Registration March 6, 2017 Update

Hello Everyone!

We have some news. Reader spots are dwindling down, with less than 15 spots left until we hit capacity.  We may have to close registration before it hits May 31st, when standard registration closes.


Many have asked us how many total spots do we have? Our response?

"It's TOP SECRET!"

Not really, but we don't want to let the number to overshadow the goal of the Christian Fiction Readers Retreat. We can tell you is that our goal is to keep the author-reader ratio as low as possible. That way, we can be assured we keep CFRR intimate, allowing for personal author-reader interactions.

If you're still thinking about attending CFRR, I pray that you'll have an answer soon. Remember, you MUST pay for a ticket and THEN fill out the registration form. If we don't have either, your registration is NOT complete. Thank you!


Another update is regarding rooms at the venue. As of Monday of this week, we've added 10 more rooms, and it will be the last addition. I know some have already taken advantage of the discount, but I find the ease of it being at the event venue the biggest pro in taking up a room. So head over to the lodging tab to book your room if it's still available.



CFRRAddicts tally coming soon...

Reader Registration is NOW Available!

Hello everyone! Today's the DAY!!!



Yep! Reader registration is now officially open! Head over to our Registration page on the tab above and go register!

Here's some simple facts:
  1. Registration fee is posted for individuals for standard registration period and a late period.
  2. There is a group rate available for those attending with friends. Group rate is only available for 4 tickets at a time. 
  3. Registration is only complete if you "buy tickets" and fill out the registration form.
  4. Registration will close once capacity is reached, even if it's before the deadline.

Why I should complete my registration as soon as possible?
  1. We've received lots of great feedback from last year's inaugural event, and we anticipate a higher interest this year.
  2. If it's anything like author registration, you'll need to get jumping.  We had to close registration in less than 2 days of opening author registration.
  3. Room blocks are currently filled at well. I'll need to check in with the hotel to see if we can increase that. 

We really hope to see you this summer! And don't forget to participate in the #CFRRAddicts game to gain more entries to the grand prize at CFRR!
