Wicked Book Weekend started in 2013 as an excuse to meet my favorite authors. At the time, there were no indie book signings. There were a few conventions, but signings weren’t really a thing. I read e-books exclusively, so I didn’t really care about signed books (that’s changed a lot) I just wanted to meet my idols.
To tell you the truth, I read Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec and NEEDED to hang out with the person who wrote the book. I actually wanted to hang with the 2 main characters…and I totally did! In fact, I deliberately picked a hotel with suites so I could actually stay in the same little villa with Tara Sivec! (Stalker much?) Once Tara said yes, I decided to invite some of my other favorites like RK Lilley, Katie Ashley, Raine Miller, Jasinda Wilder, Colleen Hoover and Abbi Glines. Once they signed on, Tiffany King, Sarah M. Ross, Rachael Wade, Katja Millay, Carol & Adam Kunz, CC Wood and Luke Young joined in for the fun.
Since there weren’t any signings, I had no clue what to do. I didn’t want to line up in front of people, I wanted to hang out with them! I didn’t even realize that they would all have paperbacks and displays to set up. I had a beautiful little scrapbook printed for everyone with a page for each author that the readers brought around at the lunch. But the signing and the lunch were one in the same! What did I know?
After the signing we had a full bus of women and jello shots take a trip to Fairvilla, the adult megastore, where we had vibrator sword fights, tied up Tara Sivec, and visited with Henry the ass raping gnome. The next day we got tattoos and the goats screamed all day and we learned all about Spiderman. It was a great time with PJ parties watching Pitch Perfect, Raine Miller teaching us about squirting and grape koolaid that made you forget it all.
Soon after, Book Bash was announced. Since it was only a 4 hour signing, I was asked to plan an after party, and the lineup was incredible! But we realized that planning an event long distance was hard, so I decided to move the event the following year from Orlando to the beach in Ft. Lauderdale, where it has been ever since.
2016 will be another fun time!
We have a Friday night comedy drag show, a Saturday signing and lunch with the authors, an after party that everyone comes to with photo booths and gummy bears (insert evil laugh here).
Sunday we have a blogger breakfast sponsored by the Copa Lounge authors, a Lularoe pop-up sponsored by Harper Sloan, and a BDSM demo sponsored by Kate Roth, Kristen Hope Mazzola and Robin Lee. Then we take off for a sunset boat bar crawl for Tara Sivec and Harper Sloan’s birthday, sponsored by Harper Sloan.
