Welcome to the Author and Reader Conventions Blog!

A little about who I am:
I own Innovative Online Book Tours. I have a degree in marketing and several years of experience. If you would like references please feel free to contact me.

I have designed the con to emulate what I experience as the best parts of conventions I have attended, from both the authors and readers points of view. I am open to all suggestions and willing to make adjustments as we go so that we have the best convention possible.

I would like to offer both writing panels for authors (please volunteer to lead a panel) and genre panels for readers as well as socials and evening events. Of course much of this evolves as the convention is built and authors and publisher join in and request events that they would like to be involved in. I have the Hotel secured in Phoenix with 2 room suites and plenty of event space. There will be a book signing on Saturday and I am trying to schedule a public signing at the local Barnes and Noble the afternoon or evening before the con begins.

Publishers: If you are interested in talking with authors and taking pitches, I offer a boardroom style setting for sponsors to use and schedule as they see fit for an entire day.

Join us for a convention experience you will not soon forget!

Authors & Reader Cons are for authors and readers to meet one another during a fun and carefree weekend.

The focus is  on the reader author relationship. I want you to have the chance to meet your favorite authors in person and to be introduced to new authors that you will now want to add to your TBR pile ( I know you have one ;)   Readers and authors alike are encouraged to let their hair down and get to know each other and talk about the one thing that really brings us all together: BOOKS!

There are many convention options available to you the authors and readers to take advantage of, so with this in mind I have made every effort to provide a quality event with many bonus features at an affordable price.  In these hard economic times, you don’t have to break the bank to attend an amazing event!

Join us for 2014 where the books are hot, Cover models are swoon worthy, and the desert is amazing!
