The event is a for readers by authors event, committed to furthering the reader/ author relationship. we are a non profit organization (meaning Myself and my staff make no money off this event) and have the support and sponsorship for 5 of the big 6 publishers and a slew of small press publishers.
AAD is an event that is run on the philosophy that Without our readers, we would all be out of a job, and we strive to make the event fun and unique for all the attendees.
AAD is the only con in romance that has an in house tattoo artist, an in house corsetier and is sponsored by a different makeup company each year (for 2013 its Lime Crime Makeup). We have tons of panels, parties, events and opportunities for featured authors, and that is what we are looking for!
