Authors After Dark on Bourbon Street!

AAD Burbon StreetWelcome to Bourbon Street! New Orleans has a fascinating history and this summer, a group of enthusiastic authors and readers will decent at the Royal Sonesta Hotel for the Authors After Dark convention.

I cannot wait to go to New Orleans, to experience the culture and craziness, and because I couldn’t wait, I joined up with Larissa’s Bookish Life to feature a bunch of the Small Press authors who’ll be attending Authors After Dark as well.

Between now and Fat Tuesday (the 21st), Larissa and I will be featuring 27 authors as they give us their impressions of New Orleans through the eyes of one of their characters.  Check out who’ll be visiting Larissa’s and I:

Abigail Barnette Cat Johnson
Trinity Blacio Stacey Kennedy
Boone Brux Rosalie Lario
Melanie Card Lacie Nation
Kris Cook Kris Norris
Teresa D’Amario Sophie Oak
Jae Lynne Davies Melissa Schroeder
Gail Donnelly & Robyn Mackenzie Arianna Skye/Sidney Ayers
Mari Freeman Julia Tabot
KT Grant BA Tortuga
Bronwyn Green Beth Williamson
Tilly Green

As the authors visit LE and Larissa’s Bookish Life, we’ll update the above table with links to their posts, which is important to know.  Some of these authors have offered up copies of their novels for contests and what better way to try an author than to get a novel for free. More importantly, you’ll want to make sure you stop by as Larissa and I will be giving away two $25 gift cards to All Romance Books and all you have to do is to stop by one and see what these fabulous authors have to offer.  Two winners will be selected from all the comments on the 27 Bourbon Street posts, which means you have 27 chances.  Larissa and I hope we can introduce you to a new author while we visit Bourbon Street.

Even though we won’t be giving any additional entries, you can still help support the authors by sharing this event and their articles on your blog, Twitter, Facebook, or anywhere you can. After all, the more people who are aware of these fabulous authors will ensure we get more fabulous stories.

The contest will stay open until February 28th at which time we’ll determine the winners with help from the snazzy new plug-in I have, the Research Randomizer and the List Randomizer.

I have not been contacting winners, so you will need to check back to see if you’ve won.

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.


  1. I will be attending AAD also, Can’t wait! I have read some of the Authors on the list, Hoping to be able to read at least one book of every attending Author. Sounds like a great contest!

  2. Thank you and Larissa for hosting such a fun event to get us all ready for August and accepting my Scottish Shifter’s snippet! He doesn’t travel much beyond the Highlands, but I think he’s going to love New Orleans :-)
