Big day tomorrow…

So, tomorrow’s the big day. Just checked the projected attendance for this year’s Brooklyn Book Festival. Approximately 40,000 visitors.

(Gulp, heart rate increases)

As an unofficial vendor bum-rushing the event, I am trying to decide where to set up the Singulus Books table.


 I’m thinking near the subway entrances, charging stations, or food trucks.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Leave a comment.




Practicing the setup / breakdown:

Singulus Books – before



Singulus Books (stocked with 100 paperbacks) – after

  1. My first thought on food trucks is that people who are hungry might be grumpy, haha.

    Best of luck! I always love checking up on your blog to see how things are going. It’s great inspiration for my future self (still in the writing process).

  2. Fingers and toes all crossed for you. Eyes would be also, but it makes navigating a bit difficult. I wish that i could offer a definitive ‘best spot’ suggestion but all I can come up with is that you don’t neglect the idea of somewhere near the porta-potties. Not adjacent, just in the most logical path to and from.

  3. Just want to admire your courage! I often have this fantasy (when we are travelling anywhere) of pulling over somewhere in a high traffic zone (pedestrians – not cars), setting up a card table, throwing my books on it, plopping down on a lawn chair and taking my chances. I love the idea of being a non-official vendor. Best of luck.

  4. I would say near an area where people will be “mingling” or forced to stand in one spot. That in my mind would be near food trucks/stands.
    Best of luck, Brian!!!!

  5. Good luck, and best wishes. As noted above, I wouldn’t even know where to suggest. However, one thing does come to mind, especially with the laptop in tow – make sure you have some type of covering! Even if things don’t get wet, being out of the sun will be a blessing.


  6. I wish you all the luck!!! How exciting!!! Have fun and enjoy this adventure!!! I am at a fair her in our capital next weekend for selling my book and giving lecutures. So I feel with you!!!
