Hotel Room Block

Posted on

Good evening! I wanted to make sure that everyone who needed it had the room block for The Crowne Plaza. It’s $119/night and you can reserve your room online here: https://aws.passkey.com/e/15624597.

If you haven’t bought your tickets already, no problem. Head over to the “tickets” tab on our site and pick your favorite ticket option! You can buy a ticket for either time slot or you can purchase a VIP ticket which gets you into both time slots, a snazzy tote bag with some great LAE swag, and entrance into the after party.

Our after party will have a DJ, cash bar, desserts, and a photobooth! Everyone had a blast in 2015. Don’t miss out on all the fun and the chance to meet 50 fabulous authors! We can’t wait to see you there!

Note: We’re also going to have raffle baskets for you to enter to win during the event. All proceeds will benefit Operation CatSnip. We’ll also be doing a supply drive for them as well, which can get you free tickets for the raffle baskets if you bring in a much needed item. Currently, I’m fostering cats/kittens for this organization. I’ve also adopted from them. They do all they can to rescue cats from kill shelters. Operation CatSnip also goes out of their way to feed feral cat colonies and spay/neuter the cats in those colonies so they do not grow in numbers. I can’t speak enough about the wonderful things this organization does. Our raffle will be dubbed “Books and Cats”. Lots more info to follow about this!

Tickets are live!
