It’s Vegas, Baby! It’s KillerCon!
I can’t tell you how excited I am to go. It’s going to be the first of hopefully many more to come: KillerCon.
“Horror, thriller, and paranormal romance collides in this inaugural multi-genre writer’s convention. The First Annual Las Vegas KillerCon will take place September 17 through 20, 2009 at the Palace Station Hotel/Casino in Sin City. KillerCon will feature panel discussions, readings, writing contests, parties, book signings, and author Q&As with Guests of Honor Joe R. Lansdale, Brian Keene, L.A. Banks, Heather Graham, Edward Lee, and Allen K., as well as many other top writing and artistic talents.”
My first conference, and on my turf! It’s ran by Wrath James White and Monica J. O’Rourke, who I’m hoping to meet there. Shock Totem and Sideshow Press will be sharing a vendor’s table, and it will be manned by Kurt Newton and yours truly. You can pick up a copy of Shock Totem’s debut issue, signed by Kurt and I, for a special KillerCon discounted price of five bucks. Woo! Or slip me an extra dollar under the table and I won’t sign it for you. 😛 And here’s an awesome piece of Trivia. The conference is being held at the Palace Station. Google “Palace Station OJ Simpson”. Oh yeah. Love it. 🙂
Anyway, I’m all kinds of excited, and quite a few of my Internet associates should be there. I’m also all kinds of nervous because I have no idea what to expect. But the table will be my anchor, and I’ll run screaming for it when I’m drowning in a sea of talent.
But seriously, this would be a fabulous time to throw out words of advice. What was your first conference like? Is there anything that you think I should know? Or shall I just toss my hair back and meet all of these awesome writers? So cool!
