Thank you for your interest in joining us at the inaugural JustRead Rendezvous! This event aims to sweeten reading and storytelling experiences with fellowship and encouragement.

Author Registration

Author registration is open to published authors of the Christian fiction and sweet read genres exclusively (if any of your available titles include coarse language, explicitly, or content potentially offensive to conservative readers, please contact the organizer before registering). Both traditionally and independently published authors are eligible, but for bookstore/signing purposes in order to attend as an author your books must be available in print.

Authors are welcome to donate books, swag, and other items for giveaways. Donations provide additional promotion for authors and books, plus reading enjoyment, inspiration, and blessing for the readers. If interested in donating, please specify what you will contribute and the amount on the registration form. Book donations are used as giveaways at the event or subsequent giveaways related to the event.

All funds collected for Rendezvous are used for the logistics of this event including but not limited to the venue, event marketing, event gifts, catering, etc. All fees & donations collected will be used to pay for services and prizes related to this and future JustRead events.
