I shall be at FantasyCon again this year and on some programming:
On Friday I shall be doing a reading at 8pm alongside Jan Edwards and Chris Donaldson
On Saturday I’ll be on wo panels (there’s a possibility I’ll be on a panel on Sunday too – the list isn’t quite finalised)
Saturday 4pm Panel room 1 – Being BFA Nominees
An award nomination can be a great confidence booster for a writer. It can also lead to all sorts of new opportunities. Our panel of BFA nominees will discuss what got them to this stage and what they hope their nominations will bring in the future.
Erica Satifka, Pete Sutton, Neil Williamson, Phil Sloman
Saturday 5:30 Panel room 3 -Writing Short Fiction
Short stories are the life blood of Fantasy, Horror and Science Fiction. With Drabbles, Flash Fiction, Ultra Shorts, Poetry and the more traditional 2500-5000 word pieces all having their place, our panelists talk about what works form them in writing the short.
Pete Sutton, Dean M. Drinkel, Phil Sloman, Justin Newland
And on Sunday evening is the British Fantasy Award for which my book A Tiding of Magpies has been nominated in the best collection category – so I’ll be therenervously awaiting the verdict!
