Nine Worlds 2015 & Fantasy in the Court: Where I'll be

Nine Wolrds 2105

I’m attending Nine Worlds again this year and I’ll also be at Fantasy in the Court, read on for details for what I’m doing and a chance to win a signed hardback of The Vagrant.

 

 

Fantasy in the Court – Thursday 6th August (6pm-9pm)

Hosted by Goldsboro books and Hodderscape, it’s packed to the gills with fabulous and mostly friendly fantasy and science fiction authors. It’s also our tenth wedding anniversary so Emma and I will be planning to make merry!

Further details are on the Goldsboro website.

 

Nine Worlds Geekfest

For those who don’t know, it’s a super inclusive celebration of all things geeky and I thoroughly enjoyed the last two times I went. It's well worth a look at their website for further details. Here’s where to find me:

You’re in our world now – The invention of myths for a modern audience.* Country C&D, 11.45am – 1.00pm

Newbie Meetup. Country A, 1.30pm – 2.45pm

If you’re new to Nine Worlds, come along and have a cup of tea with me and Em. Chat, ask all your questions, meet other people who have no idea what’s going on! I guarantee by the time you’ve finished, you’ll feel right as rain.

Saturday 8th August

Newbie Meetup. Commonwealth East, 1.30pm – 2.45pm

New Voices. Royal C&D, 10.15pm – 11.30pm

Competition time!

If you’re going to Nine Worlds and want to win a signed hardback of The Vagrant all you have to do is go attend any of the programme items above and ask me the question: “Am I the First?” If you’re the first person to ask me that, you win. Simple!***
