This is a free event, but the store will start giving out wristbands when it opens that day; this is mostly to keep people from camping out. 

There is PLENTY of room at this store, so please don't stress if you can't get a wristband until just before the event. There will be enough space, and I'll sign everybody's books.

DALLAS * FANGIRL SPECIAL EDITION LAUNCH

TICKET INFORMATION:

A ticket to this event gives you priority seating. It's a big store, with room for hundreds of people -- so I can't imagine we'll run out of space. But ticketholders get to sit first.

You can get a ticket/wristband by buying one of my books in person at the store anytime before the event starts. 

There's no signing limit.
