Coastal Magic, like every other convention/event out there, is a group effort. We need the authors who inspire and entertain us, we need the readers who share our enthusiasm for the stories, and we need bloggers who help bring the two together and keep the ball rolling through the weekend. Our Featured Bloggers help promote the convention, work with our Featured Authors for spotlight posts during the months leading up to our event, and help with prep and panel moderating during the event. It’s a lot of work, and without their efforts, Coastal Magic simply would not happen.
It’s time to announce the lovely ladies who’ll be filling those rolls for next year! HUGE thank you to the following bloggers for taking on the tasks, and helping to make Coastal Magic happen. Be sure to check out (and follow/subscribe to) all of their sites, as you’ll find monthly features from each of our Featured Authors, along with other Coastal Magic fun (holiday contests, blog hops, etc.) You don’t want to miss any of the author shenanigans they’ll be putting together for you!!
