I lucked out when I registered for AAD 2011 in Philly right after I registered for the con. I couldn't believe it when the room block was full about a month later. I hadn't experienced anything like this when I went to Lora Leigh's RAW or Ellora's Cave RomantiCon last year. So I have definitely learned that it is wise to book your hotel reservation ASAP.

there is a reason for that...

both those others say they are all about the readers, but they dont have a cap, so they dont have to get a specific room block. AAD has to because we cap, in order to make sure that readers get quality time with all the authors. Also you will notice that ALL the authors are accessible, and theres no hidden events or room parties because this is about the reader, not the author's ego.

Im all about fair... and AAD reflects that. You will see both small press and NYTBS's in the same party and room... because its all about the readers, and the ability to sell books.

This sounds like it will be the ultimate reader/author experience. I can't wait. I have heard so many good things about AAD. You do a super great job with this, Stella. Thank you.

Hi I just wanted to let everyone know I just made my reservations for next year. When you call reservations mention it is a group and then you can make your reservations. It's 119 a night she said. Laughing

Actually, Stella asked us not to make reservations until she opens registration for the convention and announces the hotel is ready. The hotel isn't supposed to allow group room blocks to be booked until September.

let me Summup.

AAD is NOT like other cons like RT or Dragon Con. Jumping the Gun to get a room only does one thing, Put you in a position to not be accepted to come to 2012. I dont care who you are. AAD has a cap, and registration and reservations open at the same time to ensure those that are early to register get their rooms. PLEASE go and cancel your reservation IMMEDIATELY (And yes, I will know if you didnt) or run the risk of not attending. This is a FAIR con and it is NOT FAIR to get a room early.

Thank you.

Im a firm believer in fair... and theres a LOT of things in this industry thats NOT fair so I strive for AAD to be something people can count on to not have hidden agendas. Im not kidding when I say AAD is a reader focus (hell i work my ass off to make sure we give away the MOST books, goodies and opportunities). NO other con in Romance can say they give a fair shake to all authors who attend to attend panels, put on parties and be part of the major events. NONE>

If you have any questions about the way Stella watches out for us, check the loots pictures from previous AADs... this is the only con I've ever been to where you get a book (or two!) at each meal.

And you know... meals. Like actual food that actual humans can actually eat... even with dietary restrictions. It's amazing. (I have a vegetarian friend who almost cried because she could eat at every meal at AAD, unlike other cons.)

*blush* Yes... I make sure everyone can eat, actually 40% of our attendees are vegetarians, so its a major part of our menus.

I have to admit that the way stella runs everything (literally, it seems!) -- & hearing/learning about it here has only made me more determined to make AAD my first con! Stella- you are amazing! I can't wait for AAD NOLA next year!

this year's event is almost 5000 books... Net year will be a bit more then that. Add in a HUGE welcome bag filled with promo and premium items, door prizes (like candles, tshirts, posters) and author given prizes, AAD REALLY is the ONLY reader focused con.

others SAY they are... but trust me... they arent.
