August 22, 2008


This is an all-call to anyone who wants to sell some books Labor Day weekend — and best of all it does not cost anything!!!!!!

The new Flying Star Cafe in Bernalillo will have its Grand Opening Labor Day weekend in Bernalillo August 30, 31 and September 1, 2008. The New Mexico Book Co-op is having a Book Fair/Store to celebrate the New Mexico Wine Festival and the opening of Flying Star Cafe in Bernalillo. The new Flying Star Cafe is located directly across the street from the NM Wine Festival and they anticipate 30,000 people coming, many walking down from the Road Runner station which is a block behind the new Flying Star Cafe. Flying Star Café has given us a store front next to the café and we will feature loads of local books.

This event does not cost you anything!!!
And anyone who has a book can participate!!!
We have a sales staff for this event so you do not need to even be there!

The space that Flying Star Café has given us is even bigger than we thought so we are taking any and all books. If you want to participate here is what you do:
1. bring 10 copies (only 10 and no more) on Friday August 29 between 9am and 11am, the space is locked so do not come before or after these times as there is no place to leave them except in the space when it is open.
2. all books must have a price on them — and we suggest that books be at a discount to help things sell. Take all books out of shrink wrap so people can browse through them.
3. bring an invoice with your name, phone, address and the title and sales price of your books and quantity. You will get 100% of the sales price minus a fee for any sales by credit card (about 4%)
4. if you have any blowups or posters of your book cover (minimum of 11x17) please bring them to help decorate the space.
5. pick up all your books on Monday Sept 1 between 4:30pm and 6:30pm. Books not picked up at these times may not get returned.

The space is located at 240 South Camino del Pueblo in Bernalillo (Main St) across from the San Lorenzo Church and the NM Wine Festival grounds. It is also right next to the new Flying Star Café and the Obama headquarters. The space is right in front of the marquee sign for the Las Huertas Plaza

There will also be 25 book signings over the three days — all the time slots are filled at this time. Check out the schedule of signings at
