Have You Registered for RomantiCon Yet?!
Have you registered for Ellora's Cave RomantiCon yet?!
The theme is The Time Machine, the dates are Sep 29 - Oct 1 and it's being held at the Akron City Centre. It's going to bigger and better than ever, with a fabulous new venue and loads of new activities—plus a very special addition to the book fair: a Caveman Revue! Plus, you get to play dress-up both Fri and Sat nights!
First Stop: The Stone Age. On Friday night, we'll whisk you back 20,000 years, to a time when cave-dwelling men and women indulged their every primitive urge without hesitation or shame. Ellora's Cavemen will pay homage to the era with a primal fire dance, led by the delicious Caveman, Angelo. We'll feast on the ribs of beasts (plenty of veggies too for our vegan patrons) and other delectables at an outdoor barbecue, then dance like savages until we drop! Wear your best animal skins, bones, teeth, and other ceremonial garb. And leave your civilized self behind.
Second Stop: The Future. Don't worry; there will still be cavemen in the future — Ellora's Cavemen, that is! Our alpha warlords will be dancing to a completely different tune on Saturday night. Let your imagination run wild and dress in your favorite futuristic style, from Barbarella to HG Wells' The Time Machine! There will be prizes for the best costume, our annual awards ceremony, then we'll dine like royalty and dance like there's no tomorrow!
Third Stop: The Present. Sunday night, for those attendees not leaving until Monday, brings us to our annual pizza, crazy hat & bingo party hosted by Ellora's Cave Publisher, Raelene Gorlinsky. Wear your gaudiest head garb, unwind with the Ellora's Cavemen, and enjoy your last night with us in a festive, laughter-filled setting!
Book Fair and Cavemen RevueThis event, on Sunday, October 1 from 11:00am to 3:00pm, is free and open to the public. EC authors will be on hand to autograph books and cover flats for readers. This year, for the first time, Ellora's Cavemen will perform some favorites from conventions past! Does that rock, or what?!
But wait, there's more!
Meet the Editors: EC editors will be at the conference to present workshops, answer questions, hear pitches and just generally hang out and meet readers, authors and aspiring authors.
Workshops, Games & Focus Groups: A fabulous lineup of new sessions for readers, authors and aspiring authors. There will also be special games and even a pole-dancing class!
And my personal favorite...
Wait for it...
Open Cover Model Photo Shoot: Watch a real live outdoor photo shoot with our Caveman cover models! The photos you see taken here will turn up on covers and in advertisements in the year to come.
If all that isn't enough to make you bouncing off your seat with excitement to register, then how about this?
