Bristolcon!

- 2 comments - Events

I’m going to Bristolcon tomorrow (Saturday 29th October, 2016). This is the first convention I’ve been to for quite a few years (Rare Appearance of Reclusive Author!), due to having little kids, but our wonderful niece, Freya, is coming down from Manchester to babysit for the day, so we actually get to go to a con for once!

Here’s my schedule (I’m doing a panel and a reading):

Panel: Under the Covers

4pm – 4.45pm

We all know how important covers are to books. Whether or not you judge a book by its cover, marketers assume you will, and cover art is a key part of how a book is marketed and received. Our panel reveals the process by which cover art is commissioned, from writers and publishers selecting artists to the challenges of rendering the writer’s vision artistically, with reference to examples of the good, the bad and the ugly of cover art.

With Terry Jackman (Mod), Jaine Fenn, Fangorn (Chris Baker), Kate Turner (KS Turner), Patrick Samphire

Programme room 2

Reading: Secrets of the Dragon Tomb

4.50pm – 4.55pm

Programme room 2

The rest of the time I’ll be either in the bar, the dealers’ room, or watching one of the other panels or readings. Say ‘hi’ if you see me!
