One of the World’s Greatest Book Fairs Kicks Off Today in Frankfurt

FrankfurtIt’s become an enormous annual tradition: The massive Frankfurt Book Fair kicks off today, running through October 12, and welcoming upwards of a quarter-million book industry guests from all around the world. From self-publishing authors to famous authors to agents, talent scouts and publishing giants, anyone and everyone is drawn to this massive, annual international event.

The Frankfurt International Book Fair is by far the largest and most important book fair in the world. While other international book events could exceed Frankfurt’s 250,000-plus attendance, the multi-hall, mile-long fairground in Frankfurt hosts the largest contingent of publishing professionals of any book fair anywhere, bar none.

The Frankfurt Book Fair is a meeting place for the industry’s experts: publishers, booksellers, agents, film producers and, of course, authors just like you. With more than 7,300 exhibitors from 100 countries, upward of 250,000 visitors and more than 10,000 journalists, it is the most important marketplace for books, media, rights and licenses worldwide.

The Frankfurt International Book Fair is held in mid-October annually at the Frankfurt Fair in Frankfurt, Germany. While it’s too late to get in on this year’s event, slated for October 8 through 12, we can help you get your existing and as-yet-unpublished books ready by next summer — plenty of time to take part in the 2015 Frankfurt International Book Fair!

Remember, you can save 25% on four major book events throughout the year (London, BEA, Beijing, Frankfurt) with our Global Book Tour marketing package.

Attention Children’s Self-Publishing Authors: Is Your Book Eligible for Bologna?

Is your book right for Bologna?

Considerations:

Attending international book fairs personally is often cost-prohibitive for self-publishing writers when you factor in expenses such as airfare, hotel, food, and transportation. And those are just the costs of going international. Then there are the costs of the exhibit itself, like the exhibition fees, the exhibition stand, and the “giveaways” (often called “freebies” or “schwag.”)

Advantages:

But book fairs are also the place where self-published authors can “be discovered.” Outskirts Press helps its authors place their books at 5 international book fairs for a reasonable cost.

The Bologna Children’s Book Fair is the world’s leading book fair focusing solely on children’s publishing with a focus on the sale of rights and international co-productions. To increase your chances for success, your book must have full color illustrations inside the book to participate. Therefore, only our Pearl Full Color books are eligible.

The Bologna Children’s Book Fair occurs in March in Italy and hosts over 1,400 international exhibitors and may be instrumental in forging industry connections or negotiating agreements or licenses for your work.

When you order the Bologna Children’s Book Fair from the Marketing Options Screen of your Author’s Center your book will receive valuable, face-out exposure on an exclusive shelf with other Outskirts Press titles and a representative will be on-hand to personally answer questions about your book. Outskirts Press will provide the necessary copies of the book and all the necessary contact information for both the author and publisher, so interested parties can make further contact, during or after the fair. All inquiries Outskirts Press receives about your book will be forwarded directly to you for personal follow-up.

If you are a published Children’s book author with Outskirts Press and interested in exhibiting your book with the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, you can register for this event conveniently from your author’s center Marketing Options screen. Space is limited and filled on a first-come, first served basis. Due to the specific requirements of Bologna, this event is not a part of our Global Book Tour package and must be registered for separately if you are interested.

The deadline for submitting your book to the book fair is this Friday, January 10, 2014.
