Extra “From Home” Books
For the Saturday signing, all ticket holders as well as members of the public can bring up to 10 “from home” books per attendee at no charge. If you would like to bring MORE than 10 “from home” books to the signing, a flat fee of $10 will be charged. You can pre-pay this fee via Eventbrite, and we will include your ticket with your registration packet. We will also sticker your “from home” books at the Registration desk. Otherwise, “Extra From Home Books” tickets will be available at Registration on a first-come, first-serve basis, and tickets are limited.
Exceptions: the 10 “books from home” does not apply to NOLA High Roller ticket holders, or to any pre-orders handled by our official book seller, Murder By The Book, or to books purchased on site from Murder By The Book prior to the signing. Also, any books given away as prizes at Nola StoryCon will not count toward the 10 “from home” books limitations. All pre-ordered, on site, and giveaway books will also be pre-stickered for your convenience.
Important note: If an author has a line, you are allowed only 10 books signed at a time. For additional books, you will need to go to the back of the line and wait to get your next batch of books signed. This is because some of our authors have extensive backlists, and we want to be fair to other readers as well as respect building fire codes.
