Payson Book Festival 2018 Co-op Book Display
Story Monster is returning to the Payson Book Festival on Saturday, July 21, 2018. The festival, brought to you by the Rim Country District of Arizona Professional Writers (APW) and Majestic Rim Retirement Living, is a family-friendly event where Arizona authors and publishers and readers come together. Include your book to sell and 100 flyers, coloring sheets, stickers, pencils, or bookmarks to give away as part of Story Monsters LLC's co-op book display and Greenie Bag giveaways. We can even do the printing of your flyers for you!
THE IMPORTANT DETAILS
For $99.00 for each book you enter as a co-op partner at the Payson Book Festival, you will receive:
- Your book for sale at the Story Monsters LLC booth at the event. Please send us up to 5 copies of your book. You will earn 80% of profits for every book sold at the event. A check will be mailed to you after the event for any books sold. Books will not be returned and any unsold books will be offered for review or donated on your behalf to a 501(c)(3) organization that supports children or literacy.

- Consideration for possible review of your book.
- A potential increase in book sales after the event at places such as Amazon or the author's website.

Here's What Authors Are Saying About Participating in Our Co-Op Displays ...
“I have done co-op events with Story Monsters twice now, and have been quite happy with the results. The cost is affordable, the visibility of my title — both at the event and online — seems to be good, and the staff has been most helpful and supportive both times. Thank you for making participation in these events both easy and effective.”
— Dorothea Jensen, Award-winning author of A Buss from Lafayette
“... my coauthor and I signed up for Linda’s [Story Monsters LLC's] creative co-op marketing packages. Her organization of these events and her followup show her knowledge, skills, and nearly 30 years of publishing and marketing experience.
Linda knows what she’s doing, but she doesn’t perform her magic on her own. She has gathered a marvelous team of professionals to assist her. I wholeheartedly endorse Story Monsters, LLC, and look forward to a long relationship with Linda and her team as I continue to write my stories.”
