Author Events

The demand for Author Events at our bookstore has grown as word spreads of who we are and what we offer here at Spellbound. We are so grateful for this growth and hope that it continues in the future, however we are not able to fulfill all requests for Author Events. Therefore, we have come up with a process for future Author Events that will satisfy most requests:

Local Author Events

We have two options for Local Author events:

Meet & Greets

During a Meet & Greet, Authors are set up with a table and chair inside of our store for one hour.  Guests can drop by during this time to meet the Author and purchase books. Book sales during your Meet & Greet will be through our POS system and proceeds will be split between Spellbound and the Author, with the Author receiving 60% of the sale proceeds. Sign-ups are required in advance. Click here to apply for a Meet & Greet.

Conversation with an Author & Book Signing

These are events we host in-store where a Staff member interviews the author in a short Q&A, members of the audience can ask questions after the discussion, and there is a book signing at the end. We will take photos of the event and post it on our Instagram and Facebook pages. For these events we will prioritize Local Authors who are part of our Book Consignment Program. The Staff will select 1-2 books each month from our Local Authors Shelf to read (we will choose genres that appeal the most to our Customers). If there is a particular book we enjoy, we will reach out to that Author to set up an Author Event at Spellbound. If you'd like to host your own Book Launch, Author Q&A, or Book Signing, scroll down to Private Local Author Events.

Private Author Events

If you are not chosen for an Author Event with us due to limited availability, location, not being part of our Consignment Program, etc., you can still host a Personal Book Club, Book Launch, Author Q&A, and/or other Author Event by opting to reserve our store for a Private Author Event

Private Author Events are perfect for indie authors who want to host an event for their book(s). These private events are completely managed and marketed by you, however we have some resources to help you! Here's how it works:

We have limited availability so we recommend that you book your Private Author Event at least 2 months in advance. To learn more about Event Requests and submit the request form, click on the link below.
