PostSubject: What panels do YOU want to attend?   Mon Apr 25, 2011 10:14 pm

Since we are so early in getting 2012 together, I'm looking for ideas from YOU, the attendee, on what kind of panels you want to see or participate in? Bear in mind, we will try to accommodate everything we talk about here but we do have only so much time in the day!

So? Have at me!

Hmmm...

I'd love to see some more non-traditional romance genre panels in addition to the usuals (I think you have some of these in 2011 already) futuristic romance, Steampunk romance, erotica as a growing genre, GLBT romance.

I'd also love to hear more from authors who've decided to crossover to YA or other genres, and what they think the genre crossover brings to each of the genres they write in.

I totally forgot.

I want to attend a Steampunk rumble. Face off between the Victorian purists and the Psuedo-sci-fi punks. Smile

I would actually love to attend a Panel with a Voodoo Priest/ess and learn more about this amazing Religion and way of life. I think even doing an outting with them would be fantastic.

Live with passion,

I think that might be a bit outta some comfort zones, and Voodoo isnt to be taken lightly, especially in NOLA. I dont think we are going to do "interest" panels so much as we are going to do panels on books and writing and such... its safer and will give us more time to hangout in the city.

Love to learn about various cultures and religion however it's understandable if this is a little out of the scope for AAD 2012.

I love your event so I'm good with whatever you provide! Though remember, for the Cabana Boy/male Vampires giveaway, I'm first in line.

Look forward to seeing you at AAD 2011

Live with passion,

Hmm...Let's see here...
What a Face Well in NOLA we gotta have a ghost hunt or ghost hunting tour or whatever they call it.
Do you know which hotel you're looking at for 2012? Email me, my cousin is the executive assistant to the CEO of Innisfree Hospitality. They own the Holiday Inn franchise among others. They have a gorgeous hotel right next to Caesar's Casino. At least I think it was Caesar's...it was Christmas and I was pickled...
~I'd like to hear a panel on the evolution of a plot bunnie into a book. There are so many different creative processes and I find it fascinating as a reader to hear how a book was conceived and written.
~It would be great to hear from some industry leaders about their opinions of the future of the industry how that eSales and paper sales have almost equaled. (take that with a grain of salt. I personally think places like the Sony Reader store and others have purposely jacked up the pricing on eBooks)
~A panel with authors detailing their mental relationship with their own favorite character would be really cool. But you'd have to make it sound less crazy than I did. My only excuse is that I have not had enough coffee yet today.
~And of course no Con would be complete without some significant nod to the YA genre as the rising star in genres. I had a thought about it the other day. The YA genre as a whole is the hot new genre but it's paranormal heavy. There's SO MUCH out there and it's mostly paranormal and Gothic (the historical definition of Gothic, not the modern one) in nature. So I was wondering what authors and publishers think about that.
~A panel on piracy and how severely it affects authors and publishers would be good.

That's all I got for now! sunny

Kisses, Hugs and Spanx,
Luci

Oh, but having the hotel turn one of the rooms we contracted for into an office without notice or planning an alternate was just so... special. We should do that every year... or maybe they could just accidentally doublebook us with a wedding... or...

No, nevermind. Change hotel chains.

Yeah I heard about that. At the time I was thinking about calling my cousin and asking for her help but figured I'd save it for something really big. But the Royal Sonesta is nice. I think we've stayed there once before.

How about something like out of the box promotion ideas. What you can do? And what readers and bloggers want to see?

I just realized, it would be fun to have a chat with the authors who use NOLA as a location - what specificly drew them, what they researched vs made up.

Since I have never been to NOLA, it would be very interesting to see the places from the books. To have the authors talk about the places would definitly be an added bonus!

Jacki...

Unlike ANY OTHER CON, AAD does have a GLBT track of panels. NO OTHER ROMANCE CON (Except the GLBT CONS) have them, AND we also have Book giveaways as well.

So no ROMCON wouldnt have it because Readers happiness isnt their focus, neither would RT.

We have been working with the GLBT pubs for three years now, and the attendees as well as the pubs love it.

WOOT! I'm so excited because I love the LBGT genre!

I'm even more excited because AAD is in Philly, which is a short 3-hour drive from me! Very Happy

(Also, I usually don't use my first name...)
