Spooky Empire is Coming!

Mark your calendars for the fantastic Spooky Empire Convention coming to Orlando, Florida the weekend of October 7, 8, and 9, 2011. Yours truly will be putting together and running the Author Track of writers and creators discussion panels for the second year. Spooky Empire is one of the largest horror conventions in the United States, family friendly, and plenty to see and do for all. I hope to see you there!

If you are a horror author, Young Adult included, and you would be interested in being a panelist at this convention, please email me at: auntiemaim@auntiemaim.com for more information.

Spooky Empire Convention: Author Panel Track!

Auntie Maim has been asked to coordinate and run the author panel track for October’s Spooky Empire: Ultimate Horror Weekend, in Orlando!

The author page at www.spookyempire.com is already off and running, with many more authors to be added yet. Just hover your cursor over “Guests” and you’ll see the Authors page. Click on it and check out who will be attending.

The panel schedule is close to done, and then the table schedule can be completed. Table schedule, you ask? Why yes – the authors will have meet and greet times for signings and they’ll have copies of their books there, too, so you can pick up a copy as you stop to say “Hi!”

Auntie Maim would like to thank Spooky Empire for this opportunity to help out, and the show is sure to be a blast!

Ancient City Con, July 10 & 11 2010

Auntie Maim will be attending as a guest.

Ancient City Con is a sci-fi, fantasy, anime, gaming, and fandom convention held in Jacksonville, Florida. Located at the Hyatt in Jacksonville, it is a fun and successful con (while being relatively new) that is about to hold its fourth annual event.

We hope to see you there, if you live in Florida, or you can make the trip. There will be plenty to do, and some great shopping, as well!

Oasis 23 Panels for Auntie Maim

The panel schedule for Oasis 23 has been posted! Here are my panels:


What is the future of publishing?  / panelist, Friday at 3pm


What is selling in Horror? / moderator, Saturday at 10am


Sex at 10 / panelist, Saturday at 10pm (this is an annual topic favorite, discussing sex in writing and entertainment).


Charles Darwin and the origins of the undead. / panelist, Sunday at 12pm


As always, if you visit this website and go to the convention, please do stop by my table (or catch me after a panel) and say hi. Got any writing questions while we’re at it? I’d love to discuss them with you.

Gearing up for Oasis 23 in Orlando!

Oasis 23 (a most excellent Science Fiction convention) put on by OASFiS is coming up on Memorial Day weekend in Orlando, Florida and Auntie Maim will be there along with many other guests (check out the Blogroll on the left for the Oasis link for all the details).

I’ll have a table at this one, so if you’re in the area, stop by and say hi. The panel schedule is still being worked out, but I should be on some of them.

See you all there!

AuntieMaim.com Relaunch!

Come on in and take a look around; it’s all been refurbished, cleaned up, upgraded, and improved! The links are on the left sidebar now, in separate categories, each on their own mini scroll. Project links appear on those individual pages, as well.

The best part is, I can now update the news page on the fly when I’m attending conventions, right from my beloved phone. It doesn’t get better than that, folks!

Welcome to the new “world of Auntie Maim”!
