Get Trade Show Exposure with Chanticleer

Ingram Spark

Reach more booksellers, librarians, and publishing professionals at the time and place they are deciding what books to stock on their shelves for the next selling season.

Chanticleer Collections Trade Show Representation is reserved for books earning a four or five starred review from Chanticleer Reviews, a First Place Award, or Grand Prize in the Chanticleer Writing Competitions.

The Chanticleer Collections Showcase

If your book qualifies, we invite you to register for exhibition in our Chanticleer Collections showcase at the regional bookseller trade shows we attend. We love discovering today’s best books, and we’re always looking for new ways to help our authors gain exposure and readership!

Your book displayed in the Chanticleer Collection at our vendor booth:

  • Showcases your book to crowds of bookstore buyers and librarians
  • Communicates to buyers that your book has been vetted for quality
  • Expands your market and discoverability
  • Generates book orders from the buzz and excitement of the trade show environment
  • Saves you the time, money and energy of purchasing your own trade show booth

A testimonial from Janet Oakley, Historic Novelist

Ever since I published my first novel, I have dreamed of having my books at the Pacific NW Booksellers Association trade show. My historical novels set in the NW were perfect fit, yet the cost was prohibitive for me. Thanks to Chanticleer Book Reviews, I was able to have not only my books on a table at this trade show and two others, but had someone who knew them and could pitch them to booksellers as they came by. To date, over 480 books were ordered (shortly after exhibiting with Chanticleer at PNBA) around the country. Truly a game changer for me.

Register your books

Once you reserve your book’s space in the Chanticleer Collection at a regional bookseller trade show, we will contact you with a confirmation along with instructions how to get the books to us. All books and sell sheets must be submitted on time to be included in our special Trade Show Catalogue. Use this Sample Sell Sheet on Canva as a guide for your sell sheet design.

At the trade shows, Chanticleer representatives will be on hand to answer questions about your title and hand out sell sheets. The author/publisher is responsible for fulfilling orders. Chanticleer Reviews does not take orders or distribute books. Remember these are book store professionals used to ordering books through publishers, Ingram Spark, Lightning Source, etc. Independent Bookseller, most likely, will not order your book from Amazon.

Some trade shows allow a limited number of authors to participate in spotlight events. Although there is an extra cost, they generate a lot of buzz about your book and we encourage you to take advantage of them. You will need to contact us well in advance as the trade shows limit the number of participation opportunities.
