Hello and Welcome!
I am pleased to be working with you and hope we will have a successful event.

Below I have outlined how we typically run our online events. Please note that while I am open to changing the format of the event, the safety protocols and promotion/marketing policies are not up for negotiation.

E. Shaver Booksellers is currently hosting all our author events on the Zoom Webinar platform. I have found this to be the easiest and safest platform for online events.

Thank you,
Annie Childress
Operations and Events Manager

Zoom Webinar Format

3-5 minute intro by Annie Childress, Operations and Events Manager at E. Shaver. The intro will include the welcome, reading of the code of conduct, explanation of the chat (should the author choose to use it) and Q&A features as well as a short bio introduction of the author(s).
40 minute presentation or conversation by the author
10-13 minute Q&A session. The Questions will be asked by Annie Childress and will be asked at her discretion. She will be the only one able to view the questions as a safety measure for the author.
2 min closing remarks by Annie Childress


E. Shaver, bookseller will post on our social media up to 3 times, at our discretion, leading up to the event. We will also provide in store promotion, via our staff, at our discretion. All other promotion and marketing falls to the author and/or publicist. If there are less than five RSVPs the event may be cancelled at the discretion of the Events Manager.

Safety Protocols

- We use Zoom Webinar because it does not allow anyone unauthorized by the Events Manager to be seen or heard.
- We send out a link to the event on the afternoon of, as a cautionary measure against “Zoom bombing.”
- Authors are allowed the choice of turning off the chat during their event. Depending on the subject matter of the book the Events Manager may suggest doing so. Should the author choose to keep the chat on and it becomes a platform of hate speech or other inappropriate communications the Events Manager will discontinue the chat.
- The Q&A portal will only be accessible by the events manager and she will ask the questions at her discretion.
