Will You Be With Us In Daytona for #CMCon19?

We’re in the final weeks before this year’s Coastal Magic Convention, and we’ve still got a few spaces for YOU!! Have you seen our awesome lineup of authors who are waiting to hang out with you?


And if you’re a convention junkie (like me), and plan to attend multiple events in our area this year… we’ve got a deal for you!!


In a fantastic partnership with Orlando’s Indie Bookfest (Aug 1-4, 2019), we’re going to save you some money!! When you register for Coastal Magic Convention (using this link on the registration page), be sure to include the #CMCIBF19 hashtag in the notes to receive a discount code for IBF19!

We’d love to have you with us for a weekend of bookish shenanigans, and some Mardi Gras fun, to boot! Panels, prizes, meet & greets, and lots of chatting with authors and other readers.

Come spend a weekend with us, celebrating the magic of stories and storytellers.

Getting Started For Coastal Magic 2019: Featured Blogger Introductions

Well, HELLO THERE, everyone!!

It’s been a little while since our 2018 Coastal Magic weekend, I hope you’ve all got some great memories from that event, and are ready to make some more at #CMCon19!

Some of the first things I have to do in the planning process are find amazing authors for you to get excited about, and incredible bloggers to help us get to know them all. The Featured Author announcement will be coming at the end of this month, but right now I’d like you to meet our Featured Blogger group.

Some of these will be familiar faces. (Laura’s been with me since the first year!) Not only do they work hard to promote our authors and the convention BEFORE our weekend, they moderate our panels and do SO MUCH to help make sure Coastal Magic runs smoothly. I’m thrilled to have so many returning bloggers, and excited to get to work with some amazing new peeps.

The blogs these ladies and gents represent cover such a wide variety of genres and target audiences, kinda like us! Each month, from July through February, they will host Featured Author Spotlights. This is where you get the chance to learn a little more about each of our Featured Authors, get familiar with their writing before the event, and even win a prize or two! In addition to their own monthly posts, these will be the blogs involved in any of our convention sponsored blog events, to promote Coastal Magic and/or the authors. Those will generally happen around a holiday, and will all involve contests. 🙂

So… give these blogs a peek. Be sure to subscribe to them, and/or follow all of their social media outlets, so you don’t miss any of the fun!

2016 Coastal Magic Featured Bloggers Announcement

Hello all!!

There is absolutely, positively, without question, NO WAY ON EARTH that Coastal Magic would be as successful as it has been every year without the contribution and dedication of our Featured Bloggers. These ladies volunteer their time and energy before, and during the convention. They’re passionate about books and authors, and give so much heart to this event. I’m very grateful to have them, and I’m thrilled to announce our Featured Blogger lineup for the 2016 convention. (You’ll see a few familiar names on the list… huge thanks to those who’ve been with me for 2, 3, and 4 years!)

Be sure to check out each of these ladies’ awesome sites. In the next few months, you’ll see a lot of information about Coastal Magic, and our Featured Authors. As in years past, each of the Featured Bloggers will be hosting monthly spotlights with our Featured Authors. You’re not going to want to miss those. (You can check our Featured Bloggers page, tabbed above, to catch a weekly wrap up of all their post links.) We’ll also be doing fun “blog hop” type events, twitter takeovers, and (starting June 1st) Facebook Featured Author Reveals.

Again, I want to thank these ladies for agreeing to be a part of Coastal Magic, and for helping to make it so amazing for all of us.

The next BIG THING everyone should keep an eye open for is the start of our Featured Author announcements!! The lovely ladies listed above and I will be revealing our 2016 authors, one by one, throughout the month of June. Each day will be a new reason to get excited, and I can’t WAIT to share!! Then, registration begins on July 1st… so mark your calendars!
