Our Book Fair at the Thompson Center


We are a talented group of Black Chicago Authors who have banded together to form a network to highlight our work. Our goal is to bring our novels and literary publications to the forefront for the reading public.

We are dedicated to being a Chicago Renaissance for both urban literature and fiction/non-fiction in general.

From romance to comedy; children to fantasy; history and culture to inspirational and religious; we know that we can fulfill whatever form of literary works your mind desires.

Good Day Fellow Authors,

Looking for a great place to sell books? HURRY and grab a table at one or both of these events. The Michigan International Books Festival takes place October 29th through 31st at the prestigious Laurel Park Place Mall in Livonia, Michigan. It's an upscale fully enclosed mall with 15,000 daily shoppers looking to make purchases. This mall is anchored by Von Maur and Parisians department stores, both of which caters to an affluent consumer. Join Actress and Author Victoria Rowell as she sells and signs her book, "Secrets of a Soap Opera Diva."

The International Urban Book Festival, Detroit is the first book event of its kind in the area. Detroit and its suburbs combine to place the buying power of more than three million African Americans consumers in the front of your author's table. The Northland Mall is the perfect venue for this inaugural event. This enclosed mall has more than 2.5 million square feet of retail space with anchor stores Macy's and Target. 10,000 plus daily shoppers walk through Northland's doors looking to shop and support their community. November 5th through 7th are the dates for our festival and the beginning of the all important Holiday Shopping Season. What better time to place your books in the faces of potential purchasers?

Why a shopping mall? Simple; any author who has returned from an outdoor festival with soggy inventory will agree that a place where there can be no rain out is perfect. Top that with current the indigenous shoppers and you've hit the jackpot.

Be an author/vendor amongst the many attendees looking to buy what you have to sell, BOOKS. We will have literary workshops, lectures, conferences, panel discussions and classes. Everything from how to self publish your manuscript to eBook conversions. Did I mention celebrity authors? Yes, expect well known authors to be there selling and signing their books and greeting shoppers.

Author tables are only $225 for each weekend. Space is limited so don't delay. Log onto and choose the festival that you would like to attend. Click the link to download the "Author Application" fill it in with your isbn's, contact information and you'll be on your way. We even made it convenient to pay the fees right on our websites. We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover and PayPal. Remember spaces are limited, so reserve your table now.
