From November 11th – 13th, I will be in Portsmouth, New Hampshire as a guest of AnthoCon, which takes place at the Best Western Wynwood Hotel. For those attending, here’s my schedule:
Saturday, Nov. 12, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. – Keynote Speech: I’ll be focusing on some of the themes I’ve been discussing in my Seminal Screams column for Shroud Magazine, as well as some of the nonsense that’s taken place in our genre over the last few years. Regardless of whether you’re a reader or a writer, I think you’ll enjoy it. There may be cursing. And whiskey. At nine o’clock in the morning.
Saturday, Nov. 12, from 5:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. – Panel: “Iʼve made it this far, now what?” The AnthoCon Special Guest Panel discusses their respective paths to literary success and answer questions from the audience. This is a rare opportunity to see many of our special guests in one room and experience a candid discussion about their lives, careers, and future plans and projects.
