The Ozark Book Con is this Saturday, November 9th, all day at the Holiday Inn on 1500 S. 48th Street in Springdale, AR. It’s a one-day-only event, but it is jampacked with gaming, a dealers room, and panels on all kinds of writing-related topics. Below is my schedule.
Admission is $20, but children 12 and under get in free, so bring the whole family! If you’d like to grab a ticket early, you can register here.
Where to find me at the event:
10:00am, Join me in the Reading Room. Book giveaway to follow!
11:00am, Writing a Series, Panel Room 2
“Writing one book is hard enough. Writing three or four or more? Even harder. Learn from published authors the difficulties and triumphs in writing an overarching story that spans multiple books.”
12:00pm, Story Planning, Panel Room 2
“Whether you write by the seat of your pants, are a meticulous outliner, or something in between, come listen to our authors discuss story planning methods, tips and tricks, and more!”
2:00pm, Creating New Worlds, Panel Room 2
“From secret schools to star systems, fiction explores countless landscapes, cultures, worlds, and beliefs. Listen to published authors discuss how they create fictional (or not so fictional) worlds and how you might create yours.”
4:00pm, Perfecting Your Pitch, Panel Room 2
“How do you summarize a 100,000 word book into one sentence? Having a killer pitch can put you ahead of the game. Listen to our panel of authors discuss what works, what doesn’t, and how to make your pitch better than ever.”
5:00pm, Writing Short Fiction, Panel Room 2
