Penned Con is not your average book signing. A lot of readers and authors are accustomed to the traditional one-day signing where you stand in line, anxiously waiting to burst through the front doors of the room to hunt down your favorite author, all for a chance to spend a few precious moments with them before the author is forced to move on to the next person in line. The idea of a 2-day convention can be a little confusing at first so we want to give you a little idea of what you can expect to experience.
Penned Con is a family friendly event that was created as a full 2-day signing to allow you the chance to relax, hang out with old and new friends, visit with your fave authors/readers all in a laid back setting. You don’t have to worry about spending so much time in one line only to risk missing the opportunity to see another author. A 2-day signing allows for a kinetic and inspiring atmosphere that, once you experience it, you will come to realize is the perfect setting for all of your fangirl/fanboy needs.
As an established event, we host authors from all walks of publication, from indie to traditional, from newbie to authors with multiple books available. All are treated equally. All are given the opportunity to learn and grow, to discover new readers, and to have fun.
Attendees can join our authors in informative and hilarious panels, discover secrets of the trade in workshops, join us in reader and author interactive games, come party with us on the dance floor and help us give back to our partnered charity, Action for Autism through raffles and silent auctions.
We work very hard each year to create a family feel where everyone is welcome, whether you are an aspiring author, blogger, fan or a NYT Bestselling author. You will go home feeling like you’ve just expanded your networking circle, made lasting friendships and all while having tons of fun.
