New Mexico Book Association News

December 12, 2008


The New Mexico Book Co-op and Clear Light Publishers in Santa Fe are banding together to organize two special book selling opportunities in Santa Fe.

Clear Light Publishers has graciously offered to host two events in Santa Fe at their new Clear Light Book Gallery on West San Mateo for the Book Awards Winners & Finalists and a book Fiesta for everyone. Please read rules carefully; space is limited so act fast. Clear Light Book Gallery is located at 851 West San Mateo (next to Open Hands). They have 3,000 square feet of display space available for us.

JANUARY 31, 2009 -- Winners & Finalists Book Fiesta
On January 31, 2009, there will be an event for Winners & Finalists in the 2008 Book Awards.

FEBRUARY 21, 2009 — Book Fiesta for Everyone
On February 21, 2009, they will have a Book Fiesta for anyone.

FREE, but you must help in promotion. There will be no cost to participate in either event. If you wish to participate you must send the email addresses of at least 25 of your potential customers (who might come to the events) in the Santa Fe area (40 email addresses if you want to participate in both events) and send these addresses to The New Mexico Book Co-op will handle the publicity for the events and will send out email announcements to people to encourage people to attend.

The events will be 10am-4pm and you are asked to be there by 9:30am to set up. No tear-down is allowed before 4pm. Each participant will have 1/2 of a table (two people to a table); if you have more than 10 titles, arrangements can be made for a larger space. A participant may bring other books as well Participation will be on a first-come basis, until space is gone. Tables will be provided for both events. You don’t have to bring tables. Participants get 75% of all book sales; 25% will go to Clear Light for handling all sales. Clear Light will handle the cash register and credit card processing. Checks for sales will be sent out a week after the event. Books must be marked with price (we highly advise removable labels that are available at stores like Staples and Office Max).

Clear Light Book Gallery has just re-opened in its new location on San Mateo Street in Santa Fe and is interested in having a display of New Mexico books from the Book Award Winners and from the recent New Mexico Book Catalog. They cannot guarantee sales so they want a single copy of each winner and catalog book to display on a consignment basis. If they get interested buyers, they will order more from you. Clear Light Book Gallery features children’s books, cookbooks, Native American, Hispanic, Southwest & Holistic books, and Southwest gift items. If you are interested in participating in this display please contact Harmon Houghton at 505/989-9590.
