2015 Guidelines for Author Selection


GUIDELINES FOR AUTHOR SELECTION 
2015 KENTUCKY BOOK FAIR

 

The 34th annual KY BOOK FAIR (KBF) will be held on Saturday, November 14 at the Frankfort Convention Center.  Children’s Day at the Book Fair will be Friday, November 13.  Author attendance at the KBF events is by invitation only.  The author selection committee will choose authors and titles from those submitted to us no later than June 30, 2015  (The date has been extended.) All titles submitted must be in publication by late October 2015 to allow us to procure and sell them at the event.  To submit your title(s), please send two copies of the book (or manuscript, if in pre-production) to Kentucky Book Fair, P.O. Box 715, Frankfort, KY 40602.  Please include with the submission your mailing address, phone number, and email address plus the retail price of book.

All submitted material becomes property of the KBF and will not be returned to the author.  Each title will be reviewed and judged individually.  Please be aware that the committee does give deference to books that have been published since our last event, those titles either written by Kentucky authors or former Kentuckians, and those titles that have a clear Kentucky connection. 

If the books are Print on Demand (POD), the author will be responsible for supplying the books for the event.  The KBF will pay the author 60 percent of the agreed upon retail price of the title for each copy sold during the event.  For books that are not POD, the KBF will procure them from the publisher.  However, for this to occur, the titles must be obtained on a returnable basis with no prepayment required and at least a 40% discounted rate.  Otherwise, the author will be requested to provide the books for the event as described with the POD titles. 

If you need anything further, please call Adell Kemper at 502-545-2080 or email her at adell_pk@hotmail.com.
