I'm working with a friend firstname.lastname@example.org to put 15 independent British Authors in a new popup store in Brick Lane area of London. Anna is setting up the store for up and coming designers.
The shop is on Cheshire Street, just off Brick Lane, opening on the 15th of August (although the launch party is likely to happen a week later, simply too many things to organise at once).
There will be a mix of design products, including fashion, accessories, jewellery, prints, photography, home ware and interior design. In terms of books I would like to create a shelf dedicated to new British writers and have between 3 and 5 titles there each month. The shop will stay open for 3 months so there will be an opportunity for max 15 writers to get involved.
In order to create interest Anna is giving authors a special deal (only for writers though), £87 per calendar month (£20 per week) per title. She's not VAT registered yet so won’t add VAT on top of this. Please note there is a charge 10% commission from sales to cover the cost of card terminals and transactions. You are welcome to bring in as many copies as you’d like as I have a large basement for extra stock.
This is a great opportunity at not a lot of money to put your books in a store and get exposure to a captive market.
If you are interested and want to get involved please contact myself email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
