Book Launches and Events – North & South America

Although the economics of specialist, academic publishing do not allow for launch parties, Boydell & Brewer Inc is delighted to support authors and editors wishing to organize their own events.


We recommend scheduling your event 3-4 weeks after your publication date. Supply chain difficulties can occur unexpectedly at any time and delay the availability of stock.


Authors may purchase books at with their 50% author discount. Please note that books purchased at this discount rate are non-returnable. Beware of over-ordering; sales at events are typically below 25% of the number of attendees. Keep in mind that virtual events tend to have a lower number of actual attendees than registrants.

Please place your order six weeks in advance of the event to ensure availability of stock.

Selling Books

You may sell the books you have purchased for whatever price you wish, though we recommend offering a discount. If you request discount leaflets to distribute at your event, we can match discounts up to 20% for paperbacks and 35% for hardcovers.

We strongly encourage you to spread the word about your author events through email and social media. Please let us know in advance so that we can help promote it online. We would also be very happy to post photos from the event on social media afterwards.
