So I am quasi-breaking my own rule here: Reposting someone else’s content is NOT blogging. However, in this case, the someone else’s material I am borrowing is my own. It’s the post I wrote Saturday for the Phoenix Publishing & Book Promotion blog, which I maintain for the Meetup group of the same name.

Why am I “cheating”? Because it’s a comprehensive post about the tools you may want to consider packing the next time you get ready to participate in a book festival or other similar selling opportunity as a vendor. The post after this one will be my review of the four recent book festivals I attended.

The Power of the Group: Your Book Festival Vendor Kit

by Laura Orsini

Two other members of the Phoenix Publishing & Book Promotion Meetup are in Kingman, Arizona, with me this weekend for the KABAM Festival (Kingman Area Books Are Magic). Beth Kozan is the author of ADOPTION: More than by Chance, and David Medansky has authored a number of books about craps, including Greatest Craps Guru in the World.

To make the most of our experience this weekend, I planned ahead. Here are the tools I’ve packed in my Book Festival Vendor Kit.
