AUTHORS AND BOOKSELLERS
Returning Authors: please OPT IN!
Authors: Whether you're a new or returning author, please register to get on the Participating Authors list. When you're not properly registered we have to do manual workarounds to enter and update information. If you hate computers, ask someone who's comfortable with computers to help you. We appreciate your cooperation.
Everybody: Remember there is a downloadable User Guide. Many questions we get are already answered there. We're happy to offer email support but please remember there are hundreds of you and only a couple of us volunteers looking after the website, part-time. So please download the User Guide, print it off, and look up what you need when you run into problems. Then if you're still stumped, send us an email.
If you're already in the Author database, please OPT IN. If you want to know why, read this blog.
Not sure whether you're in the database? Click on Author database to see whether you're in there. If you are, click on the link below to OPT IN.
If you're not in the Author database, SIGN UP by clicking on the link below. It will take you through the process of creating an author user account. It's not hard - just provide the username and password you want for logging in, your publisher, city and province, etc. IMPORTANT: be sure to tick the box beside 'I will participate in AFI 2017'
If you're a bookseller participating again this year, you don't need to do a thing. Except log in to submit your CONFIRM AUTHOR forms when you have your authors lined up.
If you can't do it this year, just send an email via the Contact form and we'll take you off the list. You're still in the database, you just won't show up on this year's list of Participating Bookstores.
If you're new to AFI, please read the FAQs for Booksellers (main menu bar, above). Then if you decide to participate, click on the SIGN UP link below. It will register your store by creating a bookseller user account. One sign up per store location please!
If you are a publisher, check whether your publishing house is on our publisher list? If not, contact us and we'll add you to the database. This makes it easier for your authors to sign up. In the meantime, go ahead and SIGN UP for an account. This gives you a log in to track your authors and gets you on our newsletter mailing list.
