In response to my not-so-subtle favor request, John has gifted me a blogspot. So I revisited his site for some guest-blogging inspiration, and here’s a few lines into his latest post (a Droll Troll sneak peek):
“He’d been in an animated discussion with the council’s blue-skinned woggim over whether or not fish smelled fishy to other fish.”
An Indie with Pratchett in his veins? Irresistible.
Anyway, I’m not here to fangirl. I’m here to tell you about a Writer Con in Orlando this September.
SF:SE hits Orlando this September: Dropping a wicked footprint on con culture
My organization, Dirty Little Bookers, is hosting the coolest Speculative Fiction party around; a celebrity-centric event focused on the exploration of publishing and networking, and the celebration of entrepreneurial passion.
SF:SE—Speculative Fiction: Southeast—is an event for all lovers and artists of Speculative Fiction, a term encompassing Horror, SciFi, Fantasy, Paranormal and Weird.
At the Sheraton Orlando North in Maitland, Florida on September 25-27, 2015, you’ll witness a marriage of cultures: conference standards such as workshops, panels and editor one-on-ones, together with convention debauchery like werewolf LARPing, masquerade balls and a tattoo gallery. All events will be shared with authorial greats like Orson Scott Card, Jacqueline Carey, Peter V. Brett and Kelley Armstrong, and a slew of industry icons.
Keep checking back for programming and guest updates, or sign up to participate yourself! We have exhibitor tables available–a good opportunity to showcase your work to a room full of specfic readers. Or join the team and become a panel moderator, workshopper or performance artist! There are a ton of ways to get involved. If you just want to come and get weird for the weekend, our tickets are cheap and the hotel room is cheaper. We know that author events can sometimes be stuffy and inaccessible, so we’re sticking with genre con pricepoints. Be warned, though–we will sell out.
Any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you in September!
