How To Be An Awesome Attendee At An Author Signing Event

I get it. It’s overwhelming.

Knowing that you’re going to your first or fiftieth author signing (ahem Shameless Book Con) can be both exciting and nervous-poop-inducing. Me and my anxiety will be with you while we squee one minute and in the stall next door trying not to make embarrassing butt sounds the next.

I’ve put together a little list of helpful hints for brand new signing attendees, seasoned event-goers, and everyone in between.

See you in October!

Take Pictures

  • Put yourself in the photos
  • Ask the author’s assistant to take one for you
  • Tag flattering pics on social media
  • Tagging authors in signing pics is encouraged!
  • Sharing private party pics publicly is a no-no
  • Upload to PicNut
    • Download the app then join the Shameless Book Con 2016 group using the passcode 253480
  • Hashtag everything #SBC16!

Get Things Signed

Make Friends

  • Be shameless! We all belong to the same tribe!

Wear Comfy Shoes

  • Comfort > Cute
    • Check out some of my favorite TOMS!


Plan Ahead

  • 5 hours can go by quickly
  • Trade line-waiting – have a friend hold your space in a long line while you trade meeting other authors
  • Bring the cart we recommend to haul your books and swag

Don’t forget to HAVE FUN!
