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 morning. The link to reserve your hotel with our amazing room rates is coming soon.
For 2019, we’ve again reserved the amazing 13,000 square foot Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center for the Book Fair. This year, everyone loved the hotel, guest rooms, 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, we’ll be doing all those events again, and maybe we’ll find something more to do there, too!
Your registration is REFUNDABLE THROUGH DECEMBER 15, 2018. We listened to authors who said they wanted to reserve early to get a premium table, but needed the option to request a REFUND on their Author Registration through the middle of December.
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 and assigned according to the order of author registrations.
Table registration is REFUNDABLE THROUGH DECEMBER 15, 2018. After that, there are no refunds.
With any table registration, you’ll receive a specially-colored neck wallet with a name tag that will boldly identify you as an Author. You’ll also receive FREE advertising in the full-color Memory Book that will be given at no-charge to readers. This was a great favorite of readers and authors alike. We’ll contact you for the Memory Book information 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 even 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 the tables at the bottom right.
