Every year, prior to Gen Con, the ENnies auctions off Dream Dates with publishers. This entails a fan bidding to have the honor of hobnobbing with publishers before the ceremony (Friday evening, August 16) and sitting with them during. Publishers also offer prizes such as signed goods, books, etc to sweeten the pot. All of the proceeds, of course, go to help the ENnies. I hope to start the auctions around the end of June/beginning of July time frame.
I have already e-mailed a few publishers but if you’re a publisher and have not received an e-mail from me and are interested in participating, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
