Broad Universe at WorldCon

Broad Universe is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting, encouraging, honoring, and celebrating women writers and editors in science fiction, fantasy, horror and other speculative genres. I joined in July 2014.

I’ll be working the Broad Universe table in the Dealers Room in Kansas City next weekend (August 19-21), selling The Dangerous Type, Kill By Numbers, and No More Heroes, along with a few copies of Lost Angels just for fun.  I should be at the table Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons from 1-3 PM.

I’ve also organized a Rapid Fire Reading for Sunday morning from 10-11:30 AM.  10 women will read 6-minute excerpts from their work, both published and in-progress.  Books will be given away. You’ll get just the briefest taste of a wide range of work. Remember, the first taste is free.

I participated at last year’s WorldCon RFR and it was a whole lot of fun.  Last year, it spanned from alternate history to space opera, from portal fantasy to steampunk to erotica. I’m really looking forward to seeing what this year will bring.

Here’s the lineup:
