Author Early-Bird Registration
Thank you for joining us in Deadwood in 2019! Just like in 2017 and 2018, we are in the planning process and have ideas for many fun and adventurous outings for the weekend, and we hope you’ll be with us right from the start on Thursday afternoon. The link to reserve your hotel with our amazing room rates is coming soon.
For 2019, we’ve again reserved the 13,000 square foot Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center for the Book Fair. This year, everyone loved the hotel, casino, restaurants, bars, and especially the Event Center where the Book Fair, Breakfast With the Authors, and the Meet-and-Greet took place. And in 2019, maybe we’ll find something more to do there, too!
We have three table options for you for the Book Fair on Saturday:
PREMIUM LOCATION! A full 8 foot table (shown in GREEN) which includes linen and two chairs for just $150. You may have either an Assistant or a Cover Model sit with you at the table.
A full 6 foot table (shown in YELLOW) which includes linen and two chairs for just $125. You may have either an Assistant or a Cover Model sit with you at the table.*
A half of an 8 foot table (shown in YELLOW) with linens and one chair. You’ll be sharing the table with another Author, and so will not be able to have an Assistant or Cover Model at the table with you. This budget-friendly option is only $75.*
*the 6 foot and half 8 foot tables will be set up in the YELLOW table area according to the order of author registrations.
Table registration is REFUNDABLE THROUGH DECEMBER 15, 2018. After that, there are no refunds.
With either table registration, you’ll receive a specially-colored neck wallet with a name tag that will boldly identify you as an Author as well as FREE advertising in the full-color Memory Book that will be given at no-charge to readers. We’ll contact you for the Memory Book info early next year.
Here’s the 2019 seating map. We’ve left lots of space so we can give you plenty of room between tables, and room for stand-up banners. Notice we’ve place a barrier (a low one) between the Book Fair tables and the Breakfast tables. Readers will enter at the area by Table 1.
As soon as the hotel has our room registration link available, we’ll notify you and you can come back to this page and reserve your hotel room. We have an amazing price of just $169* per night, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday – June 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9, 2019.
If you have any problems booking your room, please call the hotel front desk 605-559-0386 and tell them you’re with Wild Deadwood Reads, and there is a special rate. Please contact one of the hosts if you have any problems. Thank you!
*The small print: Hotel rates are subject to a $2.00 per room per night occupancy tax and applicable local lodging taxes of (8.5%) but the hotel is WAIVING THE $12.95 PER NIGHT RESORT FEE FOR US**! That’s because they are so excited to have us at their beautiful, grand hotel. **More small print: When you book your room, the price will include the Resort Fee, but when you are in Deadwood, the hotel will credit the amount from your bill at checkout. (We have it in writing!)
