So We have been getting a very loaded question here at AAD/ Romance Ink… That question is, WHY AS AN AUTHOR SHOULD *I* DO THE NOVEL EXPERIENCE?
I’m glad people are asking that question. There are a TON of reasons why, as an author you should do it, but first and foremost this: TNEE was created to give EVERYONE, traditionally published, indie published and small press published the arena to promote and sell their books in an environment that’s fair for everyone, and won’t break an author’s bank.
There is a serious need for an event that doesn’t limit who can sign to traditionally published. Readers don’t care HOW a book is published, only that it IS and there is new stuff to read. All authors have the right to get out there to reach new readers, and TNEE is one of those events that is striving to get readers and authors together.
This event was created for YOU, to give authors every opportunity to hit readers. We chose Las Vegas because it’s a great party town, you can work, and play and connect with the readers you have for very little money.
The CVB for Vegas is even giving us some AMAZING pricing on party buses, events and Shows… so Vegas is even MORE affordable with this event. And we also have the CHEAPEST room rate available at a strip hotel for ANY event in lit…. You can’t beat that!
Some other awesome stuff?
TNEE will never take your money from your book sales. EVER. We are a nonprofit, and have made the event affordable enough that we can get lots of authors in, to pay for the event itself. We will never charge you for your books because our bookseller will never expect to sell your books for you. Event is 200$ for a table for Saturday, and gets you and your assistant in for the con, and access to the Green room (food and Booze all day on Sat!) and your name on all promo goodies (provided you sign on before January 1st as we start printed promo then).
Room rates are actually between 149 and 189 a night depending on on peak/ off peak and what kinda rooms you get. They DO have suites, cottages and villas at special prices but you must already be registered to get them!
As TNEE is in its infancy, we will be working with the authors and the publishers that are interested in making this event something amazing. The hotel has offered some prime options (especially as we will be there for more than one year) to help mold this into an event that can rival what’s out there now. We are SUPER excited to have the options, and can’t wait to see what both author groups and publishers come up with.
As of right now, we have over 300 readers signed on for it, and more coming every day. We are expecting between 1400-2000 people over the span of the event and we have room for 500 authors in Las Vegas, and we think YOU would have a great time meeting readers and selling books. We know that the CVB is is already advertizing this event for us, and they have already helped to get our bookseller!
Oh and did I mention… Readers go FREE. That’s right, FREE. They can either WIN a VIP ticket or pay for one, and EVERY author attending gets the opportunity to give away a VIP ticket to their readers to get them excited to go. But I mean… its VEGAS so who isn’t excited to go right?
This is the cheapest biggest signing and party event in literature, one that is fostering a good time for little money. Why not try it out, become part of an event that puts you and the readers first.
Registration is already open and names will be added to the website weekly starting Sept. 1st. Our website has more info, and the link to register for the event. Room reservation are also already open, and the info for it will be in your conformation email from the ticket site.
