Guests for ArmadaCon 25

Post by Liz W » Thu Jan 24, 2013 7:39 pm

Hi all

I am pleased to announced our first 2 guests for ArmadaCon 25.

Our first guest was announced at the Closing Ceremony of Con 24.
This is Neill Gorton, who is a director of Millennium FX; a company that specialises in prosthetics, animatronics and special make-up effects.
Neill's attendance is still subject to confirmation.

Our second guest is an author called Frances Hardinge.
She is, predominatly, a childrens author; but her books, I have been told, can be enjoyed by children and adults alike!
Make sure you visit Frances' website, it's brilliant!

To find out more information please visit the 'This Years Guests' section of our website

Hugs

Liz

Hello,

That's splendid to hear that Frances Hardinge will be an Armadacon guest! Her books are brilliant, and in person she's just a delight. I think I might fly in from the US to attend the convention. She's right up there with Terry Pratchett and Susanna Clarke as one of my favorite writers.

Some memorable lines to give you a taste of her style:

“Revenge is a dish best served unexpectedly and from a distance - like a thrown trifle.”

“'I generally find,’ Clent murmured after a pause, ‘that it is best to treat borrowed time the same way as borrowed money. Spend it with panache, and try to be somewhere else when it runs out.’"

Anna M.C.

Hi all

I have just updated the website with the details of our 3rd guest

His name is David Wake and he is an author; he is also a fan and a regular at EasterCon. One of his published novels/e-novels is taken from the view point of an artifically intelligent mobile phone!

More on the website!

Hugs

Liz

Smashing news Liz :D , and as well as his books I'm rather looking forward to hearing about his experiences as an actor, playwright, director and theatre technician too.

Hi all

Just a couple of guest updates; as we have had some exciting news today!
More on that in a moment!

Firstly, even at this late stage; we are still unsure if Neill Gorton will be with us.
Millennium FX is extremely busy at the moment and Neill may be unable to get away
As soon as we know his availability, we will let people know


Now for more about the exciting news....

We have had it confirmed, today, that Mitch Benn will be joining us at ArmadaCon 25!
Mitch is a writer, presenter, comedian and musician; amongst other things!
Here is his website: http://www.mitchbenn.com/

As it has only been confirmed today; we have very little other information, at the moment
The only thing that we can say is that he will only be with us for Sunday

More information when we get it!

See you all in a couple of weeks :-)

Liz
