Happy Tuesday, everyone! Well, you all know I'll be at UtopYA Con this coming weekend. What you may not know is some of the facts about that event. I'm gonna share those now, as well as give you information on where you can find me and my awesome table mate, Tia Silverthorne Bach.
First up, the super awesome Fan Invasion event!
This event is completely separate from UtopYA Con. Even if you don't have tickets to the con, you can still attend the Fan Invasion on Friday, June 20, 2014, from 6-9pm. Attendance is free IF you bring a new or gently used children's book. Otherwise, you can get in for just five bucks. More about the sponsor here in a moment.
First, here's a little video I made to promote it:
It includes information on all the authors I did interviews with here on the blog. Here's a list of authors that'll be at the signing:
Stacey Marie Brown
Chelsea M. Cameron
G. P. Ching
Michelle N. Files
P. K. Hrezo
S. A. Huchton
Sarah Ashley Jones
Heather Love King
C. A. Kunz
Michele G. Miller
K. C. Neal
C. J. Redwine
B. J. Sheldon
We're listed (and will be seated) alphabetically.
This event is sponsored by Book 'Em. Here's a little info about them:
Book’em, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2014, is a nonprofit 501c3 organization focusing on two core areas: the collection and distribution of books to children and teens in lower-income families who might not otherwise have books of their own; and providing volunteer readers to local preschools and elementary schools.
Now, the con kicks into full swing that morning, so be sure you get there early if you have tickets.
Here's the information about where you can find Tia and me Friday and Saturday:
We'll be in Area 51 at table number 27. If you get lost, look for the big banner on the front of our table with the INDIE Books Gone Wild logo front and center, and our logos on either side with our book covers.
Here's a picture of those logos:
We'll have a huge prize pack of books for a giveaway at the con. Titles include:
Keepers of Arden - The Brothers, Volume One by L. K. Evans
Tbinkerknese 101 - Poetic Enrichment for Teens - Book One by E. L. Thomas
First Visions - Second Sight, Book One by Heather Topham Wood
A Pair of Docks - The Derivatives of Displacement, Book One by Jennifer Ellis
Borrowed Things by Doris Schneider
I, Zombie by Jo Michaels
Chasing Shadows by Tia Silverthorne Bach
Sixty Days of Grace by Dorothy Ruppert
As you can see, it's a great bundle of books. We've worked on all of them in some way (may have been a small way, but we did something for each one). You can enter by stopping by our table and filling out a quick entry slip with your name. We'll draw the winners on Sunday morning.
We're so excited to meet everyone! Come on by and say hello because we aren't the shy type!
Come back tomorrow for a wonderful guest post by Tia, and find out who won my super secret sharing prize!
Are you going to UtopYA Con this year? Are you excited about next year? Planning to join us then?
Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!
