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
So as proof I’m alive, I’ll be taking part in the annual book fair at That Book Place in Madison, Indiana, on April 4! That would be this Saturday, so if you’re in the area, stop by and say hi, meet some fabulous authors, pick up some great books, and come check out an overall really fun event! I’ll be taking part in the crossing genres panel at 8pm on Friday at That Book Place, and then Saturday at the fair proper at the National Armory I’ll be sitting in on the Paranormal and Horror Panels and doing a reading at 5pm. I’m still deciding what pieces of my work I’ll subject innocent people to, but suffice it to say it’s almost guaranteed that a certain short story about an unconventional princess that usually gets a great response will be in the lineup. I actually had a friend and longtime reader ask about that one, so I suppose it’s time to pull up that document and get reacquainted.
Anywho, if you want to hang out with us writerly types and pick up some cool books to get you through the spring and summer, if you want to sit in on some great panels about genre and writing, or even if you just wanna get out and about for a Saturday, well, now you have something to do!
All details about the event can be found at the That Book Place website or on the Facebook event page!
