Giant Book Fair

Meet more than 600 authors who will autograph books, posters and bookmarks. Bring your “keepers” and have them signed!

This year we have combined our Giant Book Fair with our E-Book/Indie Expo to provide a great new merged experience. Find all of your favorite authors in one place!

The Saturday Giant Book Fair ticket is included in the full general convention registration fee.

This event is also open to the public and can be purchased as an individual ticket for just the Giant Book Fair. You can purchase a ticket at the door the day of the event. Pre-ordered tickets will be picked up at the hotel on the day of the Giant Book Fair.

You may bring in your books from home to get them autographed, however, they must be checked in and stamped (invisible ink so no damage to your books) before you enter the book fair. Also only two books from home per author are allowed.

Dream team assembled for the Tiger's Curse movie! Paramount pictures partners with producers Mary Parent and Raphael Kryszek!

My announcement: 

Hi Everyone!
I have been getting tons of emails, tweets, and notes from my fans asking about the latest Tiger's Curse news that came out the other day: that Paramount Pictures has optioned the film rights to the book. Well I can tell you officially that this is true, and I am SO thrilled. As you all know from previous posts and discussions, we have been working on this for a while and I couldn't be more happy with the dream team assembled to bring my books to life on screen. I have no doubt that Paramount Pictures along with producers Mary Parent and Raphael Kryszek will make this into a beautiful, amazing film. Thanks from the bottom of my heart to every single one of you who has continued to read my books. Without all of you, this would never have been possible. We are in kind of a top-secret mode right now as the movie develops but I cannot wait to share more news with you as soon as I can!

Announcement from producer Raffi Kryszek on the Facebook Fan Page 

Hey TC fans!

I can’t stay online long but I just wanted to say a few words and give as much of an update as I can on the film adaptation. There will even be a little sneak-peak treat at the end.

First off let me just say how grateful we are at Ineffable Pictures that Colleen has given the world the Tiger Saga. Although most people have only read the first book or two, I can tell you first hand that each book only gets better!!!

As for the movie adaptation, all I can say right now is that the development process is well on its way and it’s going to be BIG!!! Unfortunately I can’t say more since we are in the middle of developing elements that have not been finalized. Besides, you guys know you love the suspense. 

What I can say is that we completely understand and love all of you, the TC fans, so we will make information available to you as soon as possible. Be sure to follow Colleen on twitter (@ColleenHouck) for the mostup-to-date information about the movie.

It’s also going to be our intention to include the fan base as much as possible in the development of the film, so stay tuned to @ColleenHouck for upcoming polls and surveys where you can provide your input on actors, writers, and filmmakers.

Now before I go I want to leave you with a little treat. Our artists have been hard at work on some top-secret concept art for the film. But now for the first time I’d like to officially unveil one of the pieces of concept art. Just go to our website (www.ineffablepictures.com) and see it on the home page. I hope you all like it.

Now if you haven’t already done so, go purchase Tiger’s Quest!!!!

RT Book Reviews Tiger's Quest 

June 2011 - "Forget vampires and werewolves, tigers are the new hottest thing. The second book in Houck's Tiger's Curse series features a love triangle, passion and nonstop action.

RT Book Reviews Tiger's Curse

January 2011 - "One of the best books I have ever read. An ultimate thrill ride. A roller-coaster ride from beginning to end, this book has action, history, poetry, romance, magic — everything you could ever want. It is a book J.K. Rowling wishes she wrote, one with so much passion and thrills you won’t be able to put it down. This saga is going to be one of the best yet" - Meera Patel, RT Book Reviews
