That’s right kids, it’s almost time for LibertyCon again — this year in a new venue, the Chattanooga Downtown Marriot adjacent to the Chattanooga Convention Center. The current owners of the Chattanooga Choo Choo have made it fairly obvious they aren’t interested in continuing business with any of the three sci/fi and fandom conventions which have called it home for the past decade or so. The Marriot is a temporary home for Libertycon, as it is my understanding the convention will be contracting with the historic Read House Hotel next year.
I will once again be pushing my books in Authors’ Alley as well as sitting on a panel or two. It also seems I’ve been cemented in as part of the crew for the children’s masquerade again. If you attend LibertyCon often enough, you WILL be put to work. Just ask Brandy.
Here’s my updated bio and schedule for this year. I would say drop by if you’re in town that weekend, but the con has been sold out for a few months now. Still, if you think you’ll be in the Chattanooga area around the last weekend of June (when they usually hold it if it doesn’t conflict with other events at the same venue) next year, be sure to log on to libertycon.org and get your tickets starting as early as July this year. They sell out fast.
In other news, I have finished going over the edits for episode 2 of The Adventures of Pigg & Woolfe — The Truce. As soon as I get a satisfactory cover put together for it, I will upload it to KDP.
I have already received my first rejection letter in my current agent hunt. Truth be told, that’s all I would expect to get this early in the game. Most of the agency websites I’ve looked at tell potential clients to expect to wait 8 weeks or more for a reply. I plan to send out another wave of queries over this holiday weekend.
Happy Memorial Day to all my U.S. readers and followers.
