NEWSLETTER: You agree to be placed on the Killer Nashville mailing list to receive occasional updates, newsletters, and promotions from Killer Nashville, the Claymore Award, and other Killer Nashville related programs.

BOOK SIGNING NOTE: The more flexible you are the greater your chance of being able to sign books. Every effort will be made to accommodate your schedule, but no guarantees apply. Registration also does not guarantee an opportunity to sign. Please understand that if this information is received after July 1st, Barnes & Noble will progressively have a harder time ordering copies of your books to sign.

Authors wishing to consign books with Barnes & Noble should contact Robby Bryan at (615) 377-9979.

Barnes & Noble and Killer Nashville will accommodate all authors as space permits. Filling out this form does not guarantee a book signing or a panel position. You will be notified before the conference of your panel position(s) and/or book signing time(s).

AUTHORS: Please include an announcement on your website that you will be appearing at Killer Nashville, with a link to Killer Nashville. When panels and signing times are assigned, please include that information on your website as well so that your personal fan base will know when to see you specifically.

Consistent with other national conferences such as the New York MWA Symposium, all events may be taped and sold to raise money for future Killer Nashville events. Panelists’ recorded audio and visual appearances, including use of their voice, name, image, and likeness, are considered a charitable donation for the benefit and continuance of Killer Nashville. Regarding media appearances and coverage, all parties will seek to accommodate as many requests as possible. Final determination to be made by show producers and media editors.

By participating in any offering by Killer Nashville (i.e., conference, contest, catalog show, etc.), you agree you have read and understood everything contained herein.
