For the second year in a row, the Authors & Books Festival is co-hosted by the Downtown Naples Association and the Naples Press Club to bring the prestige that is 5th Avenue shopping to book sellers.
If you don't already have a signing lined up at a local B&N Saturday, April 9, then sign up to be one of the literary guests at this destination event. You could be selling dozens of your latest and greatest to a new audience along the fragrant and historied 5th Avenue in downtown Naples, Florida, where trendy shoppers and high-season visitors haven't let the economic crunch wreck their spending style.
Visit www.AuthorsAndBooksFestival.org and click on the "register now" tab in the Authors & Books Festival box to sign up. But don't wait too long! The sooner you grab a three-hour time slot with one of the 5th Avenue merchants, the better your chances of being included.
While visiting the www.AuthorsAndBooksFestival.org site, check out the mid-February deadline for the Writers' Contest and read about the excellent curriculum the conference has to offer both newbie and established writers and journalists. It's a weekend packed with business and inspiration.
If you need overnight accommodations, the luxurious Inn on Fifth has graciously agreed to offer discounted rates to attendees of the conference. Like all things along 5th Avenue, it comes with excellent marketing and promotion at www.innonfifth.com.
