Shameless22 Sponsorship Opportunities Featured-1 700

You've heard the news: Shameless Book Con 2022 will be our last annual event.

And we're going out BIG!

#Shameless22 will be our biggest and our best author signing event ever! And you know we're known for putting on the best event and the best after-party in the industry:
The Smut Gala.

Our overall event and after-party theme is Venetian Masquerade Ball.

With all that intrigue and sexiness mixed into our top-notch organization, Shameless Book Con 2022 will absolutely blow away every other author signing event – even our own previous Shameless events and parties!

Because this will be our final annual author signing event, we're planning for more attendees, more authors, and MORE OF EVERYTHING! This will be THE romance author signing event all readers will want to attend. Our belief in going over-the-top and above-and-beyond for our authors and attendees will shine through — we guarantee it!

To give you an idea of how enthusiastic authors are to be a part of the event this year, we secured 75 signing author spots in just one week after opening registration. And just days after our #Shameless21 event, we had over 110 authors signed up for a table.
