For those of you who do not wish to be on live TV or Radio have no fear. They will be given a list way before hand of consenting authors and the waivers. Members of the press will not be disruptive in any way to the event and will be using the upmost of discretion. Our goal is showcase the event and the amazing Attendees.
We are at the final stages of negations will various Corporate sponsors who will be having a presence at the event as well.
At the close of the event we will have our official picture taken as a group.
