Library Author Showcase Application
The Loveland Public Library will be sponsoring a Local Authors Showcase on Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017 from 8:30am-5:00pm.

This event will include presentations on marketing, webpage creation and publishing, as well as the opportunity for authors to interact with and sell their books to the public. Authors must bring their own books to sell and will be responsible for all sales (types of currency accepted, tax, etc.) Books must published by 2013 or later. Participating authors must provide the library with 10 email addresses to be used to email an invitation to the Author Showcase. Authors must live in Northern Colorado. This excludes the Boulder/Louisville/Lafayette and the Metro Denver area.

Loveland Public Library will publicize this event through various channels (posters, press releases, email blasts, etc.) The library will provide programming, tables, refreshments and library staff to help with the event. There will be no cost for authors or those attending this event, but the library would like a donated copy of your book for our Local Authors Collection.
