Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Book Tour Questions

Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone has done book tours with local book stores and librarys. And if you have, what approach do you use when requesting permission. If you bring your own books, what kind of monetary relationship do you strike up? Do you provide the promotional publicity, or share it with the book store?

Any input here would be greatly appreciated by me and others, Thanks, Will

Re: Book Tour Questions

Hey Daniel, I've been riding around town today on my bike handing out coupons good for free ebooks through the month of May and I stopped by the local library and talked to the librarian. She said they would be glad to have an author promoting his work if I did the advertising and scheduled it in advance. However, and this is a real big 'however', I cannot sell books at the promotion due to legal reasons having to do with the library being a public building. She recommended that I join a reading group and discuss one of my books (providing free copies to the participants). Unfortunately, I travel and live on the road, so being here for that type of a commitment is out of the question for me. Others might consider this approach though.

Good luck and maybe someone with more experience will chime in soon, Will

When I drag an Avatar to my profile location, it does not remain.  In other words, I can't establish an Avatar for my account.  Any help will be appreciated!
