Worldcon ideas?

Day 111. 99 pages, 44,204 words.

Not a lot to report today. The plan was to go to Linnanmäki amusement park with the girls, after which they are going to head to the kesämökki for a few days, leaving me a-bachelor-life-ing at home – or, technically, at work starting Monday. This is rather dependent on the weather, and of course on whether the car holds together. So far it seems to be working alright, but I need to remember to get some extra coolant for it just in case.

Worldcon is gearing up, and I still haven’t started my costume for Worldcon or Ropecon. I guess I’ll look into some sort of Edpool variant for Ropecon at least, since I have nothing much to do there.

Worldcon is looking like a busy time, at least the Thursday will be a bustle of activity for me. I’m still not really supposed to talk about it, but there will be some great opportunities to meet and learn about us independent authors, aka. self-published authors, aka. vanity press users.

Anyway, it’s going to be fun. And there will with any luck be some give-aways. I’m going to take a mess of business cards with my publication info on them, and a few copies of Arsebook that I still have lying around, and I’ll see what else I have in the give-away pile. Along with some print-outs of sample chapters and stuff.

Any ideas or suggestions or requests? Speak up here and let me know!

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.

    Are you going to have (or share) a table?

      The meet and greet on Thursday has a sort of give-away thing, but I can’t afford the outlay to provide stock to sell, let alone rent a table. Looked into it a year ago but it’s not happening. I’ll provide what I can at the authors’ event.
