    Seeking Sponsors for October 2019 Book Conference in Orlando

    We want you!

    Shameless Book Con is founded and owned by longtime Orlando resident and two-time UCF graduate, Angie Lynch. The event brings in more than 1,000 romance readers from around the world to meet over 130 romance authors at the annual get-together where there is no shame! No shame for reading romance, no shame for me-time, and no shame for having fun while bonding with other readers and meeting their favorite authors.

    Angie and her dedicated volunteer team of women are committed to keeping the annual event in the Orlando area as the largest author signing of its kind on the East coast. Entering its fourth consecutive year, Shameless Book Con 2019 will be held at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs™ Area on October 18-19, 2019. Romance readers of all tastes are welcome to attend the event and its popular after-party, The Smut Gala.

    If your brand wants to connect with over a thousand decision makers–college educated women aged 25-54–Shameless Book Con is seeking partnerships of all levels, including overall title sponsors, event headliners, and swag sponsors.

    THE SMUT GALA

    Be at the forefront of all the authors’ and attendees’ minds when they remember the awesomely shameless time they had at the after party!

    I mean, have you SEEN our parties?

    Shameless Book Con is so much more than an author signing. The events they coordinate, from the cocktail party to the off-the-charts creative Smut Gala, are just as fun for authors as the readers. I have been nothing short of blown away by the ingenious use of my sponsorship dollars to create events that attendees will remember for years to come.

    Please contact Angie with any questions. We can't wait to work with you to make #Shameless19 our best event yet!

    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.
