Indie Unmasked: The Indy Author Event

Event Title: Indie Unmasked: The Indy Author Event

Event Description: INDIANAPOLIS_ On September 10th over forty authors, including five New York Times bestsellers and fifteen USA Today bestsellers, will be attending Indie Unmasked: The Indy Author Event, held at The Wellington banquet center in Fishers. 
Mass author signings have been a popular trend over the last few years, especially among the community of romance writers. Local authors, Britni Hill and Kate Roth are hosting Indie Unmasked for a second time. In November 2014, the signing brought in nearly 350 attendees. 
Indie Unmasked is a book signing during the day (12:30-4:00 pm) where authors will meet and greet readers as well as sell and sign copies of their books. Authors typically also have free items for readers to take or have signed such as bookmarks, pens, buttons and other creative book-related promotional materials. Once the signing is over, the room will be transformed for the evening reception; a masquerade ball (8:00- 11:45 pm) where authors and readers alike can dance the night away. This year’s theme is Vintage Glam. Imagine Jay Gatsby throwing a party for F. Scott Fitzgerald and his literary colleagues! 
Tickets are $7 per one hour and forty five minute session. To keep the setting intimate and ensure lines never get too long, the day is broken up into two sessions. However, readers are welcome to purchase tickets for both session to spend all day meeting and greeting their favorite authors. For just $35, readers can attend the masquerade ball where appetizers, desserts, and drinks will be served while a DJ plays music for dancing and mingling. 
Among the bestsellers that will be in attendance are Indiana’s own New York Times Bestselling authors, Aleatha Romig, Lexi Ryan, Kelsie Leverich, Ohio native Michelle Valentine, and Illinois resident Victoria Ashley. There are twenty-four current or former Hoosiers in the bunch and a large majority of the other signing authors hail from the Midwest.
It seems as though readers of romance, especially from independently published authors (who tend to release more books per year on average than traditionally published authors and have lower costing e-books), are voracious! Roth and Hill hope for a great turn out of local and Midwestern readers at Indie Unmasked due to not only the extensive list of top-selling, talented authors, but also the reputation of the first running of Indie Unmasked.
Tickets and a full list of the signing authors as well as other important information can be found on the event website www.indieunmasked.weebly.com. Tickets to the masquerade ball will only be on sale through August 21st.
