Earlier on in the year I attended Follycon in Harrogate, and enjoyed it so much I booked to attend Fantasycon in Chester this coming weekend.
In the intervening period I decided that I wanted to step out of my comfort zone a bit and put myself forward for a couple of panels.
If you’re attending I’ll be on the Micro Fiction/Flash Fiction at 12:30 in Panel Room 3.
“In a changing world where consumption of texts is constant and attention spans appear to be shrinking, is the flash or micro fiction story the way forward for writers looking to attract a new young readership? Our panel discusses the craft of writing the ultra short.”
On Sunday I’ll be in Panel Room 3 on the Dead Bodies panel at 12:30.
“Many good stories involve a mystery. Whether the case at hand has remained unsolved for hundreds of years, or happened in the first chapter of the book, a good puzzle provides the writer with an opportunity to engage the reader’s brain iin finding the answer. Our panelists discuss unsolved conundrums, consider the role of accurate research, and look at a range of tools that are at the writer’s disposal to create intriigue for the curious reader.”
I’ll have some copies of Ruby Red and Snowflake Cold with me, so if you would like one come and have a chat.
Now we’re not living in the U.K. these events are a great chance to catch up with people, surrounded by books and stories.
See you there!
