This form MUST be completed in order to confirm your author for the 27th annual Texas Book Festival, taking place in-person in Austin, TX, November 5–6. If more than one of the book’s contributors will be participating (e.g., two co-authors, or both an author and an illustrator), a separate confirmation form must be completed by or for each participant.
The link to this form is set to expire on June 15 for children’s and YA invitations and June 24 for adult invitations. Invitations are issued on a rolling basis between May and August, but this invitation—and the link to it—expires on these dates. We strongly encourage you to submit the form below as early as possible upon receiving it.
Upon submitting the form, please also make sure to ship 4–5 finished copies of the featured book to Texas Book Festival, ATTN: Literary Director, 1023 Springdale Road, Building 14, Suite B, Austin, TX 78721. If finished copies are not yet available, please arrange for them to be shipped once they are. These serve as desk copies for our programming committees’ reference, as copies for moderators’ preparation, and sometimes as copies used in Festival promotional/giveaway campaigns during the run-up to Festival Weekend.
Important: The details of the TBF lineup remain embargoed until they are announced to the public in late August or early September. Please refrain from publicly announcing your placement in the lineup until then.
- Full lineup announcement: Late August / early September
- Full schedule/program release: Late September / early October
