On Saturday, the hordes of Black Library fandom and authorage (and artists and editors and salesfolk and everyone else) will be descending upon Warhammer World in Nottingham to take part in the annual celebration of Warhammer and 40K literature that is Black Library Live. It’s one of my favourite events of the year, packed with opportunities to talk to readers of BL fiction on a variety of topics, as well as signing latest releases and old favourites. It’s a packed day – if I were a visitor I’m sure I’d find it hard to decide between some of the seminars – and they keep us guests busy. If you want to listen to me blather on with other writerly types, here’s what I’ll be doing.
10am – Space Marines panel in the canteen.
11.15am – Warhammer panel in the canteen.
12.30pm – Audio drama panel in the boardroom.
3.00pm – Horus Heresy panel in the canteen (expect this one to be rammed full!).
4.15pm – Signing desk. I believe there will be copies of The Primarchs available if you want to get hold of my novella, The Lion, currently being serialised in Hammer and Bolter e-magazine.
All of this is subject to change, obviously, but is correct as far as I am aware. See you there and I hope you have a great time – I will.
If you aren’t one of those attending BLLive!, I am also a guest at Discover festival near Leicester on 18th-20th May. There will be a host of authors and publishing types holding forth, so for fans and would-be writers alike it’s a great chance to speak to those who try to make a living in this industry. Details can be found on the Discover website.
