GenreCon this weekend, Nov 2 – 4

November 1, 2012

I wasn’t originally going to be able to attend GenreCon this weekend, but now I can, so firstly I want to thank the Australian Horror Writers’ Association for making that happen. I’ll be there as an official representative of the AHWA for the Sunday afternoon shenanigans. I won’t be able to make the Friday night part of the con, but I’ll be there all day Saturday and Sunday. What is GenreCon? Here, from the website:

GenreCon is a three-day convention for Australian fans and professionals working within the fields of romance, mystery, science fiction, crime, fantasy, horror, thrillers, and more. One part party, one part celebration, one part professional development: GenreCon is the place to be if you’re an aspiring or established writer with a penchant for the types of fiction that get relegated to their own corner of the bookstore.

Sounds pretty sweet, huh? There’s all kinds of stuff going on, which you can find from the Program page on the website. My official duties will be on Sunday from 3 – 4 pm when the AHWA will host afternoon tea and, as part of the festivities, we’ll be launching Martin Livings’ new collection, Living With The Dead. So don’t miss out!

Come and find me and say hello. I’m looking forward to catching up with old friends and making new friends this weekend. All the details here.
