Book Launch

VCON’s Multi-Author Book Launch Reception

Come, one, come all! Join us for a cultured evening hearing brief readings from local speculative fiction authors with books that have recently or will soon be published.

In addition to the readings, there will be food, drink, music, a wonderful Master of Ceremonies (our well-received host from 2014 returns!), breaks for mingling, book signing, adoring fans talking to amazing authors, and a secret theme in keeping with the British Invasion theme of this year’s VCON. Reading blocks are expected to be up to 10 minutes for full-length works, 5 minutes for short stories, to give people a good taste of the writing.

Date: Friday, October 5th, 2018
Time: 7:00-10:00 PM

This event is free and open to the general public
so invite all your bookworm friends to this fun event!

For Authors

Are you a local author with a book in any genre of speculative fiction (sci-fi, fantasy, horror, paranormal, superhero, etc.) that has or will have a book published during the eligibility period? Then please contact the Book Launch Coordinator at booklaunch [at] vcon [dot] ca for more info – but do hurry, space is limited!

Authors participating in the book launch are not required to attend VCON.

Since there was no book launch held in 2017, eligible works can be from the past TWO years; any which have been or will be published between VCON 2016 and the end of 2018.
