Mini-Quiz: Selling Books from a Table

by Ron Kurtus (1 February 2014)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Can you set up a table at a local fair?

No, because they do not want people to sell things

It is uncertain, because no one has tried it before

Yes, provided you have permission and it is appropriate

2. What should be your real reason to try to sell books from a table?

You hope that promoting your book will result in future sales

You want to make enough money to justify spending your valuable time there

You hope that the local media will feature you on television

3. What else should you bring besides your books?

A comfortable chair

A display sign, brochures, and other hand-outs

A public address system

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Self-Publishing. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
