Back for the third time, the Sydney Author Event
is one of the only multi-author book signings held
in NSW. Welcoming authors from the world over,
the event focuses on bringing together fans and
authors in an arena whereby we can all share our
love of all things fictional.
We pride ourselves on showcasing the very best in
both international and home-grown self-published
and independently published romance authors.
Alongside the signing itself, 2018 will also see us
connections and share super-secret ARC
information. There will also be some amazing door prizes,
so if you’re a blogger you won’t want to miss it.
Join our Facebook Group to be kept up to date with all information pertaining to the event, pre-orders, and giveaways. Tickets for the signing have all sold out, but if you missed out do not despair because there is a thread in the group for fans to on-sell their tickets for face value.
The Sydney Author Event has also partnered up with the NSW Firefighters to raise money for the Burns unit at Westmead Children’s Hospital. Our previous events have seen totals of in excess of $12,000 raised for the unit, and we love that our attendees and authors give us so much support for this amazing cause.
Australian book signings have become some of the most unmissable events, we really do hope to see you at #SAE2018.
As a lover of books, romance, and people, SAE is like heaven for me. Organising this event is no mean feat, but seeing the fans and authors come together as one big family makes it totally worth it. With this being our third event, there has been a lot of pressure to make #SAE2018 as good as its predecessors, but I really think that the mix of authors, the special touches here and there, and the fact that so many of you have shown your excitement and enthusiasm already means that #SAE2018 will be the best year by far.
I seriously cannot wait to see each and every one of you who take the time to support our event; whether it’s by attending or by following us on social media. There would be no event without you and your love for this amazing genre, and I am thankful every day for this community who have embraced me and my love for all things HEA.
Kristine is a book lover, lipstick enthusiast, and selfie aficionado. By day she’s an employment consultant and by night she escapes into fictional worlds filled with romance and HEA’s. Meeting the Authors that have brought to life her favourite heroes and heroines has become one of her greatest joys. SAE was founded to bring together the best of the romance literature world and provide a relaxed and intimate environment that would allow bloggers, readers and authors alike to meet and interact. As our third biennial event approaches we are even more determined to raise the bar and exceed expectations.
Hey guys! I’m Renee, owner of Signature Swag - where I get to mix my book and crafty tinkering hobbies together. I'm a mum of three and wife of an amazing guy, Paul – who you will actually meet this time round! I officially joined the team in 2016 after helping as a volunteer at in 2014. Being a part of the team for this third event is so exciting! Meeting the people responsible for bringing life to my favourite characters is an absolute joy I never want to end. Watching the fans walk into the Ivy Sunroom with smiles on their faces and then leaving a few hours later with even BIGGER grins is the payoff for the hours spent organising this event. And let’s face it, who wouldn’t smile when in a room with fellow book lovers, the brilliant authors that create our fantasies, and some of the nicest Firefighters around? All the while knowing we are raising money for the kids and adults in the Burns Unit at Westmead Hospital. Being a part of the walk through at the unit in September and seeing the work that the staff do for the burns survivors was humbling. Everything we do on the day for Sydney Author Event is for fun. Every reason behind the fun is for charity. Looking forward to making 2018 the best one yet!
ABOUT the Organisers
Sydney Author Event is without question my favourite Australian event. SAE is the most well organised and enjoyable signing I have had the pleasure of attending, and I intend to keep coming back as long as they'll have me.
Thank you to the organisers for creating a fun, inclusive, and vibrant event!

Sydney Author Event is a TOP NOTCH event run by people who genuinely care and who I trust implicitly.

The first signing event I attended as a reader was SAE2014. It was shortly before I published my debut novel and I fangirled so hard, I nearly hyperventilated. In my hometown of Sydney, I met Samantha Young, Tarryn Fisher and Jodi Ellen Melpas along with many other authors I admired. I remember thinking to myself that one day I would be an attending author. It was a pipe dream that became a reality thanks to the opportunity afforded me at SAE2016 as the debut Breakout Author. I cried when I received the phone call and had to pinch myself often. I had three novels published and was building a solid and loyal readership, but meeting readers face to face at such a high-profile event was invaluable. I enjoyed every second of the day and was so grateful for the amazing opportunity.
