I've been having issues with authors contacting me as well. I've contacted the following at least 3 times (even via the AAD forums) and I still haven't heard anything.

Diana C NEVER GOT ANYTHING FROM YOU
Cat G Not sure.
Kayleigh J NEVER GOT ANYTHING FROM YOU
Jessica J Not sure.
TJ Michaels HAVING ISSUES WITH HER EMAIL IN GENERAL
Brynn P Check her out on twitter (easiest)
Damon S I cant get a hold of him a lot of the time
Sandy S Check her out on twitter
LA Witt Check her out on twitter


Much like Book Faery, I'm starting to lose patience and if I didn't have to have a certain number of small press to do for the con, I wouldn't be wasting this much time. Is there any way to figure out if they've received my messages and are just not interested?

Hope that helps. the ones that I know never got anything is because I talk to them daily... I have asked them to repeatedly check their spam to make sure. For Diana, one out of like 6 gets through. You can email her at diana . castilleja @ gmail . com

and kay: kayleigh . jamison @ gmail . com

I've contacted both Diana and Kayleigh at the emails you've provided and via facebook as well, so I don't know why they haven't recevied anything from me. Have they checked their spam filters? Have they logged into Facebook recently? If they're not getting my emails, nor checking their facebook, there's nothing else I can do. I've even tried contacting via the boards and they're not responding that way either.

Have you tried Teresa D'Amario or Abigail Barnette (Jennfier Armintrout)? I know Teresa is generally all for the chance to spotlight.

I'll admit that it's a boatload of work, but I also know that my readers enjoy having the opportunity to discover writers new to them.

Infact...

I have had several authors contact us about the event because they are really interested in meeting and working with the bloggers so...

Sadly, I wish I could say that. I've had authors back out at the last minute, never reply to an email (whether it be positive or negative) and agree to do something and then stand me up. Granted, not all of them were like that, some have been fabulous; I just can't say that for all of them.

Would it be possible to allow all the featured authors the ability to contact us for spotlights for Savannah? I don't know what it was, but I honestly felt like I had to beg most of the small press authors just to give me the time of day. I'm not used to an author not being willing to do book promotion, especially when it's free, so this was really frustrating to me. I'm not saying that we shouldn't be contacting them as well, but it just seems like there were some authors who were really grateful for the chance to visit the site and others who didn't want to be bothered with it. I would rather use my time to help promote those who want it, and enjoy doing it, instead of feeling like I have to beg authors to be on the site in order to fill an obligation.
