WE HAVE FEATURED AUTHORS!! (And… you can win a chance to hang with us at #CMCon17!!)

We’ve got a handful to add in the coming weeks, but if you look closely, there’s a pretty fantastic listing of Featured Authors for our 2017 weekend in that pretty promo graphic below!! Go ahead… take a minute… look it over… I’ll wait…


If you check out the Charity Book Signing page, these authors are listed there. They’re also listed (with extra special bio graphics and links to their websites) on our official Featured Author page. We’ve already got some awesome authors to add to this list, once all the details are ironed out, so keep checking back through the summer to see who else will be joining us by the beach in February.

If you’d like to join us for a weekend of shenanigans with our authors, readers, and bloggers — you have two ways to do so. The most common way is to purchase a General Registration on or after July 1st. The full weekend General Registration will be $90, and will allow you to participate in the full schedule of activities. The second way to be involved in the 2017 Coastal Magic Convention is to WIN your way in!! Our first contest of the year starts today, and runs the entire month of June.


#CMCBookBuddies Contest Info & Rules

  1. Earn ONE entry per day. Only one, per person, per day. No matter which social media platform you choose (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Tumblr). Multiple posts will NOT get you multiple entries.
  2. Your entry must include ALL FOUR of the following:
    1. Comment about Coastal Magic (ex – “I’m excited to have a chance to win my way into Coastal Magic Convention 2017!”, or similar)
    2. Hashtag: #CMCBookBuddies
    3. Coastal Magic’s website link (http://coastalmagicconvention.com) or Facebook event page link (http://www.facebook.com/events/542458849262074/).
    4. Tag ONE friend (preferably someone who doesn’t know about Coastal Magic, yet).
  3. You must tag a different person each day. (No tagging the same person 30 times, lol!) We are NOT spamming people!
  4. Entries will be tracked using the hashtag (#CMCBookBuddies) from June 1st through June 30th. Winner will be chosen at random and announced on July 1st.

What You Win!!!

  1. Complimentary, full weekend General Registration for entry into Coastal Magic 2017!! (This does NOT include transportation, hotel reservation, or any other expenses.)
  2. Half priced, full weekend General Registration for the person you TAGGED in your winning entry. (This does NOT include transportation, hotel reservation, or any other expenses.) This is not transferable, if the person you tagged doesn’t collect this portion of the prize, it will be recycled to another giveaway at a later date.


If anyone has any questions about the contest (or anything else, really) — please use the form on our contact page, or you can ask in our Coastal Magic: Authors and Attendees Facebook Group.

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Featured Author spotlight posts to be starting on our Featured Bloggers‘ sites next month! This will be the perfect way to revisit some of your favorites, and get to know some of the new-to-you authors. We’ll also be starting up our Featured Author Reading Challenge again (earlier, and with a more complete listing… more details on that coming later this week!)


Who are some of your favorites on the listing? Who are some that are new to you? Who’s going to be doing our Featured Author Reading Challenge this year?

  2. I’m really excited to start one or two of the featured author posts next month, and seeing what all the other bloggers come up with. I’m also looking forward to participating in the Featured Author Reader Challenge this time.

  3. I think I am going to take on the reading challenge… not sure I can do 60, but I think I can maybe 30. The CMC is on my birthday this year and I really hope to make it.
