October 2016 Events

Almost all of the BTP authors are going to be at an event this month and it will be the first time BTP has a vendor table. Come check us out if you are in the Cedar Rapids area.

ICON October 27-30

Since many of us are based in Iowa, we head over to ICON, a science fiction and fantasy convention at the Cedar Rapids Marriott. This is going to be the first year that BTP has a table where you can buy any of our books.

Shannon will be at the author signing on Thursday the 27th at Barnes and Nobel. Previously, we said Dylan, Cassie, and Stacie would also, but it looks like things didn’t work out (deadlines were missed).

Dylan is doing DreamCon, a writing program for high school students. The schedules aren’t out, but once we have them, we’ll post them.

We will have a table in the dealer’s hall with a number of us hanging around. Dylan may do some panels (besides DreamCon) but, again, no schedule to post.

Book Bum’s Workshop (November 5, 2016 from 09:00 to 16:00)

Set at the West Liberty Public Library, this is a set of workshops for writers on various topics. Dylan will on two panels:

  • 09:45: Publishing a paper back
  • 14:00: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Genre

I.O.W.A. 2017 (August 5, 2017)

This is set at Lindale Mall in Cedar Rapids and is a fantastic time to chat with authors and buy some books. It was a lot of fun last year. Cassie, Stacie, Shannon, and Dylan plan on attending.
