Hosting Authors are required to bring a gift for each person at their table (seven gifts at all.) The value should be around $10, not including the value of any books you give away.

In addition, Hosting Authors need to provide one door prize which will be raffled at various times in the weekend. (Some at the Friday event, some at lunch, some during the signing, and some at the Saturday buffet.) The door prize should have a value of between $50 and $80 (not including the value of any books included) and MUST BE PG-13 or lower. No erotic items please.
