Bella NOLA Author Event 2020

Getting there
500 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA

Come join us in The Big Easy for a weekend of fun filled with books, laughter, photos, and a good time with some of your favorite authors. The signing will take place on Saturday, February 29th, 2020. VIP Admission is from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM. Authors will break for lunch from 11:30 to 1:15. General Admission starts at 1:30 PM and ends at 5:00 PM. These events are for those 18 years and older, no exceptions. PLEASE read ticket information carefully! VIP and General Admission tickets will go on sale Saturday, March 30th, 2019 at 11:00 AM CST. ALL tickets are NON REFUNDABLE. If you purchase tickets and can no longer attend, you may SELL or TRANSFER your ticket to someone else as long as you send me your name and email address along with the other person’s name and email address. Please do not purchase a ticket if you do not agree to comply with the no refund policy. This policy is due to people requesting refunds after I have already used the funds to pay the hotel for the event space. ***Should I choose to do any future sales, holiday specials, or promotions for tickets, no refunds for the difference in amount will be refunded. Example: If you purchase a ticket for $40 and I decide to have a promotion or a sale three months later offering that same ticket for $35, I will not refund you $5. The purpose of sales and promotions is to sell more tickets. As an event organizer I do not know how ticket sales will go from year to year. The line up is always different, so the event won't sell the exact amount of tickets each year. Ticket sales are based on how many readers want and choose to attend the signing. I apologize for any inconvenience.*** FAQs Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? Yes. All persons must have a valid ID and be 18 or older to attend unless given special permission by event organizer. What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? I recommend using an uber for the cheapest prices but taxis are available. Valet parking will be available at the hotel for anyone coming to the event on Friday and/or Saturday. There are also various parking lots and parking garages in the french quarter and downtown that are within walking distance to the hotel. The hotel has agreed to give us discounted parking for up to 9 hours to those only attending the signing on Saturday. What can I bring into the event? You may bring a maximum of 8 books/personal items per author to sign at one time. If you have more than 8 books/personal items that you would like signed by an attending author, you may get back in line for that author at a later time. This allows for everyone to have the same chance at meeting all of the authors. You can bring books, iPad/Kindle/Nook cases, and items from home, or purchase them from the authors at the signing. You may also leave the signing and come back as long as you have your wristband on. The 8 books/items from home rule does not apply to any pre orders or to any books that you purchase from authors the day of the signing. Please do not bring wagons. Wagons are not allowed inside the event/signing room. You may bring a fold up/collapsable rolling cart. You can have two if you need. These carts are easier to manuver around the room and less likely to roll over someone's feet than a wagon. If you bring a wagon, you must leave it in your hotel room. Wagons cannot be left in the hallways or waiting/lobby area outside of the event/signing room. How can I contact the organizer with any questions? You can e-mail me at with any questions you may have. Messages sent through facebook or Instagram may not be answered as quickly. What's the refund policy? PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY! VIP and General Admission tickets are NON REFUNDABLE but may be transferred or sold to another attendee. Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? You do not have to bring your printed ticket to the event, but you do have to have a copy of the ticket on your phone via e-mail if you choose not to bring a paper copy. Can I update my registration information? Yes, contact me at to update your contact and/or registration information. Is my ticket transferrable? Yes. Tickets may be transferred. Please e-mail your name and paypal e-mail address along with the name and e-mail address of the person you are selling/transferring your tickets to, the number of tickets you are transferring, and the type of ticket purchased/transferred to so that I can switch your information. Tickets must be transferred no later than 02/28/2019 at 6:00 PM CST. Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends? Yes. As long as you and the person/persons you purchased tickets for have a valid ID, this is fine. For example, if you purchased tickets under your husband's paypal name and e-mail, you just need your ticket and a valid ID. Anyone that you purchased tickets for must check in with you at registration and have a valid ID as well. If you purchased the tickets for someone else but are not attending yourself, please contact me so that I can get the correct information switched over.
