Panels, Winners and more pictures at Rock and Shock

The most successful NEHW panel was the Women in Horror panel. It was moderated by Trisha Wooldridge and the panelists were Tracy Carbone, Stacey Longo, Kristi Petersen Schoonover, and Kelli Jones. When I talk about success, I am talking about the attendance level. This panel had the most people in attendance and it was at the perfect time slot of 1 p.m. on Saturday.

The other three panels were Small Press and Magazines on Friday at 6 p.m., The Writers Studio on Saturday at 12 p.m., and E-Publishing Workshop on Sunday at 1 p.m. All the panels were informative and successful. An unsuccessful panel would have been a panel with no audience. Since this was the first year for the NEHW panels, it will just grow as the convention grows and continue to get better and better year after year.

The NEHW booth had a raffle and the prize was a coffin full of books. A coffin looking box, not an actual coffin. The winner was Kelly Williams, of Enfield, Connecticut. Her name was drawn out of the raffle container Sunday afternoon.
