UPDATE! I did skip some lines and I appreciate nobody taking it personally. I've added the ones I missed and did a double cross check by hand with a highlighter. I'm human, we're a small crew of just a couple of people and we've grown a lot. We will make mistakes. I hope that the double-checking is comforting and affirming to you that we are doing our best to make sure you have an amazing experience. BELOW IS THE UPDATED TABLE LISTING. In the near future there will be listing adding a column for those who have paid for space for an assistant and chair counts. Maybe next week.
Hello All! This post is related to SATURDAY 10/14 the author tabling & reader event in Bowie at the Comfort Inn.
Below is what I have organized for FULL tables and HALF tables. At this point all I am doing is counting table capacity to prepare for the floorplan. I don't bother to work on the floorplan until all of this is finalized because it changes too much otherwise which is wasted hours.
The GENRE note is really just so I can organize the tables and keep like genres with like as much as possible. It's not an official listing of your genre, it won't be listed anywhere in this manner - the genres came from me reading your bios and if I couldn't tell your genre from your bio I went to your website. If I've listed your genre as women's fiction and you consider yourself fantasy or hot romance or non-fic - please let me know that. Or if it's way off in some way. Otherwise, it's just to try and make sure your neighbor is a similar genre where possible.
IF YOUR NAME IS NOT ON THIS LIST FOR A TABLE FOR SATURDAY AND YOU PAID YOUR INVOICE DO NOT DISPAIR - I probably just made a mistake. It's a lot of names and lines. We're a small crew. That's why I do these double-checks. Please let me know ASAP if you're supposed to be on this table list or I have you down for the wrong kind of space.
After the deadline closes on 8/15 I will be putting up the final listings on the website.
REGARDING SUNDAY'S AUTHOR-FOCUSED EVENT
There has been a little confusion - Sunday is not a tabling event. You come for a luncheon, networking, and seminars - it's for authors, not readers. Those who signed up to do presentations - as soon as we have closed registration on 8/15 I will get to work on the presentation schedule and luncheon info. Thank you!
