You’re officially invited to appear at the first ever Authors On-The-Rise Showcase at #Shameless17! We want YOU at Shameless Book Con 2017 to meet your readers and get exposure for your books! Last year at Shameless Book Con 2016, we hosted over 1,000 attendees and authors. We’d love for you to be able to take advantage of the opportunity to be a part of this year’s event.


An exclusive group of ~20 invited authors on-the-rise (YOU!) will have exhibition/signing tables during the VIP Reception (5:30pm-7:00pm). At the end of the VIP Reception, the venue will be open to all #Shameless17 attendees (7:00pm-8:30pm).


#Shameless17 VIP Cocktail Reception – Lake/Osceola Ballroom


Friday, October 20th – 5:30pm-8:30pm during and immediately after the VIP Reception


We consider authors on-the-rise to be those who have written 1 book – or maybe a few – and want to increase readership.


If you’re reading this information, you’re one of the awesome authors on-the-rise we think would be a perfect fit to be showcased at #Shameless17!
