Here’s a quick rundown of how Autographing works:

When will Autographing go live?
Saturday May 11th 10:00 AM ET
Please note: Autographing tickets are first come first served and tend to go quickly, if you have an author you’re extra excited for we recommend being prompt!

How much are Autographing Tickets?
They are free, however each session has different requirements to participate. Please check the details on each session to find out details.

How many Autographing Tickets can I get?
General tickets are allowed two (2) free tickets per person per day.

Can I get more than two tickets?
Prior to BookCon, fans are only allotted two (2) tickets per day. If there are additional autographing tickets left once you get to BookCon, they will be available at the Autographing booth on a first come first served basis.

What do I need to get a ticket?
All you need is your confirmation code and select the 2 authors you want to see per day on our website.

What if I bought my friends/family tickets with one email?
That’s ok! You can all use the same confirmation code with different emails. Please note that you cannot select multiple tickets for one session during one check out session, so if you bought a ticket for someone who wants to see the same author as you in Autographing, you will either need to go through the checkout process twice (if you are the person getting all the Autographing Tickets) OR you will both need to go through the process separately with the same confirmation code. .

Will there be any Autographing lotteries?
These are separate from official BookCon autographing. Check the session description or with the origin of the information (original poster on social) for details.

Can we trade tickets?
Tickets cannot be traded.

What will an author sign?
Every author is different, please check the PDF here.

Can I get a photo with an author?
Every author is different, please check the PDF here.

Can I use two tickets for one author so I get more time with them?
Some authors will happily sign multiple items (please check the PDF here), but having multiple tickets will not guarantee more time with an author.

What about In Booth Signings?
In Booth signings are managed by the booths/exhibitors and will often be either ticketed or first come first served. Please check the session details or ask the exhibitors for more details on a session. These sessions are not ticketed by BookCon unless stated in the description of the session.

If you have more questions, feel free to email us or reach out to us on our official social media channels.
