Post WorldCon thoughts

It has been a few days now since I returned home from Worldcon in Helsinki. Worldcon 75 to be precise. But for me it was Worldcon 1. I’ve been to national cons in Sweden, to Archipelacon in Åland, and to two Fantasycons in the UK, but this was my first worldcon.

It’s a massive experience. I arrive Thursday afternoon as I had other commitments before the con which meant I missed the first one and a half days, but I still got so much out from the con during the three and a half days I was there.

My WorldCon

The programme for WorldCon 2017 in Helsinki is now official. I am delighted to be in no less than three programme items! Even more delighted by the fact that all three are on really interesting topics. I am also very humbled by the company I’m in. And a bit nervous.

My schedule at Kontur

Kontur 2017 loggaI will be attending this year’s Swecon. I’m in two panels, one as a moderator and one as panelist. I’m really looking forward to both, so please come and listen:

Efter bokbloggarna (moderator)
Friday 17:00 – 17:45, Akademien (Hotell Clarion Gillet)
Bokbloggandet har avtagit inom sf-fandomsfären. Vad har ersatt det? Hur används sociala medier för att diskutera läsande och fandom? Hur fungerar interaktionen mellan fans och bokdiskussioner över medier som Facebook, Instagram och Twitter? I hur stor utsträckning är bokbloggandet fortfarande aktivt?

Så gör vi för att få något skrivet!
Saturday 15:00 – 15:45, Gustavianum (Hotell Clarion Gillet)
Att skriva är inte alltid lätt och roligt. Hur gör vi för att få berättelserna att trots allt bli färdiga, utan att tappa motivation och eget intresse på vägen? Författare berättar sina knep för att komma sig för med att skriva, fortsätta skriva, och bli klara.

Apart from those two, I’ll hang around, attending some of the numerous, seriously interesting other programme items or chatting to people in the bar.

A new book

I just signed a contract for a new book. It’s a children’s book that will be published this autumn. A story I originally wrote by request from my kids.

I am of course extremely happy about this, as it is something I didn’t really intend when the project started.

It’s a humoristic book, aimed at children aged 7-11. Initially, at least, it will only be available in Swedish.

 

TellUS

tellus_inbjudan

This Saturday, December the 3rd, is the day of TellUs – the 2016 edition of the yearly book fair in Linköping.

I’ll be there as well as a whole bunch of other writers. Please drop by for a chat, and/or getting a book signed.

The library, where the fair is, will be open 10.00-16.00.

You’ll find me at table 41 – very close to the library’s info desk.

See you there!
