AAD's hotel for 2012 is 119 a night DOUBLE occupancy. Its actually the cheapest room rate NOLA has ever given for a con centered on bourbon of our size. This doesnt include Suites (which have their own price, and limited availability)

And just and FYI... AAD is where you get more bang for your buck. AAD is cheaper, FEEDS you actual edible meals, you get More books and goodies free and theres no "looking" for people. Everyone knows the event is about the readers and authors interacting. Authors dont hide at AAD like they do at RT... because AAD is a lot less assuming.

You know... Authors hiding was not my experience at RT...

I felt like they hunted me through the hotel like big game. But then, I think there were only about 50-100 "Readers" at the con the year I went. The large "Reader" activities were usually stuffed full of authors and aspiring authors, and the smaller ones were only about 40 people.

Personally, I don't want to have to flee to my room to keep people from trying to pitch their writing to me. I'm a reader, not an editor or agent.

The meals are filling and delicious!

Thanks for all the info. I have only attended one convention and had a great time, but want to get out and network a little.

But I would never hunt down readers. Ick. Sorry you had that experience.

I have a story on my backburner (although I hope to have it completed by AAD 2012) that has part of it's backdrop in NOLA....plus it's on my bucket list of places to visit. My 15 year old is mad at me because she wants to come with and can't. A few more years and she can come to them all!

I think New Orleans is such a great backdrop for paranormal stories. It's going to be super going on the fieldtrips with the authors.

Yeaaahh....I told her she could become my assistant on convention trips once she turned 18 and she told me she wasn't going to the icky sex parties EVER. LOL Glad she has such a great view of mom's career choice.

She'll change her tune when a very awesome trip comes up I'm sure and I shall have a LOT of fun making her eat her words Smile

Heh.

Don't tell her that the icky sex parties get more fun. She'll figure it out on her own when she's older.

I'm reminded of a quote.

"Sex is wet. If you're not ready to get wet, don't have sex."

I suppose "wet" could equate to "icky"...

Under $200 I can handle......I thought it was going to be way more since I read somewhere that it included some meals.

I'm with Sariah, I thought registration would be way more expensive b/c of the included meals (which I think is awesome for AAD to include)!

So probably a stupid question but my job is not very flexible at times and I would like to attend the convention but what would the cancellation policy be since you have to sign up in 2011 for the 2012 convention, not sure if I could get the vacation that far in advance
