In the past few weeks I’ve been immersed in an interesting new phenomenon: FantasyCon. A group called Flavor of Fantasy along with a bunch of authors, publishers, bloggers and artists has put together a gigantic online fantasy and sci fi event from Nov. 1 to Nov. 8 for everyone who loves these genres.
It’s a virtual convention staged on Facebook but just like at a real convention, you’ll find booths. At these dedicated Facebook pages you can meet authors and artists and ask questions by posting comments. Enter scores of contests for chances at a TON of prizes of Amazon gift certificates, books and ebooks. There’s also chats with all kinds of different authors and some videos of panel discussions on a bunch of really intriguing topics, like the one I’m on, “The Hero’s Journey.”
Did you stop by my booth yesterday, Epic Wednesday? Were you stumped by the pop quizzes? Do you need to catch up with “The Bewildering Adventures of King Bewilliam”? OK, here’s some help. You can get up to speed with a free digital copy of Book One, “The Lost King.” Select the format you need for your e-reading device and enter the code UL46U at checkout—but don’t delay. The coupon expires at the close of FantasyCon, Sunday, Nov. 8, 2015.
And thanks to everyone who did stop by my booth. I met some fascinating people and made lots of new Friends. I had the most fun with “Name This Dragon.” So many wonderful names were proposed that I wish I had more dragons. Tiffany Taylor, Dorrie Ross, Ben R. Marsten, and John Howell, don’t be surprised if the names you suggested show up in a future King Bewilliam book. I decided to choose Hilary Anderson’s “Ink”—”black as night and more powerful than a sword.” What else would a writer’s dragon be called?
FantasyCon continues and my “booth” is still live, so if you want to take a stab at one of the quizzes or join one of the discussion we have going on, I’ll love to see you: https://www.facebook.com/events/893446364072813/permalink/911235298960586
