Thank you for your interest in hosting a house party for Cradles of the Reich. I’m honored that you would invite me into your home and introduce me to your friends.
To have a great event, I’ve outlined the roles of the host and author, so everyone understands what to expect and is pleased with the outcome.
As the host, please invite as many friends as you feel comfortable having in your home, community room, or backyard. Because of the time involved in preparing for and attending house parties, I ask the host to commit to selling a minimum of 25 books at the event. Some hosts choose to simply purchase books for their guests as gifts, or invite an independent bookseller or Barnes & Noble to host a sales table. Others may choose to make the event a fundraiser and set the ticket price to include a book and donation to the nonprofit organization of their choice.
I will work with whatever format the host deems appropriate. I can do a short talk, longer PowerPoint presentation, or simply meet and greet guests. Of course, I’m open to other suggestions as well. Invitations, RSVPs, and refreshments are managed by the host.
I’m looking forward to attending your house party!
Call your favorite independent bookseller or Barnes & Noble to attend your event and sell books – or have Adventures By the Book ship books to your home prior to the event!
