BristolCon Fringe: August 2017 - Q&A

August 29th, 2017 · Comments

As we still had some time before Gemma had to leave for her train, we were able to do a joint Q&A with both readers. We continued to address issues of covers and marketing, including why Gemma writes under her initials but Lucy does not. We also talked about use of foreign and invented languages.

BristolCon Fringe: August 2017 - Lucy Hounsom

August 29th, 2017 · Comments

Our second reader for August was Lucy Housom whose second novel in her Worldmaker series, Heartland, was published that week. The series will conclude with Firestorm next year and we have already booked Lucy to come back and read from it.

Much of the Q&A involved covers and marketing. Lucy's books have recently been re-launched with dramatically different covers. Because she works for a well known major bookstore chain, Lucy has a special insight into how books are marketed. Lucy also discussed her podcast, Breaking the Glass Slipper.

BristolCon Fringe: August 2017 - G.V. Anderson

August 29th, 2017 · Comments

Our first reader for August was G.V. Anderson who read from her story, "Das Steingeschöpf", which is a finalist in this year's World Fantasy Awards. It is Gemma's first professional sale and we are all very proud of her.

Because Gemma had to catch an early train home we did some Q&A with her immediately after her reading. Fortunately we did have time for a joint Q&A session later in the evening.
