It looks very much as though I will be having a busy year in terms of getting out and about, and meeting other bloggers/authors at various conventions and events across the UK.
I kick off with a truly lovely trip (and I am squeaking with excitement every time I think about it) to the Sanderson Hotel on 15th March. This is to attend the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, and I shall be accompanied by Alex Bell and Michaela Deas. I would love to celebrate the occasion with the bracelets below but I really cannot justify the expense!
My next outing is another one I am thrilled by (actually, I am just generally excited by all the cool things I am getting to do thanks to starting this blog!) The ladies at Headline Books have invited me to the following event, and I do hope to meet such luminaries of the blogging world as Gav from Next Read, Liz from My Favourite Books and Carolyn from Book Chick City!
After that is Eastercon, and it sounds very much like a posse of bloggers are planning to attend their first convention together for a Saturday trip. The draft programme has now been released and there are more than enough fascinating panels to have me looking forward to this.
Adele from Un:bound seems to have persuaded me to pop up to the Midlands for Alt:fiction as well:
Finally, I am considering doing the full convention weekend at Fantasy Con in September, although that currently seems like eons away with the amount I have planned to fill the first part of the year!
If you're heading to any of the above events, it would be great to meet you and put some faces to names!
