BORDER QUEEN BOOK FESTIVAL - VENDOR SPACES GOING FAST

The next event will be Saturday, March 7, 2009 in Comanche, Oklahoma.

There will be a fee of $5.00 per author for the March 2009 event to cover the utility expenses. A limited space requires name reservations. The fee will not be required until the cutoff date: December 2008. off time. 40 aisle tables are the max. We have more than half our limit registered so far. Those that reserve a table must do so by contacting me to put their name on the list. Some authors have decided to double up but it is still the same fee per author.

Tonya Shook, event coordinator noted: "I don't know too many book festivals that offer such opportunity for author and general public, no cost to the public and very little to an author. It was a wonderful success last time but even a better one this next year due to the wonderful plans being put into effect."

Plans are to keep it simple but have lots more publicity! There is even a plan to arrange for a film of the last event to be played on regional television and cable outlets. Although not all plans are finalized, tentatively there is planned a salad bar to make the meal on Saturday delightfully delicious, healthy and vendor friendly.
