OWSCyCon2019 Is Only Seven Short Days Away

That’s right folks, the OWS CyCon 2019 is almost here. And I’m really excited to give you a sneak peek of some the things I’ve been working on…

If You Don't Know About CyCon...

Either you’ve been hiding under a rock, or you’re reasonably new to my blog. But, that said, OWS CyCon 2019 is one of the largest online book events of the year, bringing readers and authors together.

From May 17th through May 19th, we’re brining you a weekend of books, games, book readings, tournaments, video discussions, and more…

What's My Role In All This?

This year I’ve been working double-duty on the event, as both Fantasy Genre Manager, and overall Director for OWS CyCon 2019.

This means I’ve been very busy for the last three months, bringing in authors, and working with them to put together some amazing events. Regardless of the genre you read, you’re bound to find something you’ll enjoy.

NOTE: More events are being added to the line-up all the time, including the video chats (recorded or live).

From The Sci-Fi Genre

11 Sci-Fi Authors give you a count-down of their Top-5s. Topics range from my entry on AIs to Sci-Fi Novels, from Sci-Fi foods to places.

From The Fantasy Genre

Fantasy Blog Tour

As part of the OWS CyCon 2019, we asked our fantasy authors to write about what makes their world, or the world of another author unique. Each of them has come up with very different answers which reflect their writing processes, their research methods, and their views on world building.

Genre-Crossing Events

Story Time is a great way to discover new books and amazing authors.

Each video or audio clip is a sample from a book, used with permission from the author, and read by one of the CyCon team. For the fantasy genre, each book reading is provided in both audio and video formats, so you can choose the listening format that works best for you.

Character Wars

OWS CyCon is proud to announce that we are teaming up with the “Fantasy and Sci-Fi Readers Lounge” group over on Facebook. For three days our amazing authors will be popping in and out of the group to run games, give away prizes, and give readers a chance to learn more about them and their work.

Hangout with Sci Fi, Fantasy, and Urban Fantasy authors in real time all weekend long! There will be games and prizes galore.

Meet The Authors

Many of the participating authors & supporters have put together online booths, which are similar to the booths at a fair, or convention.

You can read a little about the author, their work, and where you can find them during CyCon. More importantly you can comment on the author’s posts, and they’ll respond where possible. This is a great chance to interact with the folks behind the books.
