Authors and Artists is a unique event for all participants, unlike most book expos, authors must apply and be selected for participation. This provides a topical balance and prevents overloading of certian genres. .The event is a "boutique" type of expo that works to feature each individual author, and markets intensely to its target market. (the number of authors will not exceed 25) Prior to the event the audience is familiar with the authors because the've been introduced to them through 220 Communications Newsletter and the event website www.authorsandartistslive.com. This year traditionally published authors will be participating as well as the event has gained a reputation for its devotion to the writers and its professional presentation.
