FAQs

How many tickets can be purchased per transaction?

There is a TWO (2) ticket limit per transaction.


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There are no age restrictions for entry, however, we want to make it clear that there will be strong/suggestive language that may be used during panels/events. There will also be alcohol served at some of the social events, so please be sure to bring a government-issued I.D. for verification if you plan to drink on-site.


Where can we access info for the hotel room block?

The link for the room block will be available via the Eventbrite confirmation page/email that appears after you've completed purchase. We want to give priority to those who have secured a ROR18 ticket first.

Here's more info on the room block:

- Room block rate will be $164 per night, plus applicable taxes and fees.*This room rate is only guaranteed for rooms booked within the ROR 2018 room block.
- Once the room block is sold out, there may still be additional rooms available at the event hotel that may be at a different/higher rate.
- To reserve your room, you will need to provide a credit card. Your card will not be charged at time of booking--it is only needed to hold your room.
- The direct link for the ROR18 room block will be first available via your Eventbrite confirmation page/email. In other words, you will need to secure a ticket for the event in order to access the link.

What can I bring into the event?

Even though we will have a bookseller on-site selling titles by our attending authors, you will still be allowed to bring in books from home for the signing itself. For author J.R. Ward, we will have a 5 book limit per line visit. NOTE: We are guaranteeing that each attendee will have the opportunity to go through J.R. Ward's line at least once. There is a possibilty that you can go through her line more than once, but we cannot guarantee that we can get everyone through the line multiple times. Please plan accordingly.

What's the refund policy?

We will offer a FULL REFUND through June 1st, 2018. After June 1st we will not be able to process refunds.


How will the Waitlist process work?

If/When the event sells out, the Eventbrite waitlist will automatically kick in. You can add yourself to the waitlist by filling out the required info (name and email address), and you're good to go! Unfortunately, you will not be able to see what number you are in "line", but we will notify you (via email) if we’re able to accommodate your ticket request. Once you've been notified, you will have 2 days to complete your ticket transaction, otherwise we will move to the next person in line. **Each entry on the waitlist entitles that person to TWO (2) tickets if needed.
