IMPORTANT UPDATE! Call for beta readers over at my blog, check it out!
LFCC (London Film and Comic Con) is drawing ever nearer, and I am getting more and more excited - even more so than usual. I love conventions the change to see old friends and meet exciting new people - but this time, I am particularly excited about the guests. There are a whole host of people I admire booked for LFCC, but two in particular stand out.
First is Gail Simone, author of the Batgirl comics, amongst many others. I've chatted to her on Twitter many a time, and she's funny, fierce and generally amazing. I can't wait to meet her and get her to sign my book (possibly as "Smarg").
The other person who I'm dying to see is Malorie Blackman, children's laureate and ridiculously prolific author, whose novels genuinely changed my life. My writing, my studies and my personal beliefs owe so much to Malorie Blackman's work. It's going to be a struggle to keep my cool and not burst into joyful tears all over her.
I'm offering free copies of my YA novel, Spider Circus, to anyone willing to write an honest review (and post said review on Amazon or Smashwords). And I do mean honest - I genuinely do not mind if you don't like the book or think there are things that need improving. I'm not at all precious about my writing.
If you're interested, email me and I'll send you a copy!
Read Alice's short stories at Smashwords and Amazon, and keep track of updates via her Facebook group and her blog.
Enjoy Footloose updates and the ramblings of a gin-soaked mind? Then follow Ally on Twitter!
only a couple of days away! We look forward to seeing you there! you
know who else is gonna be there? STAN LEE.
If nothing else it means LFCC will be busy busy busy, but in an ideal
world maybe Stan Lee might take a walk round the small press area to
remember the roots of the comic industry, and I will shake his hand and
tell him how grateful I am for everything hes created.
Don't crush my dreams okay, it might happen.
We seem to be getting a lot of interest in Cherry recently- thanks
