Hello, lovely bookish peeps!!
Just wanted to pop in and let you all know about a change in the opening day of registration for Coastal Magic 2020. In the past, we’ve done our Featured Author reveals in June, and in July, we open reader registration. I have realized that we lose people during those days of excitement as the authors are being revealed, but they can’t register to join us, yet. A month later, some readers have moved on to other exciting things, and we’re no longer on their mind.
After seeing the results from readers when I asked in our attendees Facebook group, and having a few conversations with a few others who run events… I’ve decided to open registration on June 1st. This lines up with the same time we’ll be letting everyone know who the amazing Featured Authors will be.
Obviously, if you can register right away, that’s great. If you need more time, that’s fine, too. Based on our history, there’s very little chance that we’ll be sold out when our usual July 1st opening date comes around.
Thank you all for your input. Make sure you adjust your calendars/reminders! Also, if you’re on Facebook, and haven’t yet, you should check out our Authors & Attendees group. It’s a fun place for bookish silliness and Coastal Magic discussions.
Hello all 🙂
I apologize for the delay in making this announcement… we had to do a bit of juggling and maneuvering, but I got final confirmation from the hotel today…
The eighth annual Coastal Magic Convention will be returning to the Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront, from February 20 – 23, 2020.
As usual, the Featured Author announcement will come in June, and our general registration for readers will begin on July 1st.
Tell all of your bookish friends, and make some plans. We’re hoping to see you all for some “Roaring 20s” fun in 2020!!
