The 2011 International Urban Book Festival, Cleveland comes to Richmond Town Square Mall, May 13 - 15, 2011. Throughout the mall will be local television, government and sports personalities reading for 30 minutes to a group of children or students. Authors will also sell and sign their books and novels and there will be several no cost literary workshops, classes and panel discussions open to the general public. We will identify 50 Cleveland area schools whose students may have financial challenges. Also, we will through our subsidiary R2Books, donate 20 gift certificates to each school, these can then be brought to our event and redeemed for a new book. We welcome other corporations to match our gift and help us give 10,000 books annually to deserving students across the United States. Tell everyone about us by sending them to our website:

Good Day Authors,
Looking to sell more books? The Author Collective has just organized two new book festivals which are certain to help!  The 2011 Michigan Spring Book Festival happens April 15th through the 17th at Laurel Park Place Mall in Livonia, Michigan and The International Urban Book festival, Cleveland takes place May 13th through 15th at the Richmond Town Square Mall in Richmond Heights, Ohio. We have rented the entire mall for these festivals and expect to have lots of book lovers and book buyers in attendance.
There will be workshops, seminars, panel discussions, classes and lectures on many topics in the field of literature. These learning sessions will be free of charge to public and will provide insight on writing, publishing and marketing books. We will be sending invitations to patrons from the Detroit and Cleveland area school systems & libraries. R2Books and other sponsors will donate 1,000 book certificates to deserving students in each of the two cities. These certificates are good for one free book and must be redeemed at the festival. Many of the student with free book certificates and their parents, will look to purchase additional books and meet the authors in attendance.
Do you love selling at book festivals but hate the rain, cold and the wind that almost always happen during an outdoor event?  Join us for our indoor festivals which will span the entire common area of these shopping malls. Interact with the more than 10,000 shoppers who visit these malls everyday. Author applications are now available on our websites.  Click the links below or call me to reserve your table today!
Look to see you there.

Greetings Fellow Authors,

Join us November 5th thru 7th at the Northland Shopping Mall in Southfield, Michigan for the International Urban Book Festival, Detroit. A great place to sell books and teach young people the importance of reading. We have rented the entire shopping mall to get our message across to the young at risk generation. Reading is essential! Let's all encourage our youth to read at least two books per week. Let's encourage parents to make this a family mandate.

Meet and network with celebrity authors, purchasing agents from schools, libraries and major corporations plus other members of the literary community. We will hold literary workshops, panel discussions, lectures, seminars and classes on self publishing. We have 200 author tables now available, but they are certain to sell out quickly. The cost for the three day weekend is only $225. Author tables are 2' by 4' skirted with two chairs. Out of state attendees may receive discounts on hotel rooms by logging onto our website after September 2, 2010.

This is certain to be a fun filled event. Don't miss it.

Call us at (313) 446-2262 or log onto Facebook

Just a quick note: Black folks may be finally getting into sci-fi, fantasy, and sword & soul. As writers & readers, we need to take advantage of this new wave. Already, writers like L.A. Banks and others are publishing dozens of books in the spooky genres. But what makes a speculative fiction story truly afrocentric? What really appeals to us as African Americans when we mention science fiction and its cousins? I don't want a negro Superman. I want something special!
