Hi, all! I will be at NASFic DetCon 1 this weekend from Friday, July 18th through Sunday, July 20th. I have a couple of panels I am moderating as well as a kaffeeklatsch (kaffeeklatsch=consulting time for free if you play your cards right! ;))
North American Science Fiction Convention (DetCon) Schedule
Econ 101 of Self-Publishing, Nicolet A, Saturday 11 a.m.
The media is filled with news about self-publishing, but to do it properly, there is a price to pay! This panel will touch on a series of topics and give an estimate of how much things can cost: 1) The difference between traditional and self-publishing, 2) Why an editor is important, 3) How to commission artwork, 4) What copyright is, 5) Marketing Ideas, and 6) The difference in creating e-books versus print books
Kaffeeklatsch, KaffeeKlatsch2, Saturday 1 p.m.
Creators and Brand Identity, Mackinac West, Sunday 12:00 noon
Neil Gaiman. John Scalzi. Would they be mid-list authors in a world without the Internet? Can you be famous in 2014 only by writing or making art? How does a creator build a brand?
I hope to see you there. Please don’t hesitate to stop me if you see me and say hello. I will be happy to chat. I’ll also have information about AutoCrit, which is a company for which I do social media, so ask me about editing help, too!
