Event FAQ

When is the event?

Saturday, May 14th, 2022 from 10 am – 3pm.

Where is the Tassie Indie Author Book Fair being held?

The event will be held indoors, downstairs, at the Brooke Street Pier.

What’s an Indie author? Are they self-published? Or do publish things beyond the normal square of mainstream publishers?

We love this question! We get it a lot actually. You can find the answer here. At the event this year, we have both self-published authors, as well as hybrid authors.

Where can I park for the event?

Here is a map of parking locations around the event. The event will be at the Brook Street Pier.

Will there be giveaways and prizes on the day?

Yes! We will have multiple book giveaways as well as gift vouchers from some of our sponsors!

Will there be any new books launching on the day of the book fair?

We’re excited to announce we will have 9 authors launching books at the Book Fair this year!

Will you have Eftpos available or is it cash only?

Each author will collect sales for their own books. It will be up to the author whether they will accept Eftpos or cash only.

There is an ATM at the venue and we will point that out to visitors should they need it.

Which Tasmanian authors will be attending?

Check out the link for many of the Tasmanian Indie Authors attending! Not all are listed, so there will be a few surprises on the day! Check out our Facebook page for the latest information!

Where can you buy the author’s books if you can’t attend to the Book Fair?

On our Tasmanian Indie Authors page, you’ll find links to the author’s websites and/or social pages. Our sponsors, Fullers Bookshop and The Hobart Book Shop also stock many of the Tasmanian Indie Author’s books. (And if they don’t have what you’re looking for, just ask. They’re happy to order the book in for you.)

I’m a Tasmanian Indie Author. Is it too late to apply for the 2022 Book Fair?
