I’m heading to America

This February I will be attending my first American SFF convention as a traditionally published author. I will be appearing at….

Capricon43 – 2-5th February, Chicago


I will be appearing on panels and signing books in the USA for the first time since I’ve been published. This is a 4 day convention and my first trip to Chicago as well. It’s been a few years since I visited America, so I am really looking forward to it.

Once the schedule is finished, I will be able to provide more information on which panels I’ll be on. Also, I believe they have author signing sessions, so hopefully I will be able to do one of those during the convention. I expect there will be a dealer room, but obviously you can bring your own books to get signed.

Are you a local? Or have you visited the city a lot? What are your top 3 places to eat? Remember, it’s going to the middle of winter, and the convention is being held at the Sheraton Grand Chicago Riverwalk. So, what’s really good that’s not too much of a hike?

Hopefully I will see some of you there!

  2. There’s a place a few blocks away with great homemade pasta, wines, and cocktails – Il Porcellino. Roughly a 10-15 minute walk (I’d suggest calling a car, as Chicago can be brutally cold at that time on the river so close to the lake). I live in the Philadelphia area and am unlikely to get there this year, but I hope you enjoy!

    1. Hi Nick, that’s perfect. Thank you! I love fresh pasta and it sounds exactly like my kind of place. If I can get a table booked, I will definitely go there one night. Cheers!
