Shore Leave

I'm going to Shore Leave in August as my first ever convention, mostly because a lot of my favorite Trek authors, many who post here regularly, are attending. I have been reading through the website to see if authors are selling their books there or if you should/can bring your own copies for autographs, plus if and how much authors usually charge, but couldn't find anything. Anyone have any insight?

^There's a bookseller, Constellation Books, that's in attendance at the con and usually has copies of all the guests' books available for people to buy. A number of authors also have copies of their own books on sale at their tables during the Meet the Pros event. But if you already have copies of your own, sure, bring them with you.

Re: Shore Leave

What Christopher said. Constellation is very good at stocking the authors' most recent books, although you're perfectly free to bring books from home that you want signed as well. And some, but not all, authors may have a small supply of their own to sell.

Re: Shore Leave

Sadly, Constellation closed a few months back but the con organizers assure me the replacement retailer has all the ISBNs for the authors' current works and should arrive well stocked. Just about every author comes with books of their own to sell in addition to related items (for example, Peter David brings comic book scripts). The Crazy 8 Press authors will be on hand with several titles debuting, as well.

Personally, my policy is not to compete with the bookseller and I only bring out-of-print titles for people to buy since there's always someone who hasn't read our older works. Those and my C8 titles.

The authors in attendance will happily sign anything you stick in front of them regardless of how you obtained it.

Re: Shore Leave

And Dayton has indicated in a Facebook post linking to the article above that his next book will be talked about at Shore Leave as well, although he won't be there this year.

BONUS: By the end of that weekend, you'll very likely know what I'll be working on next. So, there's that.

I'm hoping I'll be able to announce The Project That Cannot Be Named (Yet) at Shore Leave.
