Oh nelly, October was a whirlwind of a month. I had a few very exciting things happen that I can’t wait to share with you all! In this month’s newsletter, check out:
- The Queens take on France (and I turned 30, flirty and thriving)
- The Genre LA Creative Writing Conference
- September/October’s hype train draw
The Queens take on France (and I turned 30!)
In two weeks, Katie and I went coast to coast and everywhere in between in France. I could fill books (and I did) about our adventures, but that is for another time. So instead, enjoy the pre-published French book tour we took with Contest of Queens!
The Genre LA Creative Writing Conference
Let me tell you, it is a surreal feeling to see your name and photo next to all of these incredibly talented writers/authors/publishers!
I was lucky enough to speak on three different panels across the week, I’ve included their summaries below.
On the Speculative Fiction Panel (description below), I joined my fellow CamCat authors to talk about the “What If” factor as well as debate the value of escapism and story outlines, with Dungeons and Dragons popping up for an honorable mention. I was armed with a cup of tea, and if it weren’t for the screen, could have mistaken the panel for a chat with old friends.
Thanks to Josh Chamberlain for moderating, and to my fellow panelists:
Elijah Menchaca- They Met in a Tavern
Bryan Prosek- The Brighter the Stars, Measure of Serenity
Christian Klaver- Shadows over London series
Jason Offutt- The Girl in the Corn
