Join this list of bookstores and choose from this list of events to present to your customers. Stores are handling the events as they would handle their own virtual events -- it is left up to the stor. Some are selling the book as the ticket to attend. Some are selling tickets for a flat rate that can then be used as a credit towards the book or any purchase from the store. Each store determines how they want to use the events to assist in selling more books. It is our hope that we are offering stores an easy way to sell books without the headache of managing a new tool.
The RMW Lee Smith (Blue Marlin) and RMW Ruthie Lindsay (There I Am) events are now available to view online. All SIBA member stores are invited to link, post, or embed them on your websites, in your newsletters, or your social media feeds, and to include your own store branding and purchase links:
