Visiting EPICon in Williamsburg
Items that people use were highly recommended. After all, they don't throw away fans on a hot day. One panelist recalled how people lined up when an author gave away luggage tags. Often authors are encouraged to send things for a conference. If you aren't going, don't send items because they will get thrown away at the end. Also, be sure that your handouts are appropriate for the group.
Since I had little idea of what this conference was about, I was glad I could check it out after only a short drive from my home. This event was much smaller than I expected it to be since e-books are becoming such an important part of the market. I expect the conference will be larger next year. I was proud that Billie and Mike were outstanding contributors to this year's event.
Congratulations to Mike for winning the best mystery award and to Marilyn Meredith and Beverly Lauderdale for being finalists at EPICon.!
