LepreCon – OMG is it already here?

I’m in official panic mode. LepreCon marks the release of The Apocalypse — which we’re still scrambling to piece together. Yes, it’s going to the printers (fortunately a local one) at the very last second. This book is cuhhhhhhrazy!

LepreCon is especially special to me (That sounds funny… especially special.) because it was my first con ever. Wow, what a journey the last year has been. I had no idea what to expect and was like a kid in the candy store – well, a year later and I still am. I’m more excited now than before because now I know people and am excited to see familiar faces, meet more readers (Seriously, I love meeting you guys) as well as see all the awesomeness of the con.

Here are the panels I’ll be on — and I’m definitely feeling pretty humbled to be paneling with these ahhhhmazing folks. I hope you guys can make it! I have 6 panels… count ’em… 6! Plus the book release Saturday night! My books will also be available in the vendor room at one of the tables (I don’t know details yet but will let you guys know as soon as I do) and a book signing. So it will be an AWESOME weekend!

In a world where everyone is building their own world, how do you stand out? Our panel will discuss the nuts and bolts, coherent design, and scale of vision of creating imaginary places that we want to visit.

Alchemy of Cover Art

[moderated panel]

We do actually judge a book by its cover; all kinds of marketing data says so. So what makes for a good cover? That’s driven as much by magic as it s by data.  Our panel will try to help you discover where that magic might come from.

Advanced Steampunk

You get that steampunk is a real genre,and there’s more to it than gluing gears to stuff. Good. Here’s your chance to plunge into the smoke with our experts and talk about the deeper themes, emerging tropes and possible future of our imaginary past.

Apocalypse How?


How do you think it will all end? Fire? Ice? Zombies? Robots? Nuclear war? Alien invasion? Does Vegas have odds for these things?

EDIT: Thanks to my awesome publicist who saw this post and responded with info right away (I told you she rocks) Readers can find T.M. Williams books at LepreCon in space#C-4, the AZ Publishing Services booth, right inside the dealer room doors in the double space. We will have book shelves with all these books for your perusal. 



  1. I have never been to a Con. Every time I plan one(twice now) I find out I am pregnant. Lol. This one sound amazing! Trying for one next year. 🙂

      • Haha! Pregnant right now, we planned around Christmas to go to Dallas and end of January I started getting sick. Sure enough, tested positive. This is our last though, tubes tied this round. Going to have my little 4 person family and be able to do all the things I couldn’t if we keep going 🙂

  2. Someday I will make it to one! Sounds like you will be busy. =)
