Kristene Goes to the Creative Ink Festival – Vol. 3

Holy karg! Is it March already? Josh and I have been so busy outlining and starting the first draft of the fifth and final book of the series (which is going to blow your mind, just FYI), that the months have been flying by. The good news is that March means the annual Creative Ink Festival is right around the corner! WOO HOO! Once again, I will be journeying across the ocean to attend, to volunteer, and to speak on some crazy-good panels. (It’s only an hour-and-a-half ferry ride but that sounds adventurous, doesn’t it?) This year’s CIF promises to…

Where to find Kristene at the Creative Ink Festival

Spring is here and the annual author migration from dark writing cave to fun-filled festival has begun! Yes, once again I will be making the trek to the big city to take part in the amazing Creative Ink Festival in beautiful Burnaby, BC, Canada. If you didn’t make it to the sneak preview last year, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?! There, there, you can still catch all the fun this year. Writers, readers, and artists, you do not want to miss this event. If nothing else, you will have the opportunity to watch me and a panel of lovable goofballs…

Please Stand By

I wish this was the post where I joyfully share the news that Warpworld Volume 4 is with an editor and we are hard at work on the next installment. This is not that post. Instead, this is the post where I thank all you readers for your patience as we continue to make Seg and Ama’s next adventure as perfect as possible. So…thank you. 2015 was a difficult year. As some of you may know, my sister and my father died within six weeks of each other. I spent a good portion of this year traveling back and forth…

The Official Warpworld WorldCon Report 2015

My second WorldCon has come and gone, leaving me excited for the next opportunity to hang out with my tribe. This con was a bit different from others I have attended as it was more about an escape from reality than any kind of networking or business opportunity. Because of the recent loss of my father and my sister, I had decided not to attend the 73rd World Science Fiction Convention but, thankfully, the Consortium of Ridiculously Kind Persons intervened and sent me on my way. I was a bit sad that some of my favourite people were not able…

Kristene’s Creative Ink Festival Schedule

I’m thrilled to be participating in the very first Creative Ink Festival in Vancouver, BC on April 25th! This year a preview for the big event, which will be a weekend long festival for writers, readers, artists, and fans of genre fiction. You can blame firecracker Sandra Wickham for all this fun and frivolity as this festival is her creation. There’s a good chance you’ll spot me wandering around, being my usual chatty self,…

VCON Wrap-up AKA When Size Doesn’t Matter

I’m not sure how to start this post about my experience at VCON 39–partly because I’m still buzzing from the fun of the con and partly because I’m still buzzing from the root canal I underwent as soon as I returned home. (Mostly the former, I think). I was a bit concerned that after the WOW factor of my first SF/F con, last year, that little old VCON would seem kind of meh. It was not meh. It was the opposite of meh. It was totally anti-meh. Sword fighting demo by students of Academie Duello Why? For starters, I got…

Saturday Oct. 4 Perspectives on Self-Publishing and Hybrid Publishing 14:00 – 15:00 As self publishing continues to grow, how can authors compete in a saturated marketplace and be heard among the "noise"?
