If you’re going to honor Southern Gothic, is there any better place to do it than Georgia? Some of you might say New Orleans. Well, Y’all hush. We went there last year 😉 This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Bram Stoker Awards Weekend and the World Horror Convention. The WHC2015 is being held at the beautiful Atlanta Marriott Marquis. If you’re attending the conference this year, don’t forget to check out the Programming page. It lists the seven themes of the conference to help you plan your schedule. There are so many good panels and readings this year, it’s going to be difficult to choose.
Speaking of panels, I’ll be participating in the “Writing Horror in an eBook Age.” I’ll be sharing my experiences as an Indie Author and a reader who travels for work. Business travelers are (and will continue to be) a huge eBook consumer group. The team of Project Managers I work with travel all over the country. All of them love to read. All of them read on either their iPad or their smart phone. Carry on space on airplanes continues to shrink in availability and grow in expense. It simply isn’t practical to take two or three paperbacks with you on trips anymore. eBooks are a godsend to folks like me.
I foresee some interesting conversations this week. I better be ready!
- Box of books shipped and on its way to Atlanta
