#IWSGPit Twitter Pitch Party and #Illogicon

#IWSGPit is today - January 15, 2019
8:00 am - 8:00 pm Eastern Standard Time

Visit the #IWSGPit site for the rules and hashtags.

Dancing Lemur Press will be watching the feed, especially for #SF, #F, and #MG (with historical aspects.)



Last weekend we had a booth at IllogiCon VIII. We had a lot of interest in both the books and our prints, plus some asking for autographed copies (hint - work on that for the next con) and a couple people asking when Alex J. Cavanaugh’s next book would be out. (BIG HINT, ALEX!)

We got to meet fellow IWSG member, Samantha Bryant.

And here are some of the characters we met:

    1. I wish there were more from the weekend, but this wasn't a big cosplay type of con.

  14. I dig your convention characters which I have to admit appeals to me because I know the lines of Star Trek. I'd go as one of Treks characters but I'd need someone else equally versed and willing to pull off the gig. Looks like you guys had great fun!

  19. Hi, Diane! I'm not ready for a Twitter Pitch, but I appreciate the IWSG for making the opportunity available for those who are. IllogiCon VIII looks like a fun event. I, too, want to know when Alex's next book comes out!

  24. Hi Diane,

    Here I go again, arriving after the festivities have happened. What a collection of characters. Wonder if Alex will write faster?

  26. That's great that people want more of Alex's books! I'm sure he's busy writing.

    If you need me to autograph anything, let me know. I can certainly do that for the September show.
