Maria will be at the following bookstores, conferences and conventions in 2016:

April 8-10, 2016 Attending SUPANOVA Con in Gold Coast AUSTRALIA! (Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre, Cnr Gold Coast Highway & TE Peters Drive, Broadbeach, Queensland 4218, AUSTRALIA). This is from their website: "Supanova Pop Culture Expo, since 2000, is where the public comes face to face with Supa-Star celebrities and the creative talent that inspire their imaginary worlds under one big roof.

Gathered from and surrounded by the wonderful worlds of comic books, animation/cartoons, science-fiction, pulp TV/movies, toys, console gaming, trading cards, fantasy, entertainment technology, books, internet sites and fan-clubs, the result is an amazing atmosphere tailor made for expressing your inner geek and where getting into cosplay (cos-tume role-play) is the obvious thing to do! It's Comic-con, Australian style!"
