JordanCon 9 Pre-Con GOH Interview

This is our pre-Con mini interview with author Guest of Honor Charles Gannon, for JordanCon 9.

1) Question: Have you gone on any literary pilgrimages?

Answer: Not exactly pilgrimages *just* for writing: I'm not wealthy enough to afford that! But I've travelled to different places or made side jaunts to be able to combine a research opportunity with other travel.

Countdown to JordanCon 9 Has Begun!

As you know, our author Guest of Honor this year is Charles Gannon, author of the spectacular Caine Riordan series.

We have a pre-Con mini interview with him starting tomorrow as we all get ready for our weekend of fun. We'll be posting one question and answer per day on social media. The full interview will be shared here at the end of the post series.

Follow along this week on Facebook during our Countdown to JordanCon to learn more about him!

Rivets & Robots: Weidnesday Blog! Pre JordanCon Track Highlight Reel!

So as promised this is our special full on sneak peak preview trailer for this year's Rivets & Robots, JordanCon Year 9 edition.

Before we get into the nitty gritty, this will be the last Weirdnesday Blog before the convention as obviously (and spoiler alert) JordanCon is next week. I might be a bit busy. There will not be a blog the week after either. So that means, first Wednesday of May will be the next blog, getting you ready for JordanCon 10 / 2018... but enough of that for now.
