate at the Sony Show?


message 16: by Carole (new)

Carole P. Roman | 4639 comments Mod
Yes. You can send those.

Hello everyone I just joined this group. Sounds exciting!
When do books have to be sent for Sony Show and when is deadline?

The Sony show is in October- I don't have a date or theme yet. But you can send them out to be stored for it.

Anyone who send will be put in the award bag brochure- please send the info that Brit needs to cnbbook@gmail.com. She'll be making next year's sheet up next week and when it's done- it's done. It take her about four days to produce one of these sheets.

Kimberly Hockaday | 79 comments Hi. Sounds like a great opportunity. Are poetry books acceptable? And when do the books need to be sent? I live in the U.S. and if I am able to mail the book it would have to be shipped from Amazon and not directly from me.
