Author’s Shelf

Do you have a book in print?

Would you like an additional venue from which to sell it?

If you become a member of CWC SF/Peninsula branch, you can have your book displayed and available at Reach & Teach. The good people of Reach & Teach have devoted a shelf for our SF/Peninsula Writers members’ books.

Here is what we are thinking:

Donate two books
Tell us the price

We will co-ordinate the split with the shop. The club will get the proceeds from these books. When your book sells out, put in two more and keep the profits!
