Latest Event Updates
May 13th, 2017
The Crowne Plaza
We’re only five days out from the Louisville Authors Event! It’s this Saturday, May 13th. For those who haven’t purchased tickets yet, General Admission is 75% off and the After Party tickets are 50% off. We’d love to see you there!
For those attending, please remember we have two time slots. Please note, during the author lunch break, all attendees will need to leave the exhibit hall.
- First time slot: 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
- (Then the authors have a lunch break)
- Second time slot: 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm
- After Party: 8:00 pm to Midnight
All VIP ticket holders will receive an LAE tote bag with LAE swag inside, plus a Free VIP After Party drink ticket inside! It’s going to be a blast with a cash bar, desserts, DJ, and photobooth!
If you’re coming from Preston Hwy (which is how most people turn onto Phillips Ln), then here is the map to show you which entrance to park near so you’re closest to the Exhibit Hall.
Here is an updated list of authors that will be at LAE for you to meet, greet, and buy autographed books from! Remember we’re having tons of raffle baskets to benefit Operation CatSnip of Kentucky Inc as well as three handmade cat trees that my husband built. Love books and cats? Then this is the place to be! Join the FB Fan Group to see what items you can donate to get free raffle ticket entries!
Today is April 1st and we’re getting closer to LAE! No joke! We have 42 days until the big event. With that being said, VIP tickets will only be available until April 10th. That means you have 10 more days to grab these tickets! And for some reason they’re still discounted! So you can still get these bad boys for 10% off!
We also have event tshirts and totes available for purchase until April 10th. This will make a great keepsake. You can get all of the attending authors to sign these to remember the day! These items will be available for pickup on the day of the event.
Our site is currently up to date with all of the attending authors, but just in case you missed it, here is the list!
If you haven’t seen it on Facebook, the Louisville Authors Event is having a St. Patrick’s Day sale! Right now General Admission tickets are 75% off, After Party tickets are 50% off, and VIP tickets are 10% off! We also have shirts and totes available. They always make a great keepsake if you have all of the authors sign them.
I can finally share the news of our latest author! We’ll have Creek Stewart, best known for his TV series Fat Guy in the Woods on the Weather Channel, as a signing author at LAE! He has both fiction and non-fiction books. His latest is a YA Dystopian, Rugosa. He also has several survival guide books.
Check out his website and his list of books

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 for LAE are now live! You can find all of the info on our “tickets” tab.
