Now that it’s officially Fall, it’s time to let you in on some of the exciting things we have coming up this month. Some big things are on the horizon for Between the Lines, and we just can’t help but share them!
First and foremost, we are currently accepting submissions. If you’ve got a manuscript you’d like us to read, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d be happy to take a look. For submissions guidelines, click here.
We are excited to be sponsors for two book festivals this month.
Held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, this book festival is one you won’t want to miss if you’re in the area. It’s the largest literary event in the Upper Midwest, drawing as many as 6,000 book lovers each year. This is the festival’s 18th year! Sit in on a panel…enter the raffle…visit the poetry bus. There will be plenty for kids and teens as well, so bring your young book lovers along. Between the Lines will have an exhibitor table at TCBF with a plethora of goodies, so don’t forget to come by and say hi! The festival goes from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and admission is free. And last, but not least…there will be food. Food and books = recipe for happiness! You can find out more about the festival here.
And in the not-quite-so-Upper Midwest, join us for the Cincinnati Regional Book Festival at the Duke Energy Convention Center. Books by the Banks also has free admission, a teen scene, and a kids’ corner, with activities for all ages. If you show your festival program, receipt, or bookmark at several of downtown Cincinnati’s finest restaurants, you’ll receive a discount on your lunch or dinner. The festival goes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., so you’ll have plenty of time to fit in a delightful meal while you’re in the area. See their website for a list of participating restaurants and discount offers. Our Between the Lines table for Books by the Banks will include some special giveaways, so you won’t want to miss out! Find out more about the festival here.
As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Two of our fantastic authors are breast cancer survivors, so we decided to honor them and other amazing women, we will be donating a portion of all of our October sales to breast cancer research. Additionally, stop by our table at either festival to pick up your complimentary book. You can redeem it for any ebook in our library. For ever card redeemed, BLP and WRP will donate $2.00. No purchase necessary to receive a free book. Read a book to support a good cause!
We will have more exciting Between the Lines news in the near future, so stay tuned! You can also find us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram along with our imprint, Willow River Press.
