Coastal Magic Convention Book besties theme. February 22-25, 2024

It’s June 1st — and in the world of Coastal Magic, that means the #CMCon24 Featured Author listing has been posted, and our full weekend registration for readers is now open!!!

Dubbed the Coastal Magic “season” by the reading challenge participants, things stay active for Coastal Magic authors, bloggers, and attendees from June 1st through our weekend together in February. There are author spotlights from the Featured Bloggers. There is an active, engaging Reading Challenge group that showcases the authors and guides readers as they motivate each other to read (and review) at least one book from each author in the lineup. (And win prizes!!) There are also online panel discussions, chats, and activities in the Facebook Authors & Attendees group, and so much more!!

This year, the theme focuses on all of the friendships we’ve made and seen through the years! The “Book Besties Weekend” will shine a spotlight on our own bookish besties, the best friends in the stories we love, and our authors’ writer BFFs!!

There is also merch!!!! The first two of the three t-shirt designs are now live. The 2024 Reading Challenge design will be revealed soon, so keep your eyes open for that one. Right now — we have a collection of items featuring our annual #CMCon24 logo and theme, and our friendship quote design

Jennifer is hosting an awesome giveaway on the Coastal Magic Convention blog, to kick off the Coastal Magic “season” with a win. One entry will be randomly selected to win a print or digital copy of a book from one of the 2024 Featured Authors. This is open to readers everywhere. Winner will be selected and notified on June 10th. Coastal Magic, not the author, will be providing this prize. Good luck, everyone!!
