Coastal Magic Convention 2017 Registration Now Open!

Today’s the day… today’s the day!!!!

july1st

Today is the opening of Coastal Magic’s 5th Annual event’s General Registration! It’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years, yet Jennifer Morris started planning Olde City, New Blood (Coastal Magic’s original incarnation) in early summer, 2012. From what she says, that first year was… well… it was a lot of fun, and certainly a learning experience. From my experience attending last year.  It’s come a long way, and developed into quite a community of authors and readers, and still a boat load, or maybe beach load of fun.

That being said … 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, we suggest getting yourself settled earlier rather 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.

Jennifer is 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. She’s 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, she’ll also list multiple, very nice and reasonably priced hotels within easy walking distance of our Hilton… as she anticipates 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 Jennifer on our Coastal Magic Convention Authors & Attendees Facebook Group. You can also reach her via the contact form and/or email on the CONTACT page of the Coastal Magic Convention site.

I’m super excited, today has finally arrived.  Now all the fun can really begin.  Once you’ve registered, you will definitely want to join the Coastal Magic Convention Authors & Attendees Facebook Group  if you haven’t already.  You’ll also want to check out our  CMCon17 Featured Authors Reading Challenge group for the reading challenge which starts today as well.  It’s a great way to check out the different author’s books, have some fun, and win some prizes at the same time.

Since Books, Coffee, and Crafts News is one of the “Featured Bloggers” this year, I get the privilege of hosting one or more of Coastal Magic 2017’s “Featured Authors” each month until the convention.  Isn’t that awesome.  Look for my Coastal Magic 2017 “Featured Authors” Get Crafty spotlights in the coming months.

Starting the countdown to #CMCon2017 — can’t wait to see you all next year by the beach!!
