PP WebCon

PhotobucketThe first-ever cyber mystery conference is coming to the web on October 24. Poisoned Pen Press publisher and president Rob Rosenwald talks about PP WebCon in this article at Check out the official WebCon site. It's a great concept for people like me who don't like travel, hotels or crowds, not to mention those who may find today's conventions just too expensive.

I have to admit that Mary and I will probably not be much in evidence. Mary has been doing a vast amount of work in helping to organize author presentations and feels that it would be a bit of a conflict of interest for her to take a large role. For me, it would be a conflict with my personality. Presenting myself as an author makes me uncomfortable.

However, Guests of Honor Dana Stabenow and Lee Child will be there, live!

In fact, PP WebCon will feature live material all day.

  • Live audio where people can call in, or click to talk through their computers to hosts and guests.
  • Live talks or presentations on Video from individual authors where people can ask text questions and the author answers and responds on live video.
  • Live visits from authors in the Coffee Shop - a text chat room where authors, fans and others who have registered can mingle and chat by text.

    In addition, pre-recorded material including video, audio, and text-only panels and presentations will be made available to registrants to view and listen to at any time on convention day, and beyond. There will be video book trailers and a video archive featuring Barbara Peters' interviews with more than 80 of the world's top mystery and crime writers.

    Registration costs $25 and all registrants receive a goody bag with a variety of items including short stories, audio and video clips, and a $20 gift certificate at The Poisoned Pen bookstore. 100% of all profits will go to a public library to be chosen at random from registrants' nominations.
