    Smile Accepting author submissions for virtual book fair

    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.

    Your booth MUST include the following information:

    brief author bio
    brief synopsis of book

    Optional information might include:
    Giveaway set-up
    Author interview
    Main character interview (questions provided by the book fair)
    Villain interview (questions provided by the book fair)
    Q&A session
    Blog trivia answers (question provided by book fair)
    Choose your own adventure paragraphs (provided by book fair)

    There is a $2 booth entrance fee to help cover the cost of gift cards and marketing.

    Please review the following rules before submitting your book:

    * Ebook must be available on Amazon
    * Ebook must be less than $2.99 at the time of event.
