Prepare to spend March 2-4 with your fellow genre writers and fans of all things fantasy, futuristic and paranormal in the immortal city of New Orleans.
Special guests include Karen Marie Moning (keynote luncheon speaker), Bob Mayer, Angela James, literary agents, and editors from NY publishers and e-press.
Hosted at the beautiful New Orleans Marriott Hotel, the conference features 25+ workshops along with pitch sessions and book signings. Whether you're drawn to the wonder of steampunk or determined to learn how to craft a solid pitch, the 2012 Fantasy on the Bayou FF&P Conference has workshops covering those topics and others, including the latest on the future of publishing, what editors want, nurturing an audience, and crime scene forensics.
A trip to New Orleans wouldn't be complete without a party! Attendees will be treated to an awards dinner/banquet where we'll present awards, pin some PROs, and celebrate the greatness that stems from our PAN authors. There's also a strong chance for some night-time strolls through the city to feed your muse for your next novel!
Registration for FF&P members is only $250 USD. Additional information will be accessible through the official FF&P website at romance-ffp.com. The hotel rate is $195/night (plus tax) and will be available to you 2 days before and 2 days after the conference.
Keep watching the website as more details are announced soon.
