Episode 235: The Art of Working a Con with John Hartness
Episode 235! Thanks to John Hartness for jumping in as a last-minute guest for this week’s podcast. This week, we take advantage of the opportunity to discuss how to successfully work your table or booth at a convention, or how to work a con when you don’t have either of those things. We also give insight on how event organizers make some of their decisions.
John also helped us unbox some awesome donations we received last week, including a ton of great books from Falstaff – so much fun! Here’s the video:
About Falstaff Books
(in their own words)
Falstaff Books is a digital and print publishing company based in Charlotte, NC dedicated to bringing to life the best in fantasy, science fiction, horror, mystery, and dramatic literature. We love bringing amazing stories to light and giving incredible writers a voice. The battered, ignored, rejected “misfit toys” of fiction are all welcome at Falstaff Books, where we understand that every scar is a story and only with different voices can harmony be created.
Founded in January 2016 by three experienced professionals in the publishing field, self-publisher and small press author John G. Hartness, editor and anthologist Jaym Gates, and author and editor Jay Requard, Falstaff quickly became known for its activism and support of writers, readers, and the greater creative community publishing three anthologies, including the WeAreNotThis – Carolina Writers for Equality, and a number of wide-ranging genre novels in its first year.
In 2017 the publisher continued to grow, releasing over 40 stories in a variety of formats including electronic, trade paperback, and audio. In February 2018, Falstaff added a romance line: Falstaff Crush.
