#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:

Hint taken! I'm working on it...

Natalie Aguirre said...

Sounds like an awesome event. And so cool that people are waiting for Alex's next book.

It sounds like a really fun event! I'm glad for Alex - even if it means the pressure is on a bit. :)

The pictures are fun on Instagram.

Looks like a fun event! How cool that you got to meet Samantha.

I'm sitting out this Twitter pitch, but good luck to all participants!

Pat Hatt said...

Sure looks like a grand time. Hopefully Alex takes the hint haha

Fun pictures!

You'll have to ask him when he's going to finish it.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Write faster.

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

Tonja Drecker said...

Wonderful pictures! Poor Alex is under pressure now ;)

The Cynical Sailor said...

Great pictures! Looking forward to Alex's next book too :-)

I hope to go to a con someday. Sounds like you had a great time.

Christine Rains said...

You meet such fun characters at cons! :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

We enjoy going just as much as having a booth there.

Sandra Cox said...

Sounds like Alex has a fan base:)

SpacerGuy said...

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!

Fun characters. I'm considering the pitch party. Thanks for the nudge.
Cheers, Diane.

Now that looks like it was a ton of fun. How awesome to meet a fellow IWSG member. Even more amazing...people asking about Alex! He's a legend!

It was fun to meet Samantha. She pointed out all the authors' books she knew to her friend.

Great pictures! I bet the Twitter pitch was a great success. So close, but I need my beta feedback first.

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!

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

What fun. Hope everyone at the Twitter Pitch are successful. No pressure on Alex, but your fans are waiting. :)

Sandra Cox said...

How did the pitch party go?
Have a fun, productive weekend.

Hi Diane,

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

I'm going now....

Michael Di Gesu said...

Some great costumes.... looks like you had fun!

Sherry Ellis said...

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.
