Authors After Dark 2011

Authors After Dark 2011 Master of Ceremonies was none other then Larissa Ione and was Co-hosted by Sylvia Day, Melissa Schroeder, Bridget Midway, Cat Johnson, Kristen Painter and Samantha Sommersby! The event was reader intensive, allowing guests to hangout with and meet their favorite and new favorite authors! AAD 2011 in Philadelphia reached its registration cap of 300 attendees.

And in its first year, attendees participated in the Bookie Awards, the first industry awards nominated and voted for by readers and bloggers alone! All the presenters were bloggers, readers and from book clubs! View the 2011 Bookie Award winners here!

New in 2011: Mythos Masquerade

Attendees joined Larissa Ione along with a Pantheon of authors for a magical and mystical night of Gods, Goddesses and Mythological beings! Many came as their favorite God, goddess or being and danced the night away, taking pictures and joining the costume contest!

Ticketed Events:

In 2011 AAD did something different. We offered special ticketed events. These events had limited attendance and the money for the events went to charity. Ticketed events ran from $5.00 to $20.00. Each event was limited to 10-50 people.
