Shameless18: Meet The Smut Fairies!

It’s time to get to know the Smut Fairies and Staff of Shameless!

These women help me pull off this massive event, and without them, there wouldn’t be a Shameless Book Con. I can’t thank them enough for all of their hard work, time, and effort!

🏖 Adrian 🍷

Official Smut 🧚‍♀️

This is Adrian. She’s been a Smut Fairy for just about as long as Shameless was Smut. Adrian lives in Jacksonville Beach and worries all of us with her sun loving. She loves a good and/or cheap glass of wine, reading New Adult romances, and taking cruises.

At Shameless Book Con, Adrian is in charge of all the hotel stuff like guest rooms, managing the tables and layout, and being the main contact for about half of the authors. LISTEN: without Adrian, this whole event would be pretty shitty. I can’t imagine doing this event without her, so please make her happy and help me keep her liquored up. She also likes to yell out loud when anything that goes awry, “IT’S FINE.” It’s a good thing because Adrian does make sure it’s fine.

🧜🏼‍♀️ Angela 👩🏻‍🎨

Official Smut 🧚‍♀️

This is Angela. (Not to be confuse with me, Angie. I’m never Angela unless my mom is yelling at me. So if you need an Angela, it’s her.) She’s an artist – like she went to college to be one and everything – and a jewelry maker with an Etsy store. Angela is also a white collar corporate lady at a big-time firm in NYC.

Angela is always busy, and she likes it that way. Even with all of her twice-daily exercising and family shenanigans and meal-planning, she makes time to be one-half of the party planning committee for the Smut Gala. Angela also manages to be the main contact for the other half of the signing authors, and she’s the gatekeeper for all of our author invitations. Without Angela, approximately zero authors would be at Shameless Book Con. Help me keep her happy with many rounds of thank-yous and gifts of anything mermaid.

YOU ARE MY ROCKSTAR. Thank you for all of your help and tireless effort, Ang!

💄 Christine 🐶

Official Smut 🧚‍♀️

This is Christine. She’s impeccably stylish, and always somehow seems to put herself together even the morning after a long night of seeing her vision of the Smut Gala through to the end. As half of the Gala planning committee, Christine devotes her extra time – after her 2 day jobs – to making endless lists of ideas to make our after party the ONLY after party you look forward to attending.

Christine takes the Showcase authors under both her wings and makes it her mission to guide them into the world of author signings. She is also slightly obsessive about keeping up with all of the Facebook groups, pages, messages, and requests, so without her, our little operation would shrivel and die a painful virtual death. When you see Christine online or in person, don’t be intimidated by her awesomeness; or maybe do because she is just that amazing. Tell her hi, thank you, or bow in her presence. She likes all three.

⚽️ Marissa 👽

Official Smut 🧚‍♀️

This is Marissa. She’s a Smut Fairy to the core, and reads some very weird books. Marissa will read pretty much any PNR. (Think: tentacles, aliens, time travelers.) She’s the one on our Facebook pages who shares the free books every day and makes sure the Release Day calendar is up to date.

At Shameless Book Con, Marissa will be the one doing most of the social media postings, videos, photos, and chatting, so give her a “like” as often as you can. You may not see her over there in the corner being all shy, but look out for her and give her hugs. She loves hugs.

✂️ Jean 👫

Official Smut 🧚‍♀️

This is Jean. She’s a new Official Smut Fairy, but she’s been in the Shameless orbit for years. Jean will take on every favor and task to detriment of her sleep pattern, but she will always get her shit done. As a seamstress and theater runner extraordinaire, Jean will probably have a hand in making and/or customizing all of our costumes for the Smut Gala.

It will be a miracle if Jean is able to show up to #Shameless18 without a scooter, wheelchair, or crutches because Jean can be bit of a klutz. Please make sure she sits more than she stands. As the Smut Fairy in charge of registration, Jean is one of the first people you’ll see when you check in for the event. Though I think she’ll probably be busy somewhere doing something, and you’ll have to seek her out because she definitely won’t be sitting still.

💃 Alma 🧛🏻‍♂️

This is Alma. She is slightly insane, but in the best, most adorable way. You will hear Alma before you see her, but as soon as you see her, you won’t forget her. Alma is our official Spirit Animal, dressed in whatever costume we give her to wear, roaming the lines and the signing making people happy. Look for Alma and her tray of merch goodies and to buy your raffle tickets.

Alma makes friends and boyfriends wherever she goes. Literally. If you’re in need of a little pick-me-up at any Shameless event, find Alma and she’ll hug you into happiness. It might hurt a little, but you’ll feel better.

🐱 Kim 🐺

This is Kim. She’s a Philly girl to the core; just ask her to talk and you’ll hear what I mean. Kim is obsessed with men under the age of 25 and proudly and forever on Team Jacob. She will also cut a bitch if a bitch even thinks of crossing her friends.

You’ll find Kim doing all kinds of things around Shameless Book Con, including being the personal handler of our Spirit Animal, Alma. (If you know Alma, you know why she needs Kim.)

Kim is also in charge of keeping our hard-working volunteers in check, manning the Info Desk at the signing, and being all-around amazing. You might not recognize her this year, but when you do, she’ll happily accept all kinds of personal-space-invading love.

🐙 Malia 🚨

Official Smut 🧚‍♀️

This is Malia. She’s one of our newest Smut Fairies and is killing it with her recommendations. Though she has adopted Ursula the Sea Witch as her alternate personality, Malia doesn’t need to steal your voice. If you’re ever in her city in North Carolina and need the help of a 911 operator, her sexy voice will be the one to talk you through birthing your own baby. Malia will be at Shameless Book Con to help run everything that needs running and make sure everyone acts right. If you don’t act right, you’ll meet her Sea Witch side.

🧘🏽‍♀️ Marlena 🌸

Official Smut 🧚‍♀️

This is Marlena. She’s a brand new Smut Fairy but is an OG Smut Muffin and Shameless Book Con veteran. You can usually find Marlena upside down on a yoga mat or a beach somewhere, making everyone drool. She’s a kickass Californian who is joining us on the east coast to run our charity raffle. Marlena is the one you need to kiss up to if you want to win a few giveaways at #Shameless18.

See you in October!

Hi. My name is Angie, and I’m a social-media-and-smut-book-reading addict. Hi…Angie… I’ve been working hard on the magical internet since 2006 when I retired from teaching elementary school to stay at home with my two baby girls. Now, I am a smut peddler. You can follow my nonsense on Twitter and Facebook. Simply, I’m just a girl, looking at the book world, asking it to love her.
