Indie Bookseller Deathmatch: Singulus Books vs. The Strand

Obviously, I’m going to lose.

I just hope to pick off a few (like 100) of their customers.


Singulus Books is open today, 10/25, from 9:30am to 6:00pm.

Location: A sidewalk near The Strand Book Store in Union Square

828 Broadway, New York, NY 10003

Near the world famous Zabar’s,

If you’re in the area, please visit. Perhaps buy my book, chat, etc.

Maybe offer to cover my table for a few minutes so I can take a bathroom break.

It’s the least you can do.

And I’m open. Singulus Books at the Brooklyn Book Festival


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.

Brooklyn Book Festival





The Brooklyn Book Festival ) is on 9/21/14, with bookend events from 9/15 to 9/21.

Here’s the official description:

“The Brooklyn Book Festival, on Sunday, September 21, 2014, is a huge, free public event presenting an array of literary stars and emerging authors who represent the exciting world of literature today. One of America’s premier literary and literacy events, this hip, smart, diverse gathering attracts thousands of booklovers of all ages. The festival is organized around themed readings and devoted to timely and lively panel discussions. The inclusion of top national and international authors and new partners has expanded the festival’s reach while continuing to celebrate and enhance Brooklyn’s contemporary and historic literary reputation.”

Singulus Books and I will have a table there, guerrilla style of course. The prep work is done: have my Square credit card reader, banners, promotional items, folding table and chair, and 100 copies of my novel, Dream Brother. Should be a great event. If you are there, please stop by and say hello.
