Local and Independent Author Events

Local and Independent Author Event Guidelines

BookHampton fully supports local and independent authors and takes pride in their success. We understand the challenges of producing effective events and since our space is in such demand, we host multi-author events for our local authors to ensure strong attendance and increased outreach.

If you would like to be considered for one of our Local and Independent Author events, please complete the application form located below and provide the following information:

  • A short summary of the book, along with the publisher name, ISBN, retail price, and date of publication. Please include a review copy of your book with a self-addressed, postage-prepaid envelope so that we can return the book. If no envelope is provided, we will not return the copy of the book.

  • Any information regarding your marketing and publicity plans and any events you have already had (including attendance and sales figures).

  • A realistic estimate of how many people you expect will attend your event and if you have a local following that you believe will attend the event.

Your request should be marked “Local Author Event Request” and dropped off at the store or mailed to 41 Main Street, East Hampton, NY 11937.

You will receive a reply up to 90 days from the date we receive your request.

A Local and Independent Author event may include up to but no more than six (6) authors.
