As well as the usual digital articles about their work, individual members of Hornsea Writers are occasionally asked to give talks on anything from The Writing Life to Developing Characters to Researching & Planning a Novel, but it isn't often that two members are asked to participate on a panel at a convention. In fact, neither have ever attended a convention, so it should prove quite an eye-opener.
On Saturday 16th August Linda Acaster and Stuart Aken will be in Hull at FantastiCon talking about aspects of their Fantasy trilogies - Torc of Moonlight and A Seared Sky. With them on the panel will be JS Collyer whose debut SF novel Zero will be launching on the day.
That's if they can be be found at the appointed time. The place will be awash with gaming, costumes, Dr Who participants, "Elite" series authors Q&A, and everything SF. Personally I think they'll be fighting for a seat on the Star Wars speeder bike in front of the green screen. Who wouldn't want a photograph of that?
Fantasticon is hosted by Fantastic Books Publishing and has a Facebook event page and a YouTube video.
Venue: Mercure Hull Royal Hotel from 1pm-midnight (earlier for Gold Ticket holders)
