I’m SO EXCITED because tomorrow we’re going to start revealing our 2016 Coastal Magic Featured Authors!! And if spending the weekend with amazing storytellers isn’t winning enough… we’re going to have a contest through the month of June, and you might WIN FREE REGISTRATION!!
Every day at noon (eastern), throughout the month of June, I’ll be posting a teaser graphic of one of our Featured Authors. The post will give you a little peek at the full graphic, and the FB page of the Featured Blogger that will host the reveal. Then, at 6pm, they’ll show you who the author is. I can’t wait to see all the guesses between noon and 6pm, from people trying to figure out who the author is! (And many days will have double reveals… so double the guessing fun!!)
As a way to make sure that anyone who might be interested in Coastal Magic actually SEES the information, we’re going to do a super easy social media contest to get our Facebook page to 1000 likes, and to share the list of awesome Featured Authors with book loving friends and family. One winner will get FREE REGISTRATION for our 2016 event!
Starting June 1st, when a new Featured Author is revealed on Facebook, share that post for one entry per author (that means on double reveal days, you can earn two entries). (Sharing on multiple platforms – like Twitter, Tumblr, & Instagram – and/or sharing the teaser posts would be awesome, and I would be SO thankful, but the Facebook reveal share is what will get you the daily entry per author.) I’ll be keeping track of the shares by following the hashtag #CMCon16. IF (ONLY IF) the Coastal Magic Convention FB page has at least 1000 likes by July 1st, I’ll draw one name to win a FREE registration. That’s only 172 likes from right now. We’ve got month and a whole lot of incredible author reveals before July 1st. I have no doubt you all can do this!!
Please keep in mind that we are ABSOLUTELY a no spam convention! Yes, I want the FB page to get more likes, and I am asking for social media shares from those of you who participate. But please do NOT go overboard. Enthusiasm is great, and very much appreciated, but we don’t need to annoy your timelines to spread the word about Coastal Magic. 🙂
If anyone has any questions about the contest, or anything else event related… just let me know. And make sure you’ve all got your calendars marked and your reminders set for July 1st, when general registration goes on sale (for anyone who doesn’t win the contest, that is!)
GOOD LUCK, everyone!!
See you all at noon eastern tomorrow with our first teaser!
