Bethany Beach Books Event Terms
We host our author events between mid-June and mid-August each year
Events are typically scheduled for 7:00pm Sunday-Friday. Alternate timing can be prearranged on an event-by-event basis but this is subject to availability and approval of our event coordinator
Our events are casual meet-and-greet events as we find this suits our customer base best and has proven to be most successful
Hosted authors are required to advertise their event with Bethany Beach Books on their website, blog, social media outlets, etc.
Promotion of purchasing on Amazon or other competitive big-box retailers are not tolerated during the event at Bethany Beach Books
Independent authors who do not already have an active Independent Author contact with BBB must fill out the program application here if their book is not available through Ingram, Baker & Taylor or another approved distributor or publisher
Please be aware that our town is very weather-dependent during the summer months and poor weather is (sadly) out of our control. Weather can effect foot traffic throughout the town.
Please be sure to read the form thoroughly as our event structure for 2019 is improving and changing from previous years!
Dates are booked on a first come basis.
