Coming Soon: Coyote Con, A Virtual Digital Author Conference

Drollerie Press is hosting Coyote Con, the “First Annual 31 Day Digital Author Conference,” to be held May 1-31, 2010. Best of all, it's free (registration is required and to attend Special Sessions you need to obtain a ticket, which you can get here.

I’ll be on two of the panels. The first is Science Fiction Romance Q&A (Special Session) on May 2 at 2 p.m. EST. I’ll be joining author Joely Sue Burkhart. Also, attendees can ask questions for author S.L. Viehl during the chat and Ms. Viehl will post the answers on her blog Paperback Writer.

On Saturday, May 8 at 11 p.m. EST, I’ll be on the Steampunk Romance panel (Special Session) with author Nathalie Gray (FULL STEAM AHEAD).

About the conference:

Coyote Con is a 31 day digital author conference. If you have an interest in any of our topics, you are welcome to attend. There is no cost to attend the con, but registration is required as space is limited. Registration will open next week.

We hope to provide topics on issues of race, sex, ability, religion and colonialism in fiction, and incorporate a non-western perspective to include a global audience. The chats will be scheduled each weekend at various times so that at least some sessions will be a good time for your time zone, wherever you are.

Each weekend (May 1 and 2, 7-9, 14-16, 21-23, 28-30, 2010) authors, editors, and other interested parties will be talking about our topics, alone or in panels, in a text chat or audio/visual conference environment. In conjunction, Joely Sue Burkhart has organized a MayWriMo writing challenge, and there will be Word Wars in the chat rooms throughout the week.

Here is the complete schedule of events. Register for Coyote Con.

See you there!

Joyfully yours,
