New Guest Announcements – And Tracy Hickman is coming to town with his Killer Breakfast!

We have a whole bundle of new guests to announce–including the fact that Pandora Celtica is once again joining us! We’re excited to have them!

This year’s Spotlight Guests now include Kevin J. Anderson, Tracy Hickman, and Trai Cartwright!

We have a whole bundle of new guests to announce–including the fact that Pandora Celtica is once again joining us! We’re excited to have them!

This year’s Spotlight Guests now include Kevin J. Anderson, Tracy Hickman, and Trai Cartwright!

Tracy Hickman is well known to the gaming and fantasy community, especially for his Dragonlance novel series. He also hosts a really cool event called Killer Breakfast, and this year we’re bringing it to AnomalyCon! Saturday morning at 9AM for an extra $5 attendees can join Tracy for donuts, coffee, and the chance to pit their level one characters against ultimate death! Here’s a cool explanation of what Killer Breakfast looks like.

Kevin J Anderson is probably one of the most published writers of our time. He’s well on his way to overtaking Isaac Asimov, and he’s certainly one of the best sources we can think of for both self publishing and big name publishing. He’s written Dune, Star Wars, Steampunk, and so much more.

Trai Cartwright is singlehandedly the coolest lady you haven’t met yet. She’s been batting in the big leagues of Hollywood for years, written, edited and pitched every genre under the sun, and she teaches amazing masterwork classes to teens and grownups alike. She knows how to hit it big, and she’s here to share the knowledge.

Peter J Wacks is the local expert on time travel, or so his doppelganger would have you believe. We’ve heard from his writing side, but this year he’s here to talk about self publishing, editing, and more.

Our programming this year is growing by leaps and bounds, and we’re so excited to share all of our writing, editing, publishing and business tracks with our audience. Don’t miss all the fun! Pre-registration is still only $25 for the whole weekend, and tickets for Killer Breakfast are available at registration!

Drink Contest!

AnomalyCon is seeking an official mixed drink and we’re turning to our closest fans to help us find it! Between now and November 1st we’re seeking mixed drink suggestions, both of the alcoholic and virgin variety, as well as names for them. During November we will be narrowing down all of the suggestions to the top three. Finally, during the annual Colorado Steampunks New Year’s Eve Eve party we’ll be serving these drinks up and voting on the winner. These two drinks will be served at AnomalyCon 2014 at the hotel bar. What’s in it for you? FAME AND PRIZES! The three finalists from November will all receive an AnomalyCon lapel pin and the winner in each category will receive the top secret object we are working on for 2014. You do not have to submit a cocktail recipe to submit a name, and vice versa–if one person wins for name and another for drink recipe they will both be awarded a prize! You’ll also get your name alongside the drink recipe in the 2014 AnomalyCon program!

To enter, comment on this post with your entry name or recipe. If multiple people enter the same name or recipe, the first one to post will be considered the original. You may also send us your suggestion through our Contact form.
