I’m super excited to tell you about the awesome convention I’ll be hanging out at this weekend! If you’re around Troy, Michigan, make sure to stop by the Troy Marriott to check out panels for writers and readers, meet and greets, and the charity book signing! (Full schedule here.)
But where can you find me?
9:30 am – 10:30 am
A DIVERSE WORLD (D2)
Jon David, Elizabeth Harmon, Jordin Mack, Heather Novak
Steampunk is often set in Victorian London; Urban Fantasy is often set in the middle of a large city; Romance is often set in a picturesque town. What is it about these locales that have made them so common? Why haven’t we seen seen settings in different cultures or areas? Where would we love to see a story take place? Where should genre fiction explore next?
10:45 am – 11:45 am
IMPROV FLASH FICTION (D2)
Nancy Holzner, Lita Lawson, Heather Novak, Marianne Wieland, Duane Wurst
Fast paced and quick witted, authors create stories in real time, “round robin” style, using prompts from the audience.
2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Charity Book Signing – Open to the Public (Grand Ballroom)
8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
YOUNG ADULT / NEW ADULT MEET & GREET (D4)
J. Leigh Bailey, Vanessa M. Knight, Jordin Mack, Heather Novak, MK Schiller, Alexandria Sure, and Duane Wurst
(You should all come to the meet and greet. I gave up VIP Josh Groban/Foy Vance tickets to be awesome with you instead!)
10:45 am – 11:45 am
ROMANTIC ENTANGLEMENTS (D4)
Linda Bradley, Elizabeth Heiter, Kristina Knight, Heather Novak, Gina Sterling
How important is the romance to a story? Balancing the chemistry with the plot – slow burn vs explosion.
So, Heather. What is this charity book signing you speak of?
From 2:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturday, August 13, you can come visit a slew of authors who are signing autographs, giving away swag, and generally making mischief for the cost of a used book. That’s right! Here’s how to get in:
The signing is a FREE activity, open to the public, however we are asking everyone to bring a gently used book (childrens through adult) to help fill a new #FreeLittleLibrary to be installed within the community after the event. The location of the library, as well as the library itself, will be revealed/displayed during the book signing.
I will be there with copies of Hunting Witch Hazel, as well as cover reveals for Threat of Raine and Rosemary for Remembrance. To check out the AMAZING list of authors, click here.
Then, go have dinner at any of Troy’s amazing restaurants, including P.F. Chang’s, and come visit us for the Meet & Greet after the signing!
BONUS: If you come to see me and mention this blog post and promise to leave a review, I will give you a free copy of Hunting Witch Hazel.
Hope to see you there!!
