Coming 2011 to AAD: the Bookie Awards!

Want yet another reason to attend AAD 2010 this year? How about helping to usher in a new romance award? That’s right this year’s attendees will be the sole nominators of the Bookie Awards!

The Bookie Awards is a by readers award, nominated and voted by READERS, the ones that really matter! The Bookie Awards will be given at Authors After Dark 2011 in a fantastic ceremony Friday afternoon.

Winners will receive a fantastic award, a specially designed and made bracelet with a sterling silver book charm on it, as well as a certificate.

Readers at the event this year will be nominating books from 2010 in categories such as Best Vampire novel, Best Werewolf novel, Best historical Novel, Best M/M Novel, Best Erotic Romance, several categories of best short stories, Best debut author, best series in a number of categories, Best Hero, Best heroine, Best couple and many others!

At AAD this year we will be giving out ballots, and then in October we will be announcing the nominees as chosen by YOU the reader (well if your at the con that is) and November we will be opening voting for the readers to pick the crème of the crop.

Interested in helping us make award ceremony history? Well you gotta attend the event this year! Registration is still open at Yep, just another reason why you WANT to come to the con this year!
