nEvermore, a New Kind of Anthology. Edgar Allan Poe Time!

One other post today. This time it's all about an Indigogo campaign for an Edgar Allan Poe-themed anthology called nEvermore that celebrates both mystery and horror: the two things Poe did so well. Please click the raven below and take a look. It's edited by the esteemed Nancy Kilpatrick and Caro Soles, and it will be published by well-respected Canadian publisher, EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing. I am working with them to get the word out about the campaign, so I would (and we all would) be deeply grateful if you contributed and helped us spread the word.

And hey! Writers! It will also mean calls for submission for you writers, so there may be something in it for you down the road! So yes. Click the Raven. You won't be sorry.

My Can-Con Schedule: Ottawa Awaits!

A rare day of two blog posts. Here's the first one for your reading pleasure. -- Beverly

This weekend I am attending Can-Con, a science fiction and fantasy convention (with a little horror and comics thrown in for good measure,) in Ottawa. As an immigrant to Canada I am especially excited that the hotel is only a few blocks from Parliament Hill. I plan to walk down and hope to get a few people to join me. It's likely to be a slow, easy walk since my lungs are still in the throes of a lingering chest cold. Breathing. It's hard sometimes. :\

But I digress. My schedule for this convention is quite simple.


Whatever I feel like doing.


Whatever I feel like doing.


Noon, in Room 2: What does a publicist do and what can a publicist do for you? This one is me and one of my clients, the delightful Marie Bilodeau, author of the Destiny series and much more.

1 pm to 3 pm, in Room 5: Private consultations with yours truly. It is for online image and social media critique and advice. This means you get free coaching and see what kinds of services I can offer aside from traditional publicity. These are very limited, so sign up at registration early!

Important Convention Links

Panelists. I like this one because I am on top. Yay alphabetical order!

Special Events. I like the look of some of these, especially the horror film screenings!

Pocket Program. Always a useful item.

Hope to see you there this weekend. Please don't hesitate to say hello if you know me from online! Have any questions in the meantime? Email me here. Also, one more plug for my mailing list! You pretty much only get notices when I post a blog post, so it's a quiet list. You can sign up for that right here. And you totally should!
