Fee Reduction Ideas
Fees may be reduced by the following:
- Setting up an outside (non-bee) book reading/signing that generates satisfactory income. At an additional site, such as a commercial bookstore. The same applies to a large sale of the author’s book titles at a meeting (un-discounted).
- Combination of meetings in the same region of the country, such as a circuit tour of a state or area
- Lucky location factor—If the speaker really wants to visit a particular area.
- Tea cup auction or similar fund-raising event to cover cost of event; LJC will contribute books and other items to this event.
