It is that time of the year again folks.
Oz Comic Con time!
I love convention time. I feel so at home amongst the hustle and bustle of people dressed in cosplay, the excitement that fills the air when the celebrities are at the autograph booths. I feel so happy seeing the smiling faces of those wandering the convention hall. It brings me such a great sense of joy.
I haven’t managed to branch out to the other cities of Australia yet, but someday, I hope I will – for now – my home city is truly wonderful (although, not when our power goes out.)
So this year a new layer of exciting awesomeness has been added to the fun of Oz Comic Con. I’ll be on a panel of other independent authors, on Sunday the 2nd of April at 3pm.
Adelaide Indie Authors – Open Book to Publication
A group of five local authors will be presenting a panel on getting your story from an idea in your head to a book in your hand.
As a group we’ve all had some really fascinating experiences in editing, designing a books interior, the work that goes into cover art, and the marketing stages, as well as many other, interesting faucets that come along with the independent publishing adventure.
I would like to introduce you all to my fellow Adelaide Indie Authors.
You’ll find us all at Oz Comic Con, so feel free to drop by our booths to have a chat (and if you have a photo/or signature with Brent Spiner come and show me! Please! I don’t think I’ll get away from my table…and I just…I really, really want to meet him, so I’ll have to live through all of you.)
K E Fraser
K E Fraser is the author of Through the Fig Tree (The Realm of the Lilies Book 1) and Water off A Dragon’s Back (The Realm of the Lilies Book 2).
Where you can find Fraser:
You’ll be able to pick up Water Off A Dragon’s Back at Oz Comic Con, which is very exciting. Yay!
Matt J Pike
Matt is the author of many fabulous books (my personal favourite being Apocalypse: Diary of a Survivor that I highly recommend as a apocalypse genre lover).
Please do check out Matt’s website:
Karen J Carlisle
Karen dabbles in speculative fiction, concentrating on fantasy or steampunk – often with a touch of gaslamp or Victorian mystery. She is often found plotting fantastical, piratical or airship adventures.
To find out more about Karen’s books and all she is currently working on, do visit her website!
Alex runs Galexy Tales, and has published a number of books of different genres.
To learn more about Galexy Tales, and Alex, visit his website and social media.
It is going to be a really great weekend. I can already feel it.
So if you’re coming along, do drop by and say hello. I’d love to meet you, take a photo, chat about how much you’re enjoying the convention (have you meet Brent Spiner).
And if you’re around at 3pm on Sunday, drop by the Community Stage for our panel.
I’ll try very hard to not be my usual shy self.
