coastal magic featured blogger bannerToday I am sharing a bit about the Coastal Magic Convention since registration for the 2022 convention is officially open! CMC has also announced the Featured Author listing for their 10th anniversary weekend!

I have been a long-time fan of this casual, beach-side con and have attended for five years (plus last year’s virtual con). It is such a fun event, and not just because it is in Daytona in February! CMC has a nice low-key vibe with lots of mingling between authors and readers and a really informal atmosphere. It is a great event for folks who are first timers, as well as those who have attended a lot of conventions. While it isn’t an LGBTQ-specific event, CMC always has a large number of authors who write LGBTQ romance. You can check out a full author list here.

I am once again a Featured Blogger for Coastal Magic, so I’ll be doing monthly author spotlights with a few of these amazing writers (my fellow Featured Bloggers will be doing some, as well, so be sure you’re following each of us, and you won’t miss any!) This is going to be a fantastic way to get to know the authors a bit BEFORE our weekend together.

You can check out the website at if you want to learn a little more about the event. Things will update as new information is released between now and February. You can also join the Facebook Authors & Attendees group if you’d like to interact with some of the authors and other readers you might see there.

If reading challenges (either on your own or with a group) are your thing, there’s a group for that!! With a suggested schedule of reading, planned author interactions, points to earn and prizes to win, our Reading Challenge group is definitely the place to be. You can read all about how the challenge works on the website, HERE!

And if you are interested in signing up, you can register here. Hope to see some of you there!
