It’s Imaginarium time!

Published October 4, 2016 by admin

I know I’ve been away a while, but I wanted to make sure to let people know that I am alive, and I’ll be in Louisville this weekend. It’s the annual get together of writer-type people, otherwise known as Imaginarium!

Seriously, if you haven’t been there and can get there, do it. There are so many panels and workshops available on not just how to get started writing, but the business of writing, marketing, plus a lot of genre subjects, as well. There’s a film festival, gaming, parties, and all the stuff that makes cons fun, but what really makes this one special is that it’s a one stop shop for learning about craft and networking with other like minds. This year’s GOH is Briane Keene. Elizabeth Bevarly, Jim C. Hines, and Jason Sizemore will be there, as well as loads of other talented people.

Plus, me. I’ll be there, talking about stuff, selling books and other fun things, and doing my annual duty as costume contest monarch. Or something.

Imaginarium is from October 7-9 at the Crowne Plaza in Louisville, KY. More information can be found at http://www.entertheimaginarium.com

Why Imaginarium?

So I want to tell you about a really cool event happening next week. It’s called Imaginarium and it’s a writing convention unlike any other.

So why should you go?

If you’re a writer, you’re going to get information you won’t get anywhere else:

We have full panel tracks that deal with the writing process, marketing, business, getting published, genre discussions, writing for comic books, and writing for film. We also have workshops you can take to really learn the topic you’re interested in. In total, we have over 140 panels and workshops dedicated to the art and business of writing.

There will be a good number of publishers there.

There are a lot of authors at different levels to talk to.

If you’re a reader, you are going to be around a lot of amazing authors with books that you will love. All genres, all types. 

If you’re just looking to hang out, there will be a film festival and a masquerade.

And you can go all weekend for a $55 pass. $25 dollars will get you in the door for a day.

Registration information can be found here

Guest-wise we have Rose Pressey, author of more paranormal-themed books than I can list in a blog post. We have Maurice Broaddus, who’s been published with Weird Tales, Cemetery Dance,  Issac Asimov’s Science Fiction, Apex Books, and Angry Robot. We have Jeffery Reddick, creator of the Final Destination film series. And Dan Jolley will be there – if you’re into comics and gaming, or interested in writing for either, you’ll want to talk to him. 

Plus, there will be many, many other author guests with input about writing and fantastic titles to check out.

So why should you go to Imaginarium?

Why shouldn’t you?

You can access the main site here

Info on panels and workshops can be found either using the tabs off the main site or here

Imaginarium will be at the Crowne Plaza (Louisville Airport) Sept 19-21.

See you there!
