Authors After Dark

Now that things have settled, I wanted to post about my experience at Authors After Dark in Secaucus, NJ.

Let me begin by saying that I had the pleasure of meeting and mingling with some wonderful authors, readers, editors, and bloggers. The crowd was intimate, and I believe the ratio of authors to readers was practically 50:50.

Some noteworthy faces that I had the opportunity to meet were, Joey W. Hill, Jacquelyn Frank, Leanna Renee Hieber, Eliza Gayle, JoLynne Valerie, and Cat Johnson--just to name a few.

The event was coordinated by author, Stella Price, who is about as wonderful as they come! I believe this event was unlike any I've ever attended. While the panels were informative and delightful, the vendors were unique--ranging from jewelry, books, buttons, beauty items, and a TATTOO ARTIST! That's right, the highlight of the vendors was the tattoo artist who was always busy applying ink to a fresh canvas.

In addition to the above, there was a masquerade ball, author sponsored dinners, after hours parties in hotel rooms, and TONS of give aways. I think I walked away with twenty five free books that I can't wait to dive into. But, I walked away with great new friends, and an experience that I look forward to repeating next year, when the conference moves to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! If you have the opportunity to attend, I highly recommend the Authors After Dark Romance Convention.

After hours party in our hotel room. Do you know of such a convention where the readers hang out with the authors in THIS kind of setting?
