Elizabeth Lang, a long-standing and exciting writer in IFWG Publishing’s stable of authors, has just returned from FanExpo in Regina. She provided us with a report and a few photos:
If you want a great venue for meeting diehard sci-fi and fantasy fans, and want to sell lots of books, come on down to the FanExpo Regina!
I just finished two fantastic days at the FanExpo Regina this past weekend. It may be small and only in its second year but it is already larger than last year, well organized and there are loads of enthusiastic sci-fi and fantasy fans, including many families with kids today. It has the largest percentage of people dressing up in costumes compared to others I’ve attended.
Elizabeth Lang writes to us:
On Sunday, January 12th, the Regina Beach Library hosted an author reading at their South Shore Library and Art Gallery Branch. The weather was gorgeous compared to the past week and the roads were good. There was a great turnout for a small town with many enthusiastic listeners.
It was an enjoyable, relaxing afternoon with coffee, tea and biscuits. Mary Balogh, the headliner, an award-winning author and multiple NY Times Bestselling author, gave a wonderful reading of her latest romance novel. Annette Bower shared a few scenes from a touching novel that explores society’s views on those who are weight-challenged, and I read the exciting first chapter of The Andromedans.
There’s nothing quite like having people erupt into applause when you’re finished reading. The Regina Beach crowd was friendly and very appreciative and everyone enjoyed mingling afterwards. The Library picked up copies of all of our books to add to their collection.
It was a wonderful day. Thank you to all the folks at the Regina Beach Library and those who attended the reading!
