Come See Me at Multiverse Con

Ready for a weekend filled with scifi, fantasy, and horror? I sure am!

This weekend I’ll be at Multiverse Con as both a vendor and a panelist. Although this is only the third year for this con, the authors who are going to be present are amazing! I got to attend last year as a virtual guest and had such a great time on the Discord server that I jumped at the chance to be a part of it again this year.

I’ll have my author booth setup beside my sister, Kelley with Morbid Smile Art. She’s got a really cool booth upgrade this time so I’m looking forward to seeing it out on the vendor hall! I’ll be sharing a booth with my friend Aryn with GaeFaeFashion on Etsy. They are going to be helping me manage the booth while I’m away on panels. Needless to say, it’s going to be a fun but busy convention!

In addition to panels, I’ll have a one-hour mentoring block set aside on Sunday at 1PM. I’ll have four 12-minute time slots available for folks to sign up. Book a slot if you want to get some advice on your story direction, your writing path, or even if you just want to chat about small press & indie publishing. I’ve had experience in both! Thursday is the LAST DAY to sign up for a mentoring slot. The form closes at 9PM Eastern Time. So make sure you don’t delay!

Finally here are the panels I’ll be on this weekend! Panel descriptions are from the website.

  • Friday
    • Writing Believable YA Horror @ 5:30 PM
      • [Family Friendly] How do you avoid tropes in YA horror or do you lean in enthusiastically? How do you make a story resonate with a readership demographic that you may no longer be part of? These questions and more will be addressed in this timely panel discussion.
    • Xtopia: How does it shape us? @ 8:30 PM
      • Panelists will discuss the value of fictional dystopias or fictional utopias. Do they inspire or scare us? Is the likely truth somewhere in the middle? Does society and readers as a whole perceive the lessons contained in both?
  • Saturday
    • Characterization: The Oft-Neglected Support Character @ 4:00 PM
      • We spend a lot of time in the writing world talking about hero/ines and villains, but they are not the only characters who inhabit your world. Support characters are important within stories, but they inhabit a place between being overwhelming and being extraneous. In this panel, we’ll talk about how to find that space for your support characters, when you might have too many, how to handle paring down or bulking up your support character numbers, what sort of information needs to be on the page about them and what doesn’t.
  • Sunday
    • Mentoring Session at 1:00 PM

And if you can’t make it to a panel, I’ll be in the Vendor Hall all weekend. I hope to see some of you all there!
