How much does it cost to attend a signing?
Our in-store Meet & Greet Events are free. However, if you want to get any books signed, (including audiobooks, movie memorabilia, e-readers, other items), the author's newest book must be purchased from Fleur Fine Books.
How do signings work?
Most authors will give a 20-30 minute talk, and then take questions from the crowd. Once the discussion portion of the event is over, if necessary we'll line customers up in small groups of ten, based on the their line number, to get their books signed.
How do I get a line number?
To get a line number, you must purchase a copy of the author's newest book from Fleur Fine Books. We start giving out line numbers on the day the author's newest book is released. You may purchase the book in person, online, or by phone. If you preorder a book, we'll pull a number for you the day the book goes on sale, but customers in the store (or on the phone) when we open that day will get the lower numbers.
Why do I have to purchase the author's new book from Fleur Fine Books?
Purchasing the book from us is the easiest way to show the publisher that they should keep sending authors to us. Book events are costly. The store has expenses, the publisher has travel and lodging to pay for, and the author is spending time away from family and writing.
How early should I arrive for a signing?
That's entirely up to you. We set up chairs an hour an a half before most events. Seating is first come, first served, and can go quickly for large events. We have plenty of standing room so if you don't get a seat, you'll still be able to see / hear the talk.
Will the author sign my earlier books?
For most events, the first time through the line the author will sign their new book and three older titles. Depending on time and the size of the crowd, well do a second round after everyone's been through the line once to get additional titles signed. A limit may be imposed for authors who draw very large crowds.
Where do I park?
Please do not park in the street. We have plenty of room in our parking lot behind the store.
Can I bring food or drink to the event?
Unless provided by the store, food is not permitted at events. We do allow beverages, but ask that it has a lid, and that you throw away the empty cup or bottle instead of leaving it on the floor under the chair. If there is a spill, please let a staff member know immediately.
I can't make it to an event, can I still get a book signed?
YES! Give us a call, stop in, or order online and we'll get a book signed or personalized for you. We can even ship it.
Can I mail in books to get signed?
We'll get THREE books that you send signed for every ONE copy of the new book purchased from us. Restrictions may be imposed for authors who draw large crowds. Even if you've already talked to a staff member about sending books, please include a note in the box detailing how many copies of the new book you would like to purchase, how would you like them signed, and your contact information.
