If you're following me on social media, you've probably heard me talk... a lot about Virtual FantasyCon. It's 10/9-16!
For an introvert like me, this Con is like hot chocolate and a good book on a stormy day. It's an online event. I interact with people through the comment section of a Facebook post. Though I do enjoy sitting at a booth, talking to people about my books, I'm way more comfortable writing all my interactions. I'd rather text and email someone than call them.
Virtual FantasyCon is like heaven. I attended last year.
"Virtual FantasyCon is an online event showcasing those who are part of the Fantasy community. It is exactly like a regular convention, except it is free, you don't have to travel, and you can participate from the comfort of your own home, or anywhere you have a wi-fi connection.
It takes place over a span of eight days in Facebook events, allowing members of the Fantasy community to connect with Fantasy fans from around the world."I believe about 400 authors are participating. I can't imagine the amount of work it takes to put this together. Also, this year, the Con will have vendors so you can purchase some cool swag. They'll have discussion panels and other fun things.
I added an event on my Facebook page so you can keep up-to-date with what I'm doing at the Con. Check out the page!
Last year, I exhibited as just an author. This year, I'm an author, artist and blogger. I'll also be participating for 3 days instead of 1 and I'm on two panels. The videos will be posted throughout the Con. I'll share them on my Facebook event page.
Here's the schedule:
Sun, October 9th - Epic/Sword & Sorcery
Mon, October 10th - Sci-Fi/Sci-Fantasy/Time-Travel
Tue, October 11th - Fairytale/Punk
Wed, October 12th - Paranormal/Urban
Thu, October 13th - Series/Short Stories
Fri, October 14th - Dystopian/Apocalyptic
Sat, October 15th - Dark/GrimDark/Horror
Sun, October 16th - Children/YA Fantasy
Stop on by. It'll be fun. You'll meet authors, hang out with fellow fans and maybe win some prizes.
The Con will also have Blog Hop Hunt, which I'm participating in. It's a scavenger hunt. My post will be live 10/10.
"If you love to find new books and the authors who create these wonderful, fantastical worlds, then this is the place to be! We, the Virtual FantasyCon team are pleased to present this exciting feature.

Don't miss out on these awesome events. Show your support. Virtual FantasyCon is amazing for both authors and readers.
On an unrelated note, a horror short story I submitted was accepted by Black Girl Magic Lit Mag!!!! It's always nice, that moment when your work pays off. More info coming soon.
