Only 149 words recorded today, but I deleted a fair few that I’ll be rewriting. So in truth I probably clocked three or four hundred today.
Yesterday a company that ran most of the UKs horror conventions went tits up. This has hurt a lot of people, including those I know and consider friends. I’ll focus on the writers just here but what I’m saying can be said for all traders at these cons. This is a big part of their incomes and more importantly it’s a great chance to meet fans and make more fans. It’s a great chance to meet up with other writers and people in the genre. A lot of people feel at home at these cons, I know I did. A lot of writers and other traders have probably lost their money from booking their tables, along with hotel bookings. They’ve also lost the chance to earn income while at the cons.
It’s really easy for something like this to happen. So if there are writers whose work you enjoy then please spread the word about their work. It doesn’t cost anything to post a review or share a post on social media. A lot of writers will share the links on their social media profiles, hit the likes and the shares. It all helps.
