Maria will be at the following bookstores, conferences and conventions in 2015:
September 25-27, 2015
Participating in the Speculative Fiction Southeast Convention 2015. SF:SE. (Sherton Orlando North, 600 North Lake Destiny Road. Maitland, FLorida, 32751, 407-660-9000, If you book through the SF:SE website you'll get a great $65/night deal on the hotel!). Here's what the Conference Director has to say: "SF:SE is a mashup of standard conference/convention styles, with a tagline sentiment of 'not your mother's writers conference'. So, kind of...Writer's Digest on acid, for all illustrators/authors and enthusiasts of Speculative Fiction. A lot of fun, basically." Other authors attending are: Kelley Armstrong, Jacqueline Carey, and Carrie Jones.
October 16-18, 2015
Writer Guest of Honor at Another Anime Con. (Radisson Hotel Manchester, 700 Elm Street, Manchester, New Hampshire, 03101, 603-206-4109). This is from their website: Another Anime Convention is run by people who love Japanese culture especially Japanese animation located at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester, NH. It is a place for fans to gather in New Hampshire for a three day convention to enjoy events, special guest's and other media that celebrate aspects of Japanese culture. While our focus of the convention is Japanese animation, we also expand to other aspects of fandoms such as steampunk, science fiction and internet media. We offer panels, workshop's, anime screenings, a masquerade (skits and performances to show off costumes) a dance, karaoke, game shows, formal dance, AMV room, video games and much more.
