Authors

Hooks Book Events works with authors and their newly published books. We produce events that expose you and your book to smart, targeted audiences. Using our independent store network, we provide non-returnable book sales at our events and work to get our featured books on the best seller lists.

Below is a list of authors who have worked with us over the past several years. Click on the highlighted authors to learn more about their events.
