2017 Coastal Magic General Registration is NOW OPEN!!

Today’s the day… today’s the day!!!!

july1st

Today is the opening of our 5th Annual event’s General Registration! I can’t really believe it’s been 5 years, but I started planning Olde City, New Blood (Coastal Magic’s original incarnation) in early summer, 2012. That first year was… well… it was a lot of fun, and certainly a learning experience. My little shindig has come a long way, and I’m so, so proud of the community of authors and readers we’ve developed.

So… enough of my nostalgia… it’s time to get yourself registered to join us next year!! Coastal Magic is, by design, a small event. The registration (which is $90 and covers all our scheduled activities, and your lunch with an author on Saturday) is capped at 250 readers/bloggers. We came *really* close to selling out of registrations last year, so if you know you’re going to be coming to hang with us by the beach in February, I suggest getting yourself settled earlier than later! You just need to go to the REGISTRATION page of this site, and after you check out the details, you can click the EventBrite.com button there to buy your full weekend ticket.

You can click on the tab at the top of the page to see short bios and website links for our current Featured Authors (a few more will be announced through the summer). But if you’re not in the clicky mood — here’s a handy dandy listing!

I’m doing the hotel reservation process a bit different this year. You’ll receive an email containing our group code and reservation page link after you complete your registration. I’m hoping this will slow down the “sellout” problem on our reserve block, as only those who’ve registered will have access to the room reserve info. You can still see the hotel info and fee details on our HOTEL/TRAVEL page as a reference. And FYI, I’ll also list multiple, very nice and reasonably priced hotels within easy walking distance of our Hilton… as I anticipate we’ll sell out again this year.

I’m sure there’ll be a lot of questions to answer and/or clarifications to make. You can comment on this post, or reach me on our Coastal Magic Convention Authors & Attendees Facebook Group. You can also reach me via the contact form and/or email on the CONTACT page of this site.

I’m excited to get this ball a’rollin — and I can’t wait to see you all next year by the beach!!

  1. This is going to be so freakin’ awesome! I can’t wait for February to get here. And by then I’ll be even more excited, because that is in the middle of our cold, cold winter here in Washington State. 🙂
