Wicked Book Weekend 2018 - Florida Book Signing
Wicked Book Weekend 2018 is the sixth Wicked Book Event. Our weekend is a little different. We limit it to 50 romance authors and 350 total attendees. Our signing is intimate and readers are encouraged to go to each author to discover their books. We even have a custom scrapbook for sale at cost for you to get each author’s signature. The lines are never more than 10 minutes long. The weekend is not about waiting in line getting your book signed and running to the next, it's about actually spending time with your favorite authors! Planned at the beautiful oceanfront hotel, the Bahia Mar, there are plenty of activities and restaurants within walking distance, or you can hop on a water taxi right from the hotel to go elsewhere. ALL EVENTS ARE 18+. NO REFUNDS. Tickets ARE transferable until 7 days before the event.
